The area situated to the north-east of Kraków is known as the Switzerland of Kraków. The name was ascribed with due reason: it is a land of valleys and gorges traversed by winding rivers and a kingdom of monadnocks, caves and karst springs. This region is perfect for one-day trips facilitated by a number of hiking and cycling tracks. The park encompasses many Jurassic valleys including the most popular ones such as the Będkowska Valley, the Bolechowicka Valley, the Eliaszówka Valley (see p. XXX), the Kluczwoda Valley (see p. XXX), the Kobylańska Valley, the Racławka Valley, and the Szklarka Valley. There are also two caves open to sightseeing: the Nietoperzowa (Bat) Cave (see p. XXX) and the Wierzchowska Góra Cave (see p. XXX). The late-Gothic churches in Poczółtowice and Racławice, located along the Wooden Architecture Route, are also worth a visit.
