The Canoeing Trip down the Biała Przemsza River


The Biała Przemsza river is considered a tributary of the Przemsza. It is the most important river of Zagłębie Dąbrowskie. Already in the interwar years, its scenic and tourism qualities were appreciated. The river flows through the areas of the Błędowska Desert, but the most interesting section is in the vicinity of Okradzionowa, popularly known as Switzerland of Zagłębie. Kayakers cover mostly the stretch from Sławków to Sosnowiec.

Sławków
Sławków is a city situated on the eastern edge of the Silesian Voivodeship. Its almost 1000-year-old history has endowed the town with a number of interesting monuments, with its famous Sławków Tavern in the fore-front. Not far from the market square, you can see ruins of the castle of the bishops of Kraków and the bishop’s granary, also known as the Bishop's Court. The current shape of the granary dates back to the eighteenth century. The building has a distinctive, nice mansard roof and thick walls.

In addition to the separately standing monument facilities in Sławków, a spatial layout of the old town, with a central market square (114x114m), is listed in the Register of Historic Monuments. The urban layout has survived largely unchanged since the Middle Ages - with the exception of two streets running out to the south, which are narrower as a result of the building activities. Sławków has retained some interesting historic buildings, which include a tavern, a well and a few arcade houses.
Sławków
The Sławków synagogue was built in 1896. It served the local Jewish community until 1939. During the Second World War, the synagogue was devastated. The Germans converted it into a storehouse. After the war, it stood deserted, but it was renovated, and for some time, it was a cultural center. Currently, there are homes here. The red brick building was erected on a rectangular plan. The main prayer hall was located in the eastern part of the site. The inscription in Polish and Hebrew placed on the building reminds of its former function.
Sławków
Sławków Castle is now actually dilapidated. It is situated on a hill over the Biała Pszemsza. It was a thirteenth-century stronghold, which belonged to the bishops of Cracow. Its task was to protect access to the town from the direction of Cracow. In 1983-1990, the excavations were conducted on the castle hill called Zamczysko. They uncovered the ruins, and as a result, an archaeological reserve was established here.
