The narrow village of Ojców is located in the national park, and is popular with day trippers from Kraków. There is a tiny nature museum 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; 10zł) stands out for detailing every trail, road and rock.
