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.
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.
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.
Smoleń
The village of Smoleń lies in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, on the eastern edge of Silesia, near the village of Pilica. Smoleń is known primarily for the castle, which, although much ruined, is one of the most picturesque and attractive fortresses located on the Eagles' Nests Trail. Its tower dominating over the forest is the landmark of the local landscape. The castle is situated with the area of the nature reserve also called Smoleń.
