Touristic attractions of the region
Świętokrzyski region is located between the rivers of Vistula and Pilica, and its heart is occupied by Świętokrzyskie Mountains – the oldest mountain range in Poland (along with Sudetes range). Its highest peak, Łysica, is 612 metres tall and lies within the Łysogóry range.
Łysogóry form the Świętokrzyski National Park and, as such, it is the region under protection.
We recommend our guests to visit:
Bałtów Jura Park, where one may admire real-size dinosaur models.
