    The little town of Ćmielów is located some 10 km east from Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski, on the boundary of the Iłżeckie Foothills and the Sandomierz Plateau. It sits on the Kamienna River with a tributary of River Przepaść.

The  Porcelain Factory AS Ćmielów produces porcelain ware with the use of original models and moulds that survived together with the worldwide known traditions of the Ćmielów porcelain products. A logo of Ćmielów Exclusive is now found on the newest products of the Ćmielów factory: porcelain jewelery items. They are all hand-made and hand-decorated. The Live Museum of Porcelain was established on the factory premises in 2005.

    In addition to the factory and the museum, visitors can see the ruin of the  castle once belonging to the chancellor Krzysztof Szydłowiecki. It is situated upon the Kamienna River and was raised in the years 1519-23. The castle premises can be divided into two sections: the castle proper erected on an island and the buildings at the foot of the castle with a tower gate. Only a fragment of the walls remained of the castle proper. Of the buildings at the foot of the castle only the tower gate joining an administration outbuilding are still there. Reconstructed in the early 19th century, this part of the castle housed a brewery. Remains of some earthen bastions are still distinguishable.
