Ojcowski National Park
If you’re keen to escape the buzz of the city for a spell, the Ojcow National Park could be just what’s needed. It’s the smallest national park in all of Poland, and sits a mere 20 minutes or so north of the main town. What awaits is a curious series of deep gorges and valleys dressed in oak and beech woodlands. Now and then, the landscapes are punctuated by huge karst rocks that loom overhead, like the 25-meter-high Club of Hercules. The remains of Ojcow Castle keep watch: a 14th-century gatehouse and tower that look like something plucked straight out of Dracula.
