Rudniański Park Krajobrazowy
Rudniański Landscape Park
Alwernia Tourist subregion: Oświęcimski
ul. Vetulaniego 1A, 31-227
Situated to the east of Kraków, on the Krakowska Upland, the park was created to protect precious forest complexes such as the dry-ground and mixed coniferous forests, as well as the grass plants and xerothermic bushes growing on the upland slopes and limestone rocks. The region’s distinctive features are the picturesque logging uplands built from the Jurassic limestone. The Valley of the Runo Spring, from which the park derived its name, is one of the most attractive sights. It is also worth spending a few moments in Alwernia, which charms with its splendid market square of historic wooden buildings.
