Undoubtedly, it is one of the most beautiful monuments on the Trail of Eagles' Nests. A monumental castle building lies on a hill. For some its shape resembles a boat. In spite of many years of being in ruins it is still fairly impressive. The Mirowska fortress is one of the oldest fortifications of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland. We know that a stone watchtower was erected in the mid-fourteenth century, during the reign of Casimir the Great.
The Bobolice castle is located on a picturesque, rocky
hill. It is one of the most famous fortresses lying along
the Trail of the Eagles' Nests, in the center of the
Kraków-Częstochowa Upland. The castle is situated less
than a half hour walk from the twin fortress in Mirów.
There are also trails for longer hikes towards the area of
the Rzędkowice and Kroczycze Rocks and other
attractive places in the Upland. The castle is an example
of the building which after centuries of being a ruin was
rebuilt in modern times.
Łutowiec is an inconspicuous village (formerly known as
Oltowiec or Holtowiec). It is an old village, mentioned for the
first time at the end of the fourteenth century. A medieval
watchtower, of which remains have been preserved on one of
the rock outcroppings, is one of the most mysterious objects
of this kind in the Jura. It was probably founded in the
fourteenth century, but already in the next century, it became
abandoned and was beginning to fall into ruin.
In the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, there are numerous graves of soldiers from WW1 of the three clashing armies: the German, Austro-Hungarian and Russian. The first well-maintained war cemeteries were established already in the years 1917-1918. The largest necropolis can be found in a small village near Żarki - Kotowice. 1500 soldiers from all the fighting army, mostly Russians, Austrians and Germans are buried here.
