Ojców National Park - Pieskowa Skała Castle - Wieliczka Salt Mine.
A trip to visit the jurassic landscapes of Ojców National Park, crowned with an unforgettable dinner held in the underground chambers of the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Pieskowa Skała (Pieskowa Rock), first mentioned before 1315 as "castrum Peskenstein", is located in the valley of river Prądnik, 27 km north of Kraków, within the boundaries of the Ojców National Park. Pieskowa Skała is famous for its Renaissance castle built by King Kazimierz Wielki in the 1st half of the 14th century as part of the defensive chain of castles called Orle Gniazda (Eagles Nests)

The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most valuable cultural monuments in Poland, visited each year by over a million tourists from around the world. It is also a world class historical monument and as such is inscribed in UNESCO's First World List of Cultural and Natural Heritage.
