Lipnica’s Churches

You will begin the walk at the monument of Władysław Łokietek. Although the history of Lipnica reaches back to the 12th century, when the first parish was enacted here, it was formally established by the king in the 14th century.

The legend has it that the king founded the city as a thanksgiving for the miraculous recovery, as he had got lost in a wood during a hunt. 

The importance of Lipnica in the Kingdom of Poland grew quickly, which was vastly due to its favourable location. It lay at one of the most important political and trade routes in the Kingdom, the so-called Hungarian Route.

Since the 14th century, Lipnica developed brightly, and being a typical town of crafts and trade, it was famous for its numerous markets and fairs.
