Your experience


  • See four places in one day
  • Learn insider knowledge about Polish history and culture
  • Enjoy picturesque views over Poland's south


Ciężkowice, Bobowa, Stróże and Grybów - four Polish towns that have their origins in the Middle Ages. On the green slopes, huts and farmhouses are spread out, converging into small valleys. Traditional churches, made of wood or stone, old villas hidden in extensive parks and military souvenirs are not uncommon in this region in southern Poland.

Your tour starts with the transfer from Tarnów to Ciężkowice. Here you can stroll over the small market and visit the national nature reserve "Dead Town", where you can admire an extraordinary rock formation. You can also marvel at the magnificent estate of the Polish composer, politician and freedom fighter Ignacy Jan Paderewski.

The tour continues with a stop at the observation tower in Bruśnik. The platform, built in 2013, allows you a wide view over the landscape in any direction at a height of 18 metres. The next target is called Bobowa. Follow in the footsteps of this small town with a visit to the 15th century St. Sophia church or the Jewish synagogue. The leisure activities are entirely up to you.

Then your guide will take you to Stróże, a place with an exceptionally large train station. It recalls the military importance in May 1915, when countless armies passed through the village on their way to the Eastern Front. The open air museum offers a good opportunity for a lunch break.

On the way to Grybów the green hills turn into dark mountains covered with dense forests. Grybów is a small town directly on the Bialka River. Visit the Grybów Parish Museum with its unique exhibition "Saints of the West - Saints of the East". Local art shows how three different cultures and religions come together in this place: Jews, Orthodox Lemkos and Polish Catholics. The cosy market place reminds of the 14th century, when the town was founded. For a long time the place was very attractive for market people, craftsmen and farmers, as it was free from direct control by state and church. Immerse yourself in Polish history for a day!
