Eagle’s Nest Trail is situated to the north from Krakow. There on large tall rocks and limestone cliffs you can see numerous mediaeval castles. King Kazimierz the Great built them in the XIV century to protect Polish borders.
In some places you will only find romantic ruins of mighty fortresses. But there are also several castles preserved in good shape. Moreover all of them are situated in picturesque Polish Jura Chain. Its limestone cliffs were shaped by the rivers into interesting shapes and charming valleys.
During Eagle’s Nest Trail we will visit also Ojcowski National Park. Because it covers the most interesting part of the trial with several caves and valley of the Prądnik River. There are two most interesting castles (Pieskowa Skała, Ojców) and the most famous monadnocks.
But apart from this part there are tens of other castles. Some of them are in ruine, some of them were rebuilt while some of them survived in good condition. We can organise this tour in many variants depending on your preferences. Do you want to hike and explore caves or would you rather focus on history and material monuments? We can also mix both aspects and additionally organise lunch break in a place where you can taste delicious trout. Everything is up to you but here you can see examplary plan
