A WALK AROUND JORDANÓW Powiatsuski 10 February 2022


Length of route: approx. 3 km, Walking time: approx. 1 hrs 30 mins

We start our walk around Jordanów at the market square. Here we will find three interesting brick buildings which, together with the parish church located near the square, form an interesting complex of neo-Gothic urban architecture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

After viewing the square, it is worth walking 150 m along Piłsudskiego Street, which runs out of its eastern corner. On the left side of the street we will find a commemorative stone in the place where the Blessed Father Piotr Dańkowski, one of the martyrs of World War II, was born.

We walk along Piłsudskiego Street for a while before turning left into Słowackiego Street. Soon we reach the crosswise Gen. Maczka Street, where we go right, passing a nice chapel with a statue of Pieta from 1833. A little further on, at 32 Gen. Maczka Street, there is the ‘Stara Chałupa’ – the author’s gallery of Renata and Stanisław Starzec. Located in an over 100-year-old house, the gallery features old equipment, furniture and tools, including complete equipment of a saddler’s workshop, as well as the works of the owners: sculptures by S. Starzec, made in the original author’s style, and paintings by R. Starzec.

We return along Gen Maczek Street to the market square, and from its north-western corner we turn right, walking 200 m along the busy national road no. 28, and then down the steps to the left. At their foot, in a place called Na Zakręach, there is another commemorative stone, placed near the place where on 28 August 1942 the Germans shot approx. 70 Jews.

Once again we return to the market place, this time heading towards Kościelna Street and soon we are standing in front of the Holy Trinity Parish Church.

If we walk approx. 400 m down Kościelna Street (southwards), we will come across an interesting building leaning against the slope between the road and the parish cemetery located above. This is the former ‘Poczekaj’ Inn, erected in the 18th century. According to its original purpose it served travellers, mainly merchants passing through Jordanów on one of the variants of the salt route leading from Cracow and Wieliczka to Hungary.

From the inn we return along Kolejowa Street to Jordanów’s market square where we end our walk around the town.
