Discover the Wooden Architecture Route just a short distance from Krakow. Along 932 miles (1,500 km) you will find a collection of 200 structures including churches, belfries, granaries, cottages, and houses. Remarkably well-preserved, this region gives a fascinating glimpse into the local culture of Polish village life.
As the Polish saying goes: "Kazimierz the Great received a Poland made of wood but gave it back built of stone". This, fortunately, is not true for what concerns rural areas. Follow your guide and discover the gems of wooden architecture preserved in the Malopolska region. During the day you will visit selected sites located in the Kraków vicinity: the picturesque village of Lanckorona with romantic buildings situated around the market, a manor house in Stryszów located at the foot of Mount Chełm, and Wygiełzów Heritage Park, where you can find homesteads with orchards and floral gardens, as well as a church with a bell tower, all set in the beautiful countryside.
