1 Review
Ojców National Park (Ojcowski Park Narodowy)
One of the smallest national parks in Poland, Ojcow National Park (Ojcowski Park Narodowy) covers just 8.3 square miles (21.5 square kilometers), making it convenient to discover its plentiful attractions on foot. The park has more than 400 caves to explore, as well as two medieval castle ruins, the Club of Hercules rock formation, and a chapel on the water.

The Basics
Roughly 30 minutes north of Krakow by car, Ojcow National Park is typically included in full-day private sightseeing tours from Krakow. Learn about local legends, such as King Lokietek’s Cave (allegedly the Polish king used the cave as a shelter and hiding place); see the Renaissance castle Pieskowa Skala and Ojcow Castle; and discover the rock formations, forests, rivers, and local wildlife that make up the park. Most tours include round-trip transportation from Krakow hotels.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Ojcow National Park is a great choice for nature lovers.
  • Wear comfortable shoes for walking through the park.
  • Bring binoculars to spot the park’s woodpeckers, kingfishers, owls, and hawks.
  • Parts of the park are accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
Ojcow is about a 30-minute drive from Krakow, though the unfamiliar roads can be tricky without a good map. Alternatively, you can hire a bike and enjoy a scenic route along the Vistula river, or catch a bus from Ogrodowa 4 (next to Galeria Krakowska).

When to Get There
Ojcow National Park is open year-round. The busiest and hottest months are typically July and August, so if you want to avoid the crowds and the heat, visit in spring or fall. September is a beautiful month in the park, as it’s cooler and quieter, and the leaves are starting to turn red and gold.

Hiking in Ojcow National Park

Ojców offers several hiking trails—the red route, blue route, and yellow route. All routes are easy to follow and are for different abilities. Top highlights along the trails include Pieskowa Skala castle, the remains of Kazimierz Castle, and the park’s many caves.
