Kazimierz Dolny. It was already founded in the eleventh century, which is earlier than the nearby Lublin but since then, despite the passage of years - maintains the size of the same level of 3000 inhabitants. Plus 3,000 visitors each day. The whole Kazimierz is a monument. Starting from the pavement on the Marketplace, through stairs, houses and ending with antique sellers and their antique paintings that nobody buys... Entire Kazimierz lives from tourism. Tourists are divided into two groups: the rich inhabitants of Warsaw and Kraków drinking cold beer on the market cafes and others, drinking free water from the well.
Church of St. John the Baptist and St. Bartholomew the Apostle. To this day preserved are fragments of the first building from the fourteenth century, although the whole dates back to the seventeenth century. Extremely interesting inside the church is: Renaissance Venetian font from the sixteenth century, wooden door from 1700, the main chandelier with deer antlers from the seventeenth century (animal hunted by King Casimir the Great, and donated to the church), Rococo tabernacle on the main altar from the eighteenth century and the oldest extant today in Poland pipe organs. Built from 1620 consist of more than 1,400 pipes and air pumps to them 8 bellows. Switching sounds is made manually using a metal rods. Then organist resembles a construction crane operator more than musician. For this reason, during fluent performance, switching of the sounds can be done only with the help of another person. The instrument is used during Mass and summer organ concerts (Saturday and Sunday at 7.30 p.m.).
Townhouses on the Marketplace in Przybyłów. This one on the left side that once belonged to a wealthy cereal merchant Mikołaj Przybył, has name from St. Nicholas and between the windows on the first floor is decorated with a statue of the patron saint. Townhouse on the right, which belongs to the second of the brothers - Krzysztof Przybył has name from St. Christopher and represents the patron saint of carrying the Christ on the shoulder through a river (also he holds in the hand a tree!). On the facade of houses, you can find plenty of other plant, animal, biblical and mythological motifs. The richness of ornamentation was undoubtedly caused the wealth of investors and workability of a material used to build the house.
Castle in Kazimierz Dolny. Built from the thirteenth century it fulfilled functions of prison, river lighthouse and seat of customs guard. According to legend - from the castle on the hill, Polish King Casimir the Great stole out of there by underground corridor for secret tryst with the loveliest Jewess Esterka.
