Weekend around Tarnów

Weekend around Tarnów

Day trips from Tarnów offer many marvellous buildings and monuments. In the Petrified City you can find original sandstone monadnocks, formed in various shapes as a result of erosion. Not far from Tarnów, along the Dunajec valley, you can find picturesquely situated mountain lakes – Czchowskie and Rożnowskie (described in the section on weekend trips from Nowy Sącz). There are several spots along the bank which have been adapted for swimmers. You can also hire water sports equipment. As for the original historic buildings around Tarnów, one has to mention the late-Gothic church in Dębno, as well as the magnificent aristocratic residence in Nowy Wiśnicz, which was built at the turn of the 17th century. Bochnia boasts the oldest Polish salt mine (even older than the one in Wieliczka), whereas in Lipnica Murowana you can visit a UNESCO-listed wooden church. Of tourist interest is also Zalipie, with its living folk tradition and flower-patterned houses and furniture.
