ROOTS GORGE NEAR KAZIMIERZ DOLNY / POLAND


If you once have the chance to visit the Eastern part of Poland with the region of Lublin, you should not miss to go also to Kazimierz Dolny being regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in the country with some nice Renaissance buildings. There you also have the opportunity to attend a shipping tour on Vistula river, but the real highlight in my opinion is the fabulous Roots Gorge lying not far away from Kazimierz Dolny.


We speak about a hollow way which has been naturally created by the forces of erosion – just wind and rain forming a new path to wildness. The magical Roots Gorge has a lenght of approximately 1 km where you can now observe varied trees clinging to the edges of the spectacular gorge. The roots of the trees have been exposed over the years, now they may be admired as uncovered streets leading to the depth of soil in search of water and other dark secrets of the plants’ world eventually not known by us.

  1. ‘Dark secrets of the plants world’. How wonderful! I have always considered plants as rather sedate, not to say boring entities. I once attended a birthday party of a tree in the woods. The tree had become 600 years old or so, or maybe 700, I couldn’t tell. I have to say, the party was extremely silent and, well, not much fun. But now that I learn plants have dark secrets, I will pay extra attention while walking in the forest again. Interesting pictures by the way!

    • I am glad and appreciate that this post found your interest. Plants and especially vast woods have always inspired people for dark myths, tales or nice poetry. So the forest can not be only a sedative place. Some time ago the fascinating book “Brilliant Green” by Stefano Mancuso and Alessandra Vitale (among others) was an eyeopener for me towards a better understanding of the intelligent world of the plants, their ways of communication and networking also in the deep grounds. So some research on this topic does already exist. Thanks for passing by!

  3. This is beautiful. I think I have seen roots like these in India. I am glad you chose to share. This April, I visited a state in India where root bridges are used. They are living root bridges and unique. I am planning to write about them. If you would like to check them out – I have a few pics on my Instagram handle. Thank you for joining!
