The Eagles' Nests Landscape Park


The Eagles' Nests Landscape Park is one of the interesting most protected areas of Silesia (part of the park is also located in the province of Lesser Poland), and at the same time, it is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Poland. The park, which covers the central part of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, has valuable natural objects, as well as many historical sites. The park's name comes from the majestic castles erected on limestone rocks called Eagles’ Nests. The area is crisscrossed with a dense network of hiking trails.

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
In Podzamcze, on the road leading from Ogrodzieniec to Pilica, in a charming place, there is one of the Marian shrines. In this place, the cult of the Mother of God goes back to the first half of the nineteenth century, when Saint Mary appeared on the rock to one of the local residents. The chapel itself is a new object and dates back to 2000. The solemn ceremony of the foundation of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rock climbing took place in 2002.
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
“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.
Ryczów
Ryczów lies in the commune of Ogrodzieniec, in the district of Zawiercie. Among the fans of the Polish Jura, the village is known primarily for the ruins of the local fortified watchtower. It may have been built, like many other buildings of this type in the Jura, by Casimir the Great, in the fourteenth century, in order to strengthen the border of the Polish Kingdom at that time. Though some doubt that this king erected the stronghold.
