ZŁOTY POTOK -RACZYŃSKI PALACE - KRASIŃSKI MANOR - BEAR CAVE - ZYGMUNT AND ELŻBIETA SOURCES - PARK RESERVE - MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM POND - THE OLDEST IN EUROPE TROUT HATCHERY
Złoty Potok- Fairytale land full of picturesque monadnocks, caves, springs and ponds is a perfect place for hikers, cyclists and golden trout enthusiasts. The most beautiful places in the area are the four nature reserves with outstanding "Park" reserve and, located a little further, "Ostrężnik"reserve. Crystal Sources of Elżbieta and Zygmunt give rise to Wiercica river, meandering through the charming valley of Jura hills. A showcase of this landscape are unusual limestone rocks of fancy shapes, among which you will find Devil's Bridges or gates to the forest, called Twardowski Gate. Midsummer Night's Dream Ponds, Americans or Iridion made famous by the poem of Krasiński shimmer with a palette of colours of surroundings reflecting in their mirror. Visiting Bear Cave you can learn the place where the remains of mammoth, bones of a rhinoceros and the largest Jurassic bear were found. After an active rest you are attracted for a delicious dinner with wonderful scent by the oldest, and at the same time Europe's most famous Trout Hatchery.
