Swietokrzyskie Mountains are the oldest mountains in Poland (and one of the few in Europe). No wonder there was a lot of geological discoveries here. This region is full of unique geological formations (stone runs and mushroom rocks – in the Piekło Nieklanskie Reserve) and empty picturesque mines. You can also see the footprints of the prehistoric animals that lived in the area many million years ago.
There are nature and geological reserves, woodlands and nature’s monuments, waiting for you to discover.. You can visit the famous 7000 years old Bartek Oak Tree. There are many wild animals in the forests (deer, elk, moose, hare and fox) as well as a vast array of protected species of plants.
One of the attractions of historical value is the magical and mysterious Lysa Gora (the Bold Mountain) – once a place of the pagan worship of our ancient ancestors and today the most popular monastery in Poland. You can see the relics of the Holy Cross brought there by the Prince Emeryk during the rule of king Boleslaw Chrobry.
