    Bałtów - millions years ago dinosaurs roamed through the Kamienna River valley and left there their well-visible trail on the lime bedrock. The JuraPark Bałtów was set up nearby and it attracts lots of tourists every year. Touring the park is like traveling throughout our planet"s history from the Cambrian period till the present times. Reconstructed dinosaurs and other animal groups are the greatest attraction of the park. Worth to see the Stary Młyn (Old Mill) powered by water and still functioning. All elements of the mill equipment are in perfect operational state. An old miller who knows all secrets of the facility takes visitors around. The neoclassical palace (119th c.) of the Drucki-Lubecki family is surrounded by a park arranged in the 18th century and containing many old trees recognized as nature monuments. Prince Aleksander Drucki-Lubecki lived in the palace before WWII. The list of historical monuments in Bałtów can be supplemented by a wooden chapel of Saint Jan Nepomucen (19th c.) and a cemetery (19th c.) with a mausoleum of the Drucki-Lubecki princely family.

    “Modrzewie” Reserve – protects part of multi-species forest with natural character, with larch which grows loess ravine.
