The Kraków-Częstochowa Jura region is known as Polish Jurassic Highland, covering about a 160km span along the border of the Małopolska and Silesia provinces, is famous for a hilly landscape with Jurassic limestone rocks, cliffs, valleys and vast limestone formations, featuring some 220 caves and the wonderful world of old castles.
In the past the region was defended by countless castles and fortresses whose picturesque ruins – “Eagles Nests” – now are symbols of the region. The Trail of the Eagles’ Nests is named after a chain of 25 medieval castles, which were constructed by the order of King of Poland Kazimierz the Great. Among the most famous and interesting are Ojców, Pieskowa Skała, Rabsztyn, Bydlin, Smoleń, Pilica, Ogrodzieniec, Morsko, Bobolice, Mirów and Olsztyn.
