Travel Tips for Kazimierz Dolny
I like the various opportunities that KD offers for a panorama view of the town and its surroundings. But you really don't have to climb absolutely every hill to get this...!
The Three Crosses Mountain in the background is another one that offers a great view, but having seen Kazimierz Dolny from the Castle and/or the Baszta Tower, you may be experiencing a deja vu... your choice then.
If you want to climb the mountain, go up Zamkowa St. by the parish church, and then just follow the signs.
Picturesque panorama view
The view of the town and the Vistula river valley is quite amazing, isn't it?
You can see how tiny the town is with the market square in the centre, and I hope you can see the promenada walkway along the river valley.
This picture was taken from the three Three Crosses mountain... I skipped that one and checked the view from the castle and the tower hill instead, those are stunning too!
The photo is credited to my friend Adam who visited Kazimierz Dolny in November and took this photo at my request :-)
Renaissance style houses
There is Przybylo twin house built in 1617 with beautiful, huge attics in the Market Square (Rynek). These two houses are the most well known buildings and one of the finest examples of the renaissance style in Poland.

A gallery when you least expect it...
Always surprising about its art galleries... You may be passing by a gallery without even knowing it...!
Don't assume that galleries will be located only in outstanding buildings with huge signs to attract customers. Many galleries are... I'd say... proportionate to the size of the town [;-)] but don't ignore or downgrade them for this. Just go inside and check them out if you're looking for something unique and authentic.
Be warned that some of the galleries open only for weekends...
By the way, here's another example of old houses :-)
Lots of stone work...
Nearly every building is a type of stucco or stone...oweing to its longevity. I particularly liked the type of cobblestones in the streets. It made a muffled sound when the cars drove over it. The stones were rounded and smoother than the commonly found granite cobbles, which we have in New England or what you might see in Italy or England, for instance.
