Nearby

Żarki
To this day, Żarki, a town located in the Polish Jura, has retained an old charm of small towns. Żarki was granted town privileges at the turn of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Its urban layout with a centrally located, trapezoid marketplace and streets running out of its corners come from that time. An unusual element of the landscape of Żarki is stone barns standing in the eastern part of the town.
Żarki
The church of Saints Simon and Jude Thaddeus in Żarki was built in the early sixteenth century. In the early years of the eighteenth, it burned down, but was rebuilt (in a slightly amended form) thanks to the efforts of the Męciński family, the then owners. The church was again rebuilt in the years 1846-1847. Today, it is an Eclectic building with a tower covered with a Baroque dome. Inside, there is a Baroque high altar with the image of the Transfiguration.
Żarki
Żarki, a small town situated in the district of Myszków, is the seat of an urban-rural commune. The today's church of Saint Barbara is a building, which replaced a wooden chapel, standing here at least since the end of the sixteenth century. The walls of the church were built of broken limestone probably in the late seventeenth century. They are plastered today. Originally, it was an infirmary church. Inside, there are eighteenth-century furnishings with three altars.
Żarki
In the nineteenth century Żarki, a small town in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland was largely inhabited by Jews. The new synagogue, standing at the current Moniuszki Street, has been preserved to this day. It was erected in the Moorish-Romanesque style in the second half of the nineteenth. During the Second World War, it was devastated, but not destroyed. Today, it houses a cultural center
Żarki
In the small town of Żarki, located in the district of Myszków, in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, there is a unique group of dozens of historic barns. Built of limestone, the buildings lie in the eastern part of the town, close to the market popular across the region. They were built in the late 30s of the last century, on the site of the earlier wooden constructions, which had burned down in fires. In one of the barns a regular event called "Kupiecki Sąsiek”, which can be roughly translated as “merchant fair” is held.
Żarki
Żarki is a small town in the Polish Jura, where a large Jewish community lived for centuries. The early followers of the Jewish religion had come here as early as the Middle Ages. They left behind them only a memory and cemeteries. The best preserved graveyard is situated at Polna Street. There are about 700 tombstones on the cemetery. The oldest gravestones date from the first half of the nineteenth century. They are decorated with inscriptions and rarely seen, symbolic, imaginations.
