Scenic view points

The Hill of Three Crosses with a summit at 90 above the Vistula river level. Its most recognizable sight are the plague crosses erected as an expression of thanksgiving for the town being spared from the cholera epidemic at the beginning of the 18th century

The hill, in the past called Limestone Mountain, which can be reached via Słoneczna Street or the walking path up the Vistula river. A panoramic view of the Vistula valley can be admired from the hill top, over the ruins of the spectacular Janowiec castle on the other bank of the river, and Męćmierz Village at the foot of the hill. Męćmierz, an old Fishers village transformed into a living open air museum by its new inhabitants who have moved old, rustic cottages here.

A lesser known, nevertheless truly worth recommending is the scenic view point in Parchatka village, about 8 km from Kazimierz. The place was appreciated by Duchess Izabela Czartoryska who had her refuge nearby. The above mentioned three crosses were to commemorate the beloved prematurely dead foster child of Duchess Zofia of Matuszkiewiczowie family - Kicka and her two little daughters. A beautiful view over the Vistula can be admired from the hill.
