    Pieskowa Skała is a castle in Sułoszowa on a striking Jura rock on the left bank of the Prądnik River, in the Ojców National Park in the Kraków-Częstochowa Jura, about 25 kilometers northwest of Kraków in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship in Poland.The first mention of a Peskenstein castle [1] is in a document from the Polish Princeps Ladislaus I. Ellenlang from 1315, but it was probably a castle of Duke Heinrich the Bearded at another location in Sułoszowa. [2] At its current location, Pieskowa Skała was built in the 14th century by King Casimir the Great as a fortified castle and was then a link in a chain of castles (Eagle's Nest castles) that spanned both the border of the Kingdom of Poland to neighboring Silesia and the important trade route from Kraków Olkusz and Beuthen to Breslau (Via Regia) should protect. This had become necessary because Silesia had come under the rule of Bohemia, with whose rulers the Polish kings were in conflict. Source: Wikipedia

  • The renovated castle is open to the public. Mandatory point. I recommend booking in advance with a guide.
