Szczekociny is a small town situated on the north-eastern edge of the Silesian Voivodeship. The town may boast of the city rights, which were granted as early as the end of the Middle Ages, as an important settlement at the ford across the Pilica river. The traditional center of the town is the four-sided market square with a network of streets. To the east of the market one can seethe beautiful Baroque palace of the Dembiński family. They were the owners, who contributed to the development of the town and neatening its appearance.
The church of Saint Bartholomew in Szczekociny was built around the midseventeenth century and consecrated in 1666. In the years 1780-1782, the church was rebuilt at the request of Urszula Morsztyn Dembińska. The design was probably made by Ferdynand Jan Nax of Gdańsk. The shrine received the Classicist look. Two towers of the façade merit our attention. The interior is decorated in the Baroque and neo-Classicist styles.
The palace of Szczekociny, which for a long time has been in poor condition, is a first-class monument. It is part of one of Poland's most beautiful palace and park complexes. The early-Classicist building was erected for Franciszek and Urszula Morsztyn Dembiński about 1770. It is said that a ghost of beautiful Urszula can be seen within the walls of the Szczekocin palace in July evenings
The Pilica river is the longest tributary of the Vistula. It is 319 km long. The river flows through the southern and central Poland, starting from the Polish Jura, and then crossing the plains of central Poland and Mazovia. The river with an average water level is usually suited for kayaking along the section from Szczekociny. One can take part in whitewater rafting organized by the Volunteer Fire Department, or by the specialist or rental companies.
