This beautiful national park was devastated in ninetheeth century due to cutting trees, digging in caves (some of people were looking for a fertiliser). In the same time explorers discovered new spieces of plants and animals. Beauty of the Prądnik Valley grabs the tourist's attention. What's more, a scultpure of area is very interesting. You can see for eg. the Needle of Deotyma, the Krakow's Gate. A limestone substrate contributed to create caves like the Łokietek Cave or Zbójecka Cave.
Due to a human activity, most of the species have died long time ago, but the nature has preserved a large variety of species you can admire now.The number of animals is estimate around 11 thousand living in the park. The Ojcowski National Park is recognisable by several symbols like for eg. bats.
