A trip to the Petrified City

A trip to the Petrified City

Only 18 km south of Tarnów lies the town of Tuchów, where you can find a Redemptorist monastery with a shrine of the Virgin Mary. 11 km further down the Biała river valley, you will see the village of Gromnik with its beautiful wooden church from 1727. The road along the river then leads to Ciężkowice. In this town, near the neo-Gothic church there is a market square surrounded by historic buildings from the 18th and 19th century, including arcaded wooden houses. Near Ciężkowice extends the reserve of the Petrified City, where you can see rocks in fanciful shapes reflected by their names, such as: the Witch, the Badger, the Pyramids, and the Town Hall. On the other side of the Biała river valley, hidden in a quiet park in Kąśna Dolna, you can find the manor house of Ignacy Paderewski, which currently houses a museum dedicated to the life of the famous pianist.
