Kazimierz Dolny, a small and peaceful town spectacularly located on the bank of the Vistula River, is a perfect place for a short getaway. Not only does Kazimierz offer a wide array of historic sights, but it is also one of the most enchanting tourist destinations in Poland. The unique architecture, rich cultural heritage and the abundance of delightful landscapes contribute to its inimitable atmosphere. All of the above has attracted many artists over the years and earned the town the title of a mecca of the art world. Art galleries and workshops are nothing but common here.
The picturesque market square with its antique tenement houses is the main attraction of Kazimierz Dolny. Located nearby are monuments such as the Parish church of St. Bartholomew and John the Baptist, St. Anne church and Holy Spirit hospital, church of St. Mary, ruins of the castle and the defensive tower. Several historic granaries can be found along the Vistula River. Distinct traces of Jewish culture can be found around Kazimierz. However, what really deserves the attention of sightseers is the system of gorges. This complex network provides a perfect opportunity to take a leisurely stroll around the entire town. Kazimierz Dolny is probably the only town in Poland, where the hustle of urban sprawl coexists so harmoniously with the peacefulness of nature.
For more demanding sightseers the town offers a vast range of tourist attractions that include leisure and party cruises on the Vistula, horse-drawn carriage rides or sleigh rides (in winter); off-road vehicle trips around the town and its environs; a ski station, XC skis and Melex electric vehicle trips around the town.
