Here, witness imposing walls and a fortified tower while enjoying spectacular views of the surrounding mountain landscape and listening to some thrilling legends and stories.

Next, make your way to Krzeszów Abbey, also known as the Silesian pearl of Baroque. Be amazed by the wealth of the Cistercians as you visit 2 breathtaking churches.
