The tourist triangle: Kazimierz Dolny, Puławy, Nałęczów

Kazimierz Dolny – one of the oldest towns of the Lublin Region located on the eastern bank of the Vistula river. The history of the town dates back to the 11th century, when Polish prince Casimir II the Just established hear a first settlement. King Casimir III the Great granted the town rights at the beginning of the 14th century. The castle and defensive tower, guarding the passage across the Vistula, date to that time. The two structures, together with renaissance parish church, the Market Square surrounded by richly decorated merchant houses and the Franciscan closter, make up the main scenic axis of the town, parallel of the bed of the Vistula, which cuts a spectacular gorge in this area.

Puławy – the town famous for its classicist-romantic palace and park complex of the Czartoryski family (18th-19th centuries). On a high escarpment over the Vistula, Prince Adam Czartoryski with his wife Izabela née Fleming created an original settlement composed of structures in the spirit of the antique. Two hundred years ago Izabela set up here the first Polish museum. The romantic character of the settlement is completed by English landscape garden.

Nałęczów – the health resort, specialising in heart and circulatory system diseases. The healing properties of local waters discovered in 1817. At the end of the 19th century it was already a well-known resort, patronised by the most eminent Polish writers: Henryk Sienkiewicz, Bolesław Prus and Stefan Żeromski. Nałęczów is a garden town with a large park, situated amid wooded ravines, with beautiful spa-style villas. The resort offers modern swimming-pool recreation and hydrotherapy centres.
