Around Czorsztyn Lake

At the foot of the Pieniny and Groce stretches a picturesque Czorsztyn Lake. On the lake shore you can find beaches and water sports equipment rentals; sailing in such scenery is a pure pleasure! On the southern side of the lake, just above the dam that separates Dunajec and that contributed to the creation of the lake, towers the castle in Niedzica. This building was used as a watchtower on the Polish-Hungarian border that used to run here.
On the opposite side of Nidzica, on the steep hill, you will find the ruins of the castle in Czorsztyn. This fortress used to guard the Dunajec crossing, and today it is adapted for sightseeing and constitutes a perfect vantage point. On the opposite edge of the lake it is worth visiting a picturesque Dębno Podhalańskie village. The church of St. Michael the Archangel that can be found here is a masterpiece from 1480, created by carpenter craftsmen. It is also one out of four wooden churches in Małopolska inscribed on the UNESCO list.
