Come spend your holiday in Nałęczów. Many attractions and places worth visiting are waiting here for you.
NAŁĘCZÓW — a spa town famous for its unique microclimate and calcareous and ferruginous medicinal springs discovered at the end of the 18th century on the area of the Małachowski park (the family owned Nałęczów at the time and the town owes its name to them after the coat of arms of Stanisław Małachowski-Nałęcz).
At the end of the 19th century, Nałęczów became the trendiest spa in the Kingdom of Poland thanks to a company set up by doctors who had been exiled to Siberia: Fortunat Łowicki, Konrad Chmielewski and Wacław Lasocki. They started to organise a sanatorium there and soon turned Nałęczów into a modern spa that was presented as Cisy on the pages of Stefan Żeromski’s novel ‘Homeless people’.
The most interesting places that are worth seeing include:
- Spa Park
- Bolesław Prus Museum
- Stefan Żeromski Museum, Adaś Żeromski mausoleum
