Kazimierz Dolny

Overview

Introduction

Located on the banks of the Vistula 57 mi/92 km southeast of Warsaw, Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, is one of the country's most charming towns and a favorite of Poles. It was never scarred with ugly Soviet-style buildings (which makes it a popular movie location).

Start your stroll at the main square, which is lined with stunning Renaissance houses. Then head to the 16th-century Reformed Franciscan church (Kosciol Reformatow) and finish at the ruins of the 14th-century castle that overlooks the city.

The town can be visited on a day trip from Warsaw or en route from Warsaw to Krakow. It's surrounded by walking trails—ask at the PTTK office (located on the main square) for a trail map of Kazimierz Park. In late June, the city hosts an important fair of popular art, with the best folk groups of Poland performing.
