The Trail of the Eagles' Nests of south-western Poland, is a marked trail, named after a chain of 25 medieval castles which the trail passes by, between Czestochowa and Krakow .
The castles date mostly to the 14th century, and were constructed by the order of King of Poland Kazimierz the Great. They have been named the "Eagles' Nests" as most of them are located on large, tall rocks of the Polish Jura Chain featuring many limestone cliffs, monadnocks and valleys below. They were built along the 14th century Polish border with the province of Silesia which belonged to the Czech Kingdom of Bohemia at that time. Many of the castles survived only in the form of picturesque ruins. The trail is 163 km long.
In the photo you can see ruins of the Olsztyn Castle located in the Olsztyn village, 12 kilometres south-east of Częstochowa, Silesian Voivodeship, Poland.

A superb high pov with the meandering fg path across the hill adding lead in lines & good perspective & depth. The ruined stone castle or fort makes a fine focal point & center of interest. Excellent color, sharpness & saturation with a marvellous blue sky. Tfs!
