The narrow village of Ojców is located in the national park, and is popular with day trippers from Kraków. There are a couple of museums in town, but the true allure of Ojców is its access to the tourist trails running through the national park.
Before you embark on a hike, buy a map of the park in Kraków or at the Ojców PTTK office. There are a couple of versions, but Compass’ Ojcowski Park Narodowy (scale 1:20,000, 11zł) stands out for detailing every trail, road and rock.
There are several sleeping options near the Pieskowa Skała Castle and Ojców, and more along the road between them.
Ask about private rooms (40zł to 60zł per person) at the PTTK office, or wander through Ojców village and look for ‘noclegi’ (accommodation) signs.
