Welcome to Świętokrzyski National Park

This is Poland’s oldest mountainous geological formation and it shows its age. Erosion has whittled down ancient peaks; look for unusual piles of broken gołoborza (quartzite rock) on the northern slopes that date far back into prehistory.

The park draws hikers who usually follow the centuries-old pilgrimage route from the unappealing town of Nowa Słupia to the famous Benedictine monastery high in the hills at Święty Krzyż (Holy Cross).
