“Suchy Połeć”, which can roughly be
translated as “Big Piece of Bacon”, also called
“Suchy Palec” – “Dry Finger”, is a distinctive
rock formation near the center of Podzamcze.
In this region, there are German bunkers from
the Second World War. They were part of the
so called Ostwall, a fortification line whose
task was to prevent the Red Army from
invading the areas of Upper Silesia. Although
the Soviet-German fighting in the nearby
areas was fierce, the bunkers themselves did
not play a bigger role, however.
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.
Mount Birów rises 461 m above sea level. It is one of the characteristic hills in the area of Podzamcze and Ogrodzieniec. The picturesque rocky hill with a good view on the surrounding area was already a site the Neolithic settlement. Especially, the top parts of the hill, which form a depression surrounded by limestone outcrops, have important defensive qualities. Today, we can see a reconstruction of the Slavic settlement here.
Góra Birów, wznosząca się 461 m n.p.m., stanowi jedno z charakterystycznych wzniesień w rejonie Podzamcza i Ogrodzieńca. Skaliste, malownicze wzgórze, dające dobry widok na okolicę było już od czasów neolitu miejscem osadnictwa. Szczególnie partie wierzchołkowe wzniesienia, tworzące nieckę otoczoną wapiennymi ostańcami, dodawały temu miejscu istotnych walorów obronnych. Obecnie możemy tu oglądać rekonstrukcję grodziska słowiańskiego.
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.
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.
