Krzyżtopór Castle

The small village of Ujazd (oo-yahst), around 30km west of Sandomierz, is home to arguably Poland’s most bizarre ruin.


Built between 1360 and 1382, this massive church has retained much of its Gothic exterior, apart from the Baroque facade added in the 17th century.

Knights’ Armoury

This small exhibition of medieval armour, weaponry and torture instruments is actually a lot more fun than it seems at first glance.

Diocesan Museum

The quintessential example of Sandomierz’s underrated assets, the medieval Długosz House (Dom Długosza) was built in 1476 for Poland’s first historian.

Royal Castle and Regional Museum

The Royal Castle was built in the 14th century on the site of a previous wooden stronghold and was gradually extended during the next three centuries.
