A trip to Kraków Valleys Landscape Park

A trip to Kraków Valleys Landscape Park

Many attractive landscapes can be found in the vicinity of Krzeszowice, a town 25 km west of Kraków. When you go in this direction, it is worth seeing at least one of a few gorges called Dolinki Krakowskie (Kraków Valleys). They are a protected as part of Kraków Valleys Landscape Park. You can take a walk in the forested Kluczwody Valley with ruins of the knight’s castle and see an impressive rock gate at the end of the Bolechowicki Gorge. In the Kobylańska Valley you can admire numerous crags, walls and limestone ridges, and in the long Będkowska Valley, among other things, a wall of Sokolica peak and a real karst spring. Nearby Krzeszowice, beech woods of the Eliaszówka Valley hide a precious Baroque monument: the 17th century monastery of the Carmelites in Czerna village. In neighbouring Paczółtowice there is a beautiful small wooden church from the beginning of the 16th century. There you can also find a large golf course Krakow Valley Golf. Instead of playing golf you can ski here in winter and enjoy horse riding or a shooting range all year long. South of Krzeszowice, behind a strip of vast woods, there are magnificent ruins of Tęczyn Castle located on a dormant volcano. Other attractions of the Tenczyński Ridge include the rocky Mnikowski gorge and the Zimny Dół nature reserve.
