Dunajec River Gorge rafting - the river, a tributary of the Vistula, transects the central portion of the Pieniny Mountains range. In the process it drops some 75 feet. The river's narrow gorge changes direction by more than 90 degrees a dozen times in half as many miles crating many picturesque vistas. Raft trips through the gorge have been one of the most popular tourist attractions of the region for the last century and a half There are two gothic castles (one of them in ruins) in the river' s vicinity, we recommend you to visit. Niedzica Castle, a major tourist attraction, remains in excellent repair. A dam at the foot of it was constructed in the 90*s creating a large and picturesque lake. Two unforgettable hours on the raft and a look at the gothic architecture, all this in the scenery of the Pieniny National Park.
Village of Sromowce, where the rafting starts, is situated about 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Cracow.
