The Church of the Transfiguration in Ogrodzieniec


The present church of the Transfiguration in Ogrodzieniec, stands on the site of a former wooden shrine of Saint Lawrence (which existed here since the Middle Ages to the mideighteenth century). The church was under construction off and on since the 50s of the eighteenth century. The last stages of the construction fell on the years between 1783 and 1787, when the owner of Ogrodzieniec was Jan Józef Jakliński. The church combines the late Baroque and neo-Classicist styles. The brick building has a lofty tower.

Ogrodzieniec
Ogrodzieniec is a small town whose origins date back to the Middle Ages. For centuries, it was developing in the shadow of the mighty castle "Ogrodzieniec", standing on the top of the Jurassic hill called Mount Janowski. The modern town center is located in the vicinity of Plac Wolności (Freedom Square), while the former marketplace is today’s Pilsudski Square, where there is the much rebuilt edifice, which once housed the town hall, and in its vicinity - a historic church.
Podzamcze
You can learn about the castles and forts of the Polish Jura in just several minutes in the Miniature Park Ogrodzieniec! With great care and knowledge, 16 fortresses along the Eagles’ Nests Trail have been reconstructed here. In a picturesque setting, at the foot of the ruins of the castle of Ogrodzieniec, miniature castles from the period of their greatest prosperity have been recreated, preserving the natural environment of each of the buildings. There are also medieval siege machines, and recently - a replica of the monastery of Jasna Góra.
Podzamcze
Ogrodzieniec Castle is the largest castle of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland and, undoubtedly, one the most beautiful castles in Poland. It is located on Mount Janowski at the heart of the Upland. Fantastic rock formations, which were used to construct the castle, make the majestic ruins even more picturesque. The castle is situated in the central part of the Polish Jura and it is easy to get there. The red marked Eagles' Nests Trail runs nearby.
Podzamcze
“Suchy Połeć”, which can roughly be translated as “Big Piece of Bacon”, also called “Suchy Palec” – “Dry Finger”, is a distinctive rock formation near the center of Podzamcze. In this region, there are German bunkers from the Second World War. They were part of the so called Ostwall, a fortification line whose task was to prevent the Red Army from invading the areas of Upper Silesia. Although the Soviet-German fighting in the nearby areas was fierce, the bunkers themselves did not play a bigger role, however.
