Earlier this year we did a roadtrip through Poland, and one of the most unique place we visited was Wąwóz Korzeniowy Dół, which is a unique and interesting gorge located near the small town of Kazimierz Dolny.

Before we get into exploring this place let me explain how to find it - it wasnt as easy as we thought, as reading the Google reviews it sounded like a very touristy spot but we were nearly the only ones there. If you put the address into Google you will find the parking nearby. after a small walk you will come to a shop, and you can walk right alongside the shop and enter the eroded gorge - no entry fee is necessary!

Stunning!

The word is that this place has been eroded over thousands of years, and thus gives the look of a walkway with massive protruding treeroots along the sides. My first impressions were that it looks like something from a movie or TV show - Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones come to mind :).

Impressive!

Each curve and turn gives a different impression and a different look at some of the stunning and massive tree roots. The area is atleast 3 or 4 meters wide, and goes on for a couple of hundred meters so there is plenty of time to take it all in.

As I said when we went there were barely any people around (and it was summer!), but maybe we just got lucky somehow... it seemed more like a hidden gem to me.

If you are interested in unique pieces of nature then this is surely a place to visit. We only stayed for an hour at the most, as it is a small place but it was worth the extra trip if you are taking a roadtrip around Poland!
