You can learn about the castles and forts of the Polish Jura in just several minutes in the Miniature Park Ogrodzieniec! With great care and knowledge, 16 fortresses along the Eagles’ Nests Trail have been reconstructed here. In a picturesque setting, at the foot of the ruins of the castle of Ogrodzieniec, miniature castles from the period of their greatest prosperity have been recreated, preserving the natural environment of each of the buildings. There are also medieval siege machines, and recently - a replica of the monastery of Jasna Góra.
Active recreation with a big dose of thrill has recently become fashionable. The rope park "AdrenaLinaPark" in Podzamcze provides such entertainment. It is one of the first rope parks in the Jura. There are two routes of varying difficulty, and an amazing 140-meter downhill slide called "Tyrolka". An additional attraction is the location of the Park near the picturesque ruins of Ogrodzieniec castle.
While in Podzamcze and visiting the famous ruins of Ogrodzieniec Castle, you should also take some time to visit other sights located in the area of Mount Janowski. One of them is a cluster of several very picturesque fantastically shaped outcrops, which extend in the immediate vicinity of the castle ruins. The local rocks are very popular among rock climbers, who use the climbing routes of varying degrees of difficulty.
Będąc w Podzamczu i zwiedzając słynne ruiny Zamku Ogrodzieniec, warto także poświęcić nieco czasu na zwiedzenie innych osobliwości leżących w rejonie Góry Janowskiego. Należy do nich skupisko kilkunastu bardzo malowniczych ostańców skalnych o fantastycznych kształtach, rozciągające się w bezpośredniej bliskości zamkowych ruin. Tutejsze skałki cieszą się dużą popularnością wśród wspinaczy, którzy pokonują tu drogi wspinaczkowe o różnych stopniach trudności.
In Podzamcze, on the road leading from Ogrodzieniec to Pilica, in a charming place, there is one of the Marian shrines. In this place, the cult of the Mother of God goes back to the first half of the nineteenth century, when Saint Mary appeared on the rock to one of the local residents. The chapel itself is a new object and dates back to 2000. The solemn ceremony of the foundation of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rock climbing took place in 2002.
