"Bąkowiec" Castle


The ruins of the knight castle "Bąkowiec" from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries are located within the area of the holiday resort "Morsko", near the village of the same name. Next to the castle there are the two most important hiking trails of the Polish Jura – the red Trail of the Eagles' Nests and the blue Trail of the Jurassic Strongholds. A trip to the ruins of the castle can be combined with a visit to the nearby Rzędkowice and the Kroczyce Rocks.

Zawiercie
The church of the Holy Trinity and and St Florian in Zawiercie Skarżyce is one of the parish churches in Zawiercie. It is a distinctive consrtuction with three chapes in the form of a rotunda, which symbolize the Holy Trinity. In 1999, the church was raised by archbishop Stanisław Nowak, metropolitan bishop of Częstochowa, to the rank of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Skarżyce.
Kroczyce
The beginnings of the parish in Kroczyce date back (according to written documents) to the twelfth century. Before the erection of the present brick church, there were two successive wooden churches here (though their history is not well known). One was destroyed by a fire. The other wooden building was founded by Piotr Firlej in 1427 as a votive foundation for the safe return after the Battle of Grunewald in 1410. The present church comes from the nineteenth century.
Włodowice
In 1914, at the beginning of the bloody First World War, the area of the Polish Jura became the scene of a particularly fierce fighting of the allied German and Austro-Hungarian army against the Russians. Only in November 1914, around 70,000 German and Austrian soldiers were killed. The dead were buried in special military cemeteries, one of which we can see in Włodowice near Zawiercie.
Włodowice
Włodowice is both a village and the seat of the commune in the district of Zawiercie. There is a ruined chateau from the second half of the seventeenth century built by Stanisław Warszycki, Castellan of Kraków, and a very colorful character, famous for its numerous scandals. The mansion hosted, inter alia, Jan III Sobieski. It was repeatedly rebuilt in the following centuries. Unfortunately, the twentieth-century fires and neglect during the communist regime contributed significantly to its ruin.
Włodowice
Włodowice, leżące na Wyżynie Krakowsko-Częstochowskiej, w powiecie zawierciańskim, to stara miejscowość - wzmiankowana już w 1220 r. Przez niemal pięć wieków posiadała prawa miejskie, które otrzymała w 1386 r., zaś utraciła w wyniku rosyjskich represji po powstaniu styczniowym. Obok zrujnowanego, XVII-wiecznego pałacu, w miejscowości wart obejrzenia jest kościół św. Bartłomieja, który wzniesiony został na początku XVIII w.
