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.
The Jewish cemetery in Sławków was founded in the early twentieth century on the road leading from the town to the village of Krzykawka. The necropolis is located approximately 2.5 km from the Sławków market square. About 300 graves have been preserved to this day. The oldest dates from 1904 and belongs to Rywka, a daughter of Awraham Helpner. After the recent administrative changes cemetery is located in the commune of Boleslaw, at 72 Podgórska Street.
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.
One of the monuments in Sławków is a parish church, dating from the thirteenth century. It is dedicated both to the Exaltation of the Cross and Saint Nicholas, but originally its patron saint was John the Baptist The church is an early Gothic building, and its equipment is mostly Baroque and Rococo. The attic of the building is home to bats, forming one of the largest colonies in Poland.
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.
