The Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, although small, is very attractive in terms of tourism. You can find here both the beautiful landscapes of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains and historic cities like Sandomierz, as well as one of the largest amusement parks in Poland.
The capital of the region is Kielce, where the Geopark and Kadzielnia and Wietrznia geological reserves are located. In turn, the most attractive in terms of monuments is Sandomierz, located on the Vistula embankment, with a cathedral decorated with Ruthenian-Byzantine frescoes, a royal castle and loess gorges.
Active tourism is in the Świętokrzyskie Mountains region. Their best known range is Łysogóry with the highest peak Łysica, gołoborzami and the famous monastery on the Holy Cross.
At the beginning of the 19th century, the region belonged to the Old Polish industrial district. On the Kamienna River, over 100-150 summer industrial plants have survived to this day, such as the one in Maleniec and blast furnaces, e.g. in Starachowice, which is now turned into a Nature Center and techniques showing the natural and industrial heritage of the region.
Świętokrzyskie is also a place of family recreation. In Bałtów, the Tourist Complex is growing from year to year, a miniature park operates in Krajno, and a mini zoo in Kurozwęki.
Tourists also willingly visit Raj Cave and nearby Chęciny with the royal castle, Krzyżtopór castle in Ujeździe and the prehistoric history of flint in Krzemionki near Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski.
