The Ruins of the Watchtower in Przewodziszowice


Near the village of Przewodziszowice in the Polish Jura, there are ruins of one of the smaller Eagles' Nests. The local defense watchtower was built probably in the fourteenth or the late fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The builder of the watch tower was either King Casimir the Great or Duke Ladislaus of Opole. For some time in the fifteenth century, it became a property of knight-robber Kornicz called Siestrzeniec, who according to a legend, hid the stolen treasures here.i

Żarki
In the small town of Żarki, located in the district of Myszków, in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, there is a unique group of dozens of historic barns. Built of limestone, the buildings lie in the eastern part of the town, close to the market popular across the region. They were built in the late 30s of the last century, on the site of the earlier wooden constructions, which had burned down in fires. In one of the barns a regular event called "Kupiecki Sąsiek”, which can be roughly translated as “merchant fair” is held.
Żarki
Żarki is a small town in the Polish Jura, where a large Jewish community lived for centuries. The early followers of the Jewish religion had come here as early as the Middle Ages. They left behind them only a memory and cemeteries. The best preserved graveyard is situated at Polna Street. There are about 700 tombstones on the cemetery. The oldest gravestones date from the first half of the nineteenth century. They are decorated with inscriptions and rarely seen, symbolic, imaginations.
