Magnificent example of an early baroque aristocratic residence was refurbished in the late 18th century to become a lavish artistic salon, which played host to such famous guests as Louis XIII of France and Emperor Franz Jozef of Austria.
We purchased the full audio tour package and saw the castle, stables and greenhouses. Audio WiFi was a bit difficult to stay in sync, but very helpful since I don't speak a word of Polish. A lot of history spanning one family over five centuries. Big collection of documents going back to the 1600's. Some rooms are original, others are restored. Huge collection of horse carriages at stables. Allow 2 hour. Better for adults then children. Greenhouse had large exotic orchard collection. Bring a camera.

really nice Synagogue, unfortunately often closed. When I was there in October 2014 it was under reconstruction. However even in this time it looked very nice. There are still some artefacts from the old time, bima and paintings. Fee is symbolic - less than 1 euro

Forget the stupid orchids: the closed patio inside hides a cool drinks and ice cream place with tables and deck chairs. I'm seriously considering the two hour drive from Kraków just to sit and chill. Plus it's situated in the most beautiful palace park this side of Poland's A4 motorway.

This museum is an educational tribute and monument to the Polish people who died or risked death in Markowa, Poland. There are many photographs and documents to examine with translations in both Polish, Hebrew and English. The family of 8 murdered on this property in 1944 by the Nazi's were apparently only one of many families who died or risked dying trying to hide Jews from the nearby ghetto from capture and murder. Some of the original farmhouse furnishings have survived and can be looked at and touched. It is very tasteful and somber.

I visited this museum with a group of Poles. It had been specially arranged for us. The distillery is no longer active but the security remains. Once we had our guide we were allowed to drive inside and just as well. It was a long way.
The guide initially described the process and showed us some machinery and stills used in the past. They were in perfect condition. We were then shown some of the many products that were made in the distillery. We were moved to a small room with some period photographs, a diorama of the process and the original bottle drier.
Then came the high point. We were taken to what could have been the board room. Around the walls were excellent paintings of the original owners and on the table were two large trays of the distillery's products and ample shot glasses. We were expected to serve ourselves. This we did with equanimity. We stayed here until everyone had been sated.
The downside for me was that the tour was entirely in Polish so I missed some of the detail. My wife was whispering the important parts to me so I got the general idea.
I think there is a minimum group size but as I had nothing to do with the organisaion I cannot say for certain.
After the tour we were taken to the outlet shop. Here they have most of the products we sampled and some additional wines from around the world. The prices seemed comparable to those we had seen in the shops.
