Category:Castles of the Eagles' Nests
The Castles of the Eagles' Nests in Poland date mostly to the 14th century and were constructed by the order of King of Poland, Kazimierz the Great. They are named the "Eagles' Nests" as most of them were located on large, tall rocks. They were built along the 14th century Polish – Czech border to protect Krakow and important trading routes from foreign invaders.
The Trail of the Eagles' Nests includes castles – and their ruins – in Korzkiew, Ojców, Pieskowa Skała, Rabsztyn, Bydlin, Smoleń, Pilica, Ogrodzieniec, Morsko, Bobolice, Mirów, and Olsztyn (near Częstochowa). Some sources add the castles in Siewierz, Będzin, and Wawel in Kraków.
