The Ryczów Rocky Region is an invented name, coined
by tourists and climbers to identify attractive and scenic
areas of many limestone outcroppings. The area is
located near the villages of Ryczów and Żelazko, in the
Polish Jura. There are several characteristic, jagged
rocks, attracting lovers of nature and extensive views, as
well as rock climbers, climbing happily the local walls.
Ryczów lies in the commune of Ogrodzieniec, in the district
of Zawiercie. Among the fans of the Polish Jura, the village is
known primarily for the ruins of the local fortified
watchtower. It may have been built, like many other
buildings of this type in the Jura, by Casimir the Great, in the
fourteenth century, in order to strengthen the border of the
Polish Kingdom at that time. Though some doubt that this
king erected the stronghold.
