Bohemian Kazimierz Dolny, Poland in pictures

(Last Updated On: 10/01/2017)
I can’t be objectiv when talking about Kazimierz Dolny. This charming little town with bohemian vibe is one of the most visited attractions in Poland but since it’s located only 12kms from my hometown I’ve been going there frequently since I remember. I’ve spent there so much time, drunk there enormous quantity of beer and attended some of the best parties of my high school life. I consider it one of “my” places, the one I know inside out and where I play a guide for friends coming to this part of the country.

I totally can see why people are so crazy about Kazimierz Dolny. It’s lovely, it’s cozy, it’s beautiful! Very often it is called “the town of artists” and that is so very true as the number of the small galleries there is outstanding! I can’t blame all the creative types falling for Kazimierz Dolny – cobbled streets, rolling hills, old houses, Vistula river… the scenery is just perfect!

But the bohemian, artistic feel aren’t the only reason why so many people visit the town every year. Kazimierz Dolny is also one of the most historic places in Poland. That’s where the king used to have one of his numerous castles and where few more smaller castles (like for the king’s secret mistress) were located. Kazimierz was also an important trade center back when goods were transported down the Vistula from Kraków to Gdańsk – now along the river some beautiful garners remind of the old golden times.

Unfortunately over the years the town has changed a lot, slowly losing its authentic charm and becoming a more commercial touristy destination. It’s crazy especially over the weekends when the town is literally flooded with people (the majority comes from nearby Lublin or Warsaw as it’s just the easy trip to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city). My suggestion is – go there in the weekday, no matter which season and you will love it for sure!

      Unfortunately there is no direct train from Warsaw. There are some direct minibuses but not too comfortable. Or you can take the train to Pulawy (my hometown, 120kms away from Warsaw) and from in front of the train station there is a city bus no 12 that will take you to Kazimierz Dolny, 15kms away.
