Attractions

A six-day plan to explore Kazimierz Dolny prepared by the staff of Eger Residence

Day 1

HISTORICAL KAZIMIERZ

On the first day we invite you for a walk around historical part of Kazimierz Dolny.

We recommend:

  • Kazimierz Square with a well, Renaissance tenement houses
  • a parish church and nearby monastery.

Day 2

LANDSCAPES OF KAZIMIERZ

On the second day we invite you for another walk around Kazimierz Dolny. This time it will be about beautiful scenery.

We recommend:

  • walking along the Vistula promenade to see beautiful landscapes and old granaries,
  • watching Kazimierz from the Three Crosses Mountain, the bastion and surroundings of the castle.

Day 3

CLOSE TO NATURE

We recommend you to get to know the true wonder of nature, which can be found in Kazimierz and its surroundings - loess gorges.
Loess gorges are one of the biggest attractions associated with Kazimierz Dolny, and were created in this area due to the very high susceptibility of loess to erosive water effects. In the area of Kazimierz Dolny, the most picturesque gorge is Korzeniowy Dół (over 500 m long), which is not really a typical gorge, but a holweg, an anthropogenic form that owes its existence to human activity.
Nearby gorges can be visited on foot, but you can also go on an adrenaline-boosting, hour-long off-road car ride.

Day 4

EVEN SURROUNDINGS ARE BEAUTIFUL

On the fourth day of staying at our Residence we recommend a trip to Puławy located 15 km away and to nearby Mięcimierz.

Puławy

According to historical sources, at the end of the 15th century it was a fishing village operating crossing across the Vistula river. In 1731, Puławy became the property of the Czartoryski family for 100 years. At the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, Puławy waw a center of cultural and political life - the so-called Polish Athens - competing with the capital city. It was possible mainly thanks to Princess Izabella Czartoryska, founder of the first museum in Poland.

Mięćmierz

This medieval settlement where inhabitants were involved in rafting and fishing was turned into an almost live open-air museum. Unique wooden buildings, wooden or wicker fences give Mięćmierz an unusual character. Attention is also drawn to the historic windmill koźlak, or a cottage built of logs tied in a fish tail, moved here from the village of Młynki. From the viewpoint on the Albrechtówka, there is a beautiful view of the Vistula gorge with a nature reserve on Krowia Wyspa.

Day 5

JEWISH KAZIMIERZ

Kazimierz Dolny was associated with the Jewish population for many years. Walk along Czerniawa Street towards the town, on the right you will see the Jewish cemetery. The first cemetery was built in Kazimierz at Lubelska Street probably along with the constitution of the Jewish community. The cemetery was completely destroyed by Germans at the beginning of World War II. The second cemetery, established in 1851 at Czerniawy Street was destroyed in the same way. Destroyed and later acquired parts of Jewish tombstones were used as pavement. In the 1980s, a monument was created from the broken tombstones as the reminiscent of The Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. A "crying" monument lined with fragments of Jewish tombstones bursts in the middle symbolizing the tragic fate of Polish and Kazimierz Jews.

Day 6

LITERARY KAZIMIERZ DOLNY

Did you know that one of the famous Polish writers shared a bond with Kazimierz?

A walk to the house of Maria and Jerzy Kuncewicz.

The House of Maria and Jerzy Kuncewicz, also known as Kuncewiczówka Villa "Pod Wiewiórka" - the residence of the Kuncewicz family - was built in 1936. It was designed by Karol Siciński, who mainly shaped post-war Kazimierz.
Villa was made from local building material that is from limestone rock with wooden finishes, covered with shingled roof. The building is surrounded by a beautiful, large garden. Currently the house belongs the Vistula River Museum. There are meetings and cultural events, mainly literary ones, and the permanent exhibition is a memory of life and work of the outstanding Polish writer Maria Kuncewiczowa and her husband Jerzy.
