Private Tour to Eagles Nests Castles : Beautiful Nature & Great History in the background

In XIV century there was important trade route from Krakow to the west therefore Gothic castles were built there on the rocks to protect it. They are called Eagles' Nests due to their location on tops of the rocks. One of them is ruined although looking amazing and one in Pieskowa Skala is renovated and considered to be the pearl of Gothic-Renaissance architecture in Poland. It may be visited inside.

A Recent Review of this tour

After a very hectic week, I was delighted to have a tour of Eagle's Nest at the National Park which was restful and informative. Christopher was an excellent guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided a very informative tour. I regret I only had one day in Krakow. I hope to return one day to enjoy the city and surrounding areas more fully. I will definitely ask Christopher to be my guide. I highly recommend him for your tours.
