Cave Kielniki


The cave has been formed in the upper Jurassic limestone in the Kielniki quarry, near the Przymiłowice-Kotysów village. The cave was discovered at the beginning of the 1970s during the exploitation of the quarry. The cave extend along an longitudinal slot in an overall east-west orientation. Three distinguishable chambers were formed as a result of slides of rock blocks of various sizes. A number of interesting silicon nodules formed by water can be seen on the walls.

The “Kamieniołom Kielniki” geological path [blue signs] leads to the cave entrance. The route begins on ul. Kościelna [historic granary] – the location of the trail signboard.

Olsztyn
Olsztyn near Częstochowa is known primarily for the ruins of the once mighty castle - "Eagle's Nest" from the time of Casmir the Great. In this town of the Polish Jura there are other, perhaps less impressive, but also historic buildings. An eighteenth-century wooden granary at the northern foot of the fortress is impressive. It was moved to Olsztyn from the village of Borowno. Today, it houses a smart restaurant.
Olsztyn
The ruins of the castle in Olsztyn near Częstochowa are among the best-known strongholds of the Polish Jura. A cylindrical, 35- meter tall tower catches the eye from afar. It was built of white limestone, and overbuilt with brown bricks, like a mast of the ship floating in the rough sea. Indeed, the castle witnessed many dramatic events, including the assassination of Maciek Borkowic. From the mid-seventeenth century on, it was falling into disrepair. Eventually, it became a tourist attraction, lying on the popular Eagles’ Nests Trail.
Olsztyn
The present church of Saint John the Baptist in Olsztyn was built between 1722 and 1729. It is not the first on this site, but the second, or even the third. Before the today’s brick church was constructed, there had been a shrine made of wood, which burned down in the great fire of the village, in 1719. That building probably was from either 1529, or from 1600. (If it had been erected in 1600, it would have stood on the site of the church from 1529).
Olsztyn
The Moving Crib of the folk artist, Jan Wewiór,is called "Bethlehem under the thatch". Apart from the ruins of the fourteenth-century castle, it is another unique attraction of Olsztyn near Częstochowa. There are few such cribs in Poland! There are more than 800 pieces, of which nearly 350 are moving, and the work is still going on over the crib! The crib is exhibited in the nineteenthcentury cottage, lying on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.

W tej jurajskiej miejscowości nie brakuje jednak może mniej okazałych, ale również zabytkowych budowli.
