The Little Dog's Rock Castle

We invite you on the unconventional tour to the Pieskowa Skala in Krakow. One of our main goal is to show you this unique place, which is strongly connected with the cultural, natural and historical heritage of this region. The smallest of the Polish National Parks, has an immense natural wealth. Unusual rock formations and varied terrain give the place a picturesque character. The road along the Prądnik valley is rated as one of the most charming in Poland. It winds between rock blocks, mills, historic buildings, monastery, chapel on the water, etc. In the centre of this land there are ruins of the medieval "Casimir" Castle which was then a fortified castle. Acclaimed as the Pearl of the Polish Renaissance, the Little Dog's Rock Castle along with the rock Hercules' Club form a perfect view. The castle was used repeatedly in many films. During the tour, we will be able to visit an exhibition called "Stylish changes in the history of European art" which will bring us closer to the subject of the stormy fate of Pieskowa Skala.
