“Little Rome”

Perched on the high Vistula bank, Sandomierz is one of Poland’s oldest and most attractive cities. Its unique old town hosts the Gothic Opatow Gate, town hall (14th c.) and the Gothic cathedral. The most valued historical buildings are those of the Romanesque St James’ Church and the Dominican monastery with defensive belfry and rich ornamentats.

A labyrinth of underground tunnels where merchants stored their goods spreads underneath the city, today a tourist route of 470 meters. Within the city limits and beyond them, picturesque loess ravines with rich floral life.
