Sights in Janowiec
- Sort by:
The village of Janowiec (yah- no -vyets), 2km upstream on the other side of the Vistula from Kazimierz Dolny, is best known for its castle, which is now part of the Janowiec Museum. Inside the grounds of the castle, visitors can climb a few levels to viewing platforms offering a wide perspective of the castle and the surrounding countryside. Various rooms show exhibitions and contemporary ‘art’.
It's worth going down to Janowiec village at the foot of the castle to see its mid-14th-century Gothic Parish Church, extensively rebuilt in Renaissance style in the 1530s. Inside is the tomb of the Firlej family, carved in the workshop of Santi Gucci from 1586 to 1587.
