Władysław łokietek? ... Ojców National Park

I spent the whole day in Ojcow national park yesterday. It was really very nice and interesting. But that is for another thread maybe (have some great pictures).

What (as always) caught my interest was the history of the place. We went up to the "Jaskinia Lokietka" (a one hour steep climb to the top, legs were burning) and there I got told about this king mentioned in the thread subject. That he was fleeing from a czech king and hide in that cave for six weeks. And that Ojco castle (very cool ruins in a very cool location/position) was built by his son as a memory of what his father had done in the area.

Problem is, only very little and shallow information have I found in english. I am sure there are lots more in Polish, which I am unable to take part in. Maybe people on this forum can tell me more, or translate some stuff about this king, his son (Casimir I believe) and the story about this cave and the whole area. Very interesting history indeed.

Thanks beforehand / Nojas

Hahaha, what?!

Were you also to Jaskinia Ciemna? They say it was the real hiding place of the King.

It was closed unfortunatly. Or we were too late.

We met a few groups of foreign tourists on our way around the Valley.

What time did you go? Was the wooden cash box at the bottom of the rock closed?

We were only one couple all on our own, but for sure we stood out from the crowd. All the amateurs was wearing hiking boots and other hiking clothes. I was wearing sneakers, jeans and shirt while climbing the mountain. ;-)

Yes it was closed, and the time must have been close to 16-17? Really don't know, we stop for some well deserved kielbasa on that restaurant by the river in that small village 10 minutes from main parking lot.

I remember you. You were the only ones without ropes and other gear.

It closes at 5pm.
I will show you my pics from the Dark Cave when I return from my next trip, to the real mountains in southern Poland.
