Kazimierz Dolny
A small town on the east bank of the Wisla river, at the point a small river valley joins the valley of the Wisla. The town is surrounded by wooded hills, and has many buildings of great interest, both of the Lublin renaissance and traditional wooden houses.
This is a beautiful small town on the Wisla (Vistula) river, surrounded by wooded hills and with a population of 3000. The firsat mention comes from 1246, when it was already on a trade route from the Black Sea to Western Europe. During the 15th and 16th centuries it was the second greatest town in the Lublin region. Fires, wars, and then finally the partitioning of Poland saw the end of Kazimierz as a significant town. The saviour was the discovery at the turn of the 20th century of the town by artists. It has an extremely precious urban complex with a medievel market square and renaisance monuments (houses, sw Anna's church, granaries near the river side). There is a church and monastery from the 17th century with a long set of covered steps up to the church. On a hill above the town are the ruins of a Gothic castle from the 14th century and a tower from the 13th century.
Many people come here for holidays, and a growing number own holiday homes, many of these people normally living in Warsaw. Whereas during the Socialist times there was only a couple of places to eat, restaurants and cafes have proliferated to cater for the growing number of visitors.
