Ruins of the medieval castle in Ojcow
The ruins of the Ojców Castle erected in the 14th century: Gothic gate, octagonal tower.
The Chapel on the water
The chapel was constructed directly above the waters on the Prądnik River. Chapel of St. Joseph the Craftsman built in 1901 from converted spa baths. The setting up of the chapel on water is traditionally linked to an edict of Tsar Nicholas II forbidding the building of sacred buildings on Ojców land – hence the cunning ploy of the residents in placing it “on water”. The interior contains three altars shaped like the gable walls of peasant dwellings.
Pieskowa Skała (Pieskowa Rock)- The Fortified Castle
Pieskowa Skała Castle called a "Pearl of the Polish Renaissance". The fortified building was erected in the 14th century by Casimir the Great as part of a defensive chain of castles known as the Eagles' Nests. The castle is located on a cliff above the Pradnik River. Nowadays, this restored pearl of the Polish Renaissance houses a branch of the Wawel State Art Collection.
