We can start the route in the south of the poviat, along the Dunajec River, near the Tropsztyn Castle in Wytrzyszcz. This 13th century monument was crucial for the trade route by water and land towards Hungary and is famous for the legend of the Inca treasure.
VeloDunajec is a bicycle route marked out according to the course of the Dunajec, which is considered particularly beautiful in these southern regions. This trail enchants local visitors with a view of the Tatra Mountains, Gorce, Beskidy, Pieniny and Pogórze. It is worth going to the nearby Iwkowa, where there is an observation tower with a beautiful and unique in its beauty view of the Rożnowskie, Wiśnickie, Ciężkowskie, Beskidy, Brzesko and Okocim Foothills.
On the other hand, in the north of the poviat, interesting wooden buildings await visitors in Mokrzyska and Szczepanów. In Niedzieliska (commune of Szczurowa), with a bit of luck, you can see the “stork village”. In Przyborów there is a fishery “Zbyszko” and a manor and park complex, which is now the seat of a fishing farm. The VeloRaba route runs at the northwest end of the county.
In the central part of the region, there is Brzesko with the famous Okocim brewery.
