Photographer's Note

Today, another example of unique landscape in the close vicinity of Cracow - limestone rock in Jerzmanowice village.

Info about the region:
Jura Krakowsko-Czestochowska located between Cracow and Silesia, occupies the area of 2615 km2. Its unique character of Jurassic landscape is attributed to rocky limestone monadnocks, raising as single objects or in groups, revealing varied shapes. The largest of them are crowned by ruins of medieval castles, referred to as Eagle Nests.

The flora, consisting of c.a. 1500 species of vascular plants, places Jura Krakowsko-Czestochowska, next to the Tatras and the Pieniny Mountains, among the most valuable regions of Poland in terms of flora richness. The most characteristic element are limestone hillocks and gorges with truly mosaic system of plant communities.
