Kazimierz Dolny, located a two-hour drive away from Warsaw, is a picturesque town located on the banks of the Vistula River and surrounded by hills, local vineyards, and loess ravines. With the glorious tenement buildings by Brothers Przybyl, it is often considered a masterpiece of Polish renaissance. The town is also a place of rich history. Its glory days started in the 14th century, when King Casimir the Great bought it and initiated its growth. Thanks to the Vistula river, the town could trade goods such as grain and wood with Gdansk – a crucial harbour city. The community that hugely contributed into the growth of Kazimierz Dolny was Jews. They are claimed to have lived here even since 11th century. You can find many traces of their heritage in the town, especially in the former Jewish district. Kazimierz Dolny is home to many painters and poets, inspired by the beauty of the surrounding landscape. You can find many art galleries and studios here owned by local artists. A traditonal rooster made of pastry is a local treat and a popular symbol of this charming tourist destination.
