Paszkówka is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Brezeznica, within Wadowice Country, Lesser Poland Voivodeshipt, in southern Poland. It lies approximately 16 kilometres (10 mi) north-east of Wadowice and 23 km (14 mi) south-west of the regional capital, Kraków.

Kraków is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century.[Kraków was the official capital of Poland until 1596 and has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, economic, cultural and artistic life. Cited as one of Europe's most beautiful cities, its Old Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The city has grown from a Stone Age settlement to Poland's second most important city. It began as a hamlet on Wawel Hill and was already being reported as a busy trading centre of Central Europe in 965.With the establishment of new universities and cultural venues at the emergence of the Second Polish Republic in 1918 and throughout the 20th century, Kraków reaffirmed its role as a major national academic and artistic centre. The city has a population of about 770,000, with approximately 8 million additional people living within a 100 km (62 mi) radius of its main square.

After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany at the start of World War II, the newly defined Distrikt Krakau (Kraków District) became the capital of Germany's General Government. The Jewish population of the city was forced into a walled zone known as the  Ghetto, from which they were sent to German extermination camps such as the nearby Auschwitz, never to return, and the Nazi concentrations camps like Plaszów.

In 1978, Karol Wojtyła, archbishop of Kraków, was elevated to the papacy as Pope John Paul II—the first Slavic pope ever, and the first non-Italian pope in 455 years. Also that year, UNESCO approved the first ever sites for its new World Heritage List, including the entire Old Town in inscribing Kraków's Historic Centre. Kraków is classified as a global city with the ranking of high sufficiency by GaWC. Its extensive cultural heritage across the epochs of Gothic Renaissance and Baroque Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture includes the Wawel Cathedral and the Royal Castle on the banks of the Vistula, the St Mary's Basilica, Saints Peter and Paul Church and the largest medieval market square in Europe, the Rynek Glówny. Kraków is home to Jagiellonian University, one of the oldest universties in the world and traditionally Poland's most reputable institution of higher learning.

In 2000, Kraków was named European Capital of Culture. In 2013 Kraków was officially approved as a UNESCO City of Literature. The city hosted the World Youth Day in July 2016.

Kraków's "Golden Age"

Woodcut of Kraków from the Noremberg Chronicle, 1493.

The 15th and 16th centuries were known as Poland's Złoty Wiek or Golden Age. Many works of Polish Renaissance art and architecture were created, including ancient synagogues in Kraków's Jewish quarter located in the north-eastern part of Kazimierz, such as the Old Synagogue. During the reign of Casimir IV, various artists came to work and live in Kraków, and Johann Haller established a printing press in the city after Kasper Straube had printed the Calendarium Craviense, the first work printed in Poland, in 1473.

In 1495, King John I Albert expelled the Jews from the city walls of Kraków; they moved to Kazimierz (now a district of Kraków). However, they were still allowed to trade on the Main Square.

In 1520, the most famous church bell in Poland, named Zyomunt after Sigismund I of Poland, was cast by Hans Behem. At that time, Hans Durer, a younger brother of artist and thinker Albrecht Durer, was Sigismund's court painter. Hans von Kulmbach made alterpieces for several churches. In 1553, the Kazimierz district council gave the Jewish Qahal a licence for the right to build their own interior walls across the western section of the already existing defensive walls. The walls were expanded again in 1608 due to the growth of the community and influx of Jews from Bohemia.[43] In 1572, King Sigismund II, the last of the Jagiellons, died childless. The Polish throne passed to Henry III of France and then to other foreign-based rulers in rapid succession, causing a decline in the city's importance that was worsened by pillaging during the Swedish invasion and by an outbreak of bubonic plague that left 20,000 of the city's residents dead. In 1596, Sigismund III of the House of Vasa moved the administrative capital of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from Kraków to Warsaw.

Mission of the Noble Cuisine

  • Lisieckie smoked meats, a local product protected by the EU law, are supplied to us by Stanisław Mądry - our neighbour on the other side of the Vistula.
  • Methods of storage / preservation of food in our kitchen

Attractions

This method of body care combined with relax has been known since the ancient times. Being rich in proteins, vitamins (mainly those from Group B), calcium and many other valuable ingredients, milk oils and moistens the skin. A bath in goat's milk gives the skin unusual delicacy and attractiveness by smoothing and firming it.

The hotel offer includes also baths in essential oils. It is an unusual experience both for the body and mind. Aromatic flower petals and the magic candlelight strengthen this effect by caressing senses. Essential oils are famous for their aroma-therapeutic and medicinal properties. A bath in water mixed with these oils can have a relaxing effect and/or increase vitality. Essential oils also have a very good effect on the smoothness and elasticity of the skin.
 

The Palace offers unusual aromatherapy treatments. Aromatherapy utilises the curative effect of natural essential oils on health and well-being. Sicilian Mandarin Oil has soothing, toning, calming and relaxing properties. Bergamot oil with a fresh flower scent helps to reduce stress and anxiety and alleviates mood swings. Lavender oil calms the mind and makes it easier to fall asleep.

 

You want to have a dinner in an unconventional place? What about the Fireplace Room? It is an ideal place for cold winter evenings. And what about a cellar and a dinner among the best wines from around the world? Are you romantic? Take your sweetheart to our small island and have dinner only with her in the middle of the lake. What about a table in the park, in the shadow of old trees? And for an engagement ceremony... The splendour of the Mirror Room will certainly enchant your chosen one, particularly by candlelight.

 

Visit the cellar, where you will find the best wines from around the world. Because of the unique atmosphere of this place, wine tastes best here. Our wines are made primarily in the Bergerac province in France, but also in other areas. Wine is stored properly in an adequate temperature. The interesting arrangement of the cellar creates a specific atmosphere, so we invite you to taste wines here. Everyday, before dinner, you can choose a bottle of wine for yourself. Brands are fine and prices are very attractive.

Imagine the narrow streets of Old Town, a walk along the Royal Route to the Wawel Hill, the biggest market square in Europe and atmospheric cafés of the Kazimierz district. And that all is only 25 km away from Paszkówka.

 

A perfect idea for an unconventional sightseeing tour of the neighbourhood. And what about a romantic ride with torches in the moonlight?

Frisbee golf is an excellent form of entertainment! The game is based on the rules of classical golf, where the ball is replaced with a frisbee disk and the classic hole is replaced with a metal basket. The player must throw the ball into the basket with the smallest number of throws. As in golf, the throw begins from the place where the disk landed after the previous throw. The match lasts several rounds, during which players collect their points.

 

It is an interesting and pleasant kind of recreation. It is based on marching with sticks adapted particularly for that purpose. March forward together! During Nordic Walking, a person practising this kind of activity engages most of his/her body muscles. They work in a completely different manner in comparison to an ordinary march. They become stronger and sturdier, particularly shoulders.

 

We invite our guests to a magnificent swimming pool and jacuzzi located near the historic Granary building. These attractions are available in the summer season from June till September. Around the pool, you can rest on deck chairs or hide in the shadow of parasols.

Swimming pool, jacuzzi and fitness center will not be open in 2019 as they are planned to be reconstructed.
