Udórz
Although not much has been preserved of the old, medieval castle of Udórz, it is undoubtedly one of the most mysterious places of the Polish Jura. The crumbled parts of the walls, beautifully situated in the forest, are a remnant of the building whose origin and founder remain a matter for conjecture. Studies have shown the castle was probably not completed and the work on the construction was interrupted.
Udórz
In Udórz, a village north of Wolbrom (near the border of the provinces of Silesia and Lesser Poland), there is a monument to the soldiers of the battalion "Umbrella” of the Home Army, who perished July 11, 1944, during the retreat from Kraków, after a failed assassination attempt on Wilhelm Koppe, a higher commander of the SS and the Police in the General Government. Two soldiers were killed in action. Three wounded were murdered a few days later in Kraków, after a brutal interrogation.
Wola Libertowska
Wola Libertowska lies in the district of Zawiercie, in the commune of Żarnowiec. Here, Antoni Toborowicz, a sculptor, has his own gallery. The building was constructed with both stones from nearby fields and the old floor of the church in Miechów and even stone fragments that once had been used to build the castle in Żarnowiec. The artist, who in addition to sculpture, also designs interiors of churches, founded the private Museum of Crosses and Chapels.
Wierbka
The village of Wierbka lies in the commune of Pilica, in the district of Zawiercie. The German family of the Moes came here in the mid-nineteenth century. They contributed to the development of the surrounding area, and in 1880, they built an Eclectic palace. It was taken from the owners in in 1945, and later, at the end of the communist regime, it burned down and has henceforth been in ruins. The remains of the palace park with old trees testify to the former glory of the property.
Żarnowiec
Żarnowiec lies on the Pilica river, in the north-eastern part of Silesia. This place has a very interesting history. The present-day village was once a town until the Russian repression after the January Uprising. Żarnowiec is also an example of “a wandering settlement”, which changed its location in the fourteenth century. Its urban layout comes from the time, when it was founded again as a town by Casimir the Great.
