Rzedkowice Things to Do: 1 reviews and 5 photos
The actual village of Rzedkowice has nothing special, but just outside the village lies an area of spectacular limestone cliffs. It's these cliffs that have made Rzedkowice one of the most popular climbing destinations in Poland. People come from all over to climb its sheer limestone cliffs.
The area is perfect for people of all ages and experiences. Most people coming to climb bring their own gear, however, if you're unprepared and really wanna give it a go, you can always ask someone to borrow gear. I didn't have any gear, but a friendly local let me borrow his, for a few minutes. Note, most people might only speak Polish though.
Most tourists visiting Rzedkowice sleep in a stable which is within walking distance from the cliffs. If you're new to the sport of rock climbing, you can go with an experienced instructor who will assist you.
Half the property is actualy owned by my cousin and her family. They're the ones who rent out the stable to tourists, and their daughter is one of the climbing instructors. They're really friendly, and are always willing to help out, and do whatever it takes to make sure you enjoy your visit. If rock climbing isn't for you, there are also a few nice hiking trails in the area. You can hike up to one of the high rocks on my cousin's property, and get a spectacular view of the surrounding areas. My cousin's family also own a few farm animals. If you wanna look around the property, just ask and they'll be happy to show you around.
Note, that overnight camping and campfires are not allowed, even though a lot of people don't obey these rules.
If you have any questions or concerns my cousin will always be happy to help. If she's not there, her husband and daughter should be. They only speak Polish though, and maybe some Russian.
