Most of the objects known as the Eagles ' nests was founded during the reign of Casimir the great. The castles were to guard the border of the Kingdom of Poland and its capital, Crakov, mainly against the onslaught of the Czechs from Silesia. Today, most of the fortress is in ruins. The originator of the wyznakowania trail to the main attractions of the Krakowsko-Częstochowska in the interwar years was Stanislaw Leszczycki, while route design similar to the present and linking Cracov with Częstochowa introduced after World War II known tourism promoter Prof. Kazimierz Sosnowski (1875-1954). The stretch between Smoleniem and Częstochowa trail is within the limits of the Silesian Voivodeship. The main attractions in this episode include natural oddities.
