Practical advices

Although this route is not demanding, it is worth preparing for it properly, so that nothing surprises you at any point. Start with the most important thing, which is your helmet. A good helmet is essential for your safety. Take care also of proper lighting, both front and rear. In addition to bike lights, equip your bike with reflectors so that you are highly visible on the road.


What else is worth taking with you on a trip? Make sure to pack a sweatshirt or a rail jacket in your backpack, in case the weather changes. It is also a good idea to bring snacks to give you energy during the trip. Protein bars or energy mousses work well.

Przeworsk – Zarzecze – Pruchnik – Cząstkowice – Przeworsk

    0 km

    While today Przeworsk is mainly bypassed as a signpost off the motorway, it once was the second most important town of the Przemyśl Land. This is evidenced by its location at the crossroads of trade routes running from south to north and from east to west, as well as the well-preserved urban layout with a representative market square, with a town hall and townhouses, and a smaller trade square with appropriate buildings. Leave the market square for Mickiewicz Square and turn left onto Lwowska Street, then right onto Gimnazjalna Street. At the fork, keep to the right. The road you are following changes its name consecutively to Wojska Polskiego Street and Stefana Czarnieckiego Street. Passing sparse buildings along the road running parallel with the course of the Mleczka River, which is 250-300 metres away, you will reach Maćkówka. Keep going straight south. Then you will cut through fields and fences of Zalesie Żurowskie, delve into the forest for a moment, and reach Zarzecze.

    The must-see spot in the village is the romantic park and the palace-park complex with the Dzieduszycki Museum. The palace dates back to 1819, as does the park. The museum preserves the richly furnished palace interiors, with numerous works of art, also brought by the palace's founder from Italy. An architecturally prominent element is the Roman-style tower, adorned with Doric columns and a meticulously crafted architrave. In the park, there are not only plantings from the 19th century but also older specimens of five-hundred-year-old oaks. Meanwhile, for military tourism enthusiasts, there is the Kochbunker, located on the north-western outskirts of the village. It is a small, round, concrete position for a machine gun. It was part of the b-2 line that the Germans built in 1944 to halt the advance of the Red Army. From the village, head east on Ks. Gajeckiego Street and follow the signpost to Bystrowice. The first village you will come across is Pełnatycze, and the next is Cząstkowice. From the latter, head towards Rzeplin. After Czudowice - a village mentioned in the 15th century - turn left in Rozbórz Długi towards Żurawica. The ascent will lead you to Pruchnik.

    Entering the town, you will pass a cemetery and via Kańczudzka Street you will reach the market square. Surrounded by low-rise single-family buildings, except for the town hall in the northern part, it is well-maintained, and its monuments are described. The oldest wooden houses date back to the 18th century. Attention is drawn to the columns supporting their arcades, as well as the stone plinths visible at some buildings. Old houses are covered with shingles. The market square's slab is mostly grassy, with numerous benches for relaxation, and from the town hall, you can clearly see the forest panorama of the hills south of the town. Leave the market square via Jana Pawła II Street in the east direction, and at the junction, keep to the right. Approaching Węgierka, you will notice the castle ruins and the manor house. The castle was probably built in the 14th or 15th century, and it fell into ruin after a fire at the end of the First Republic's existence. This bastion-type structure, with a single tower, was built on a square plan. Next to it is a nobleman's house with buttressed foundations and a wooden floor. Then, take the regional road no. 880 eastward until you reach Tyniowice. It is worth stopping by the ruins of the wooden church of St. Dimitri. It is a tiny temple with remnants of the iconostasis and an outline of a three-element construction. You will then reach Bystrowice. Turn left off regional road no. 880 and keep to the left. You will return to Cząstkowice.

    Entering the village, turn slightly to the right and at the next junction also stay on the right side. Then, look for a signpost to Wola Roźwienicka and head there. The road is winding, but it eventually goes west to Pełnatycze. You will pass through Mleczka and the old river bed, and then turn right onto the main village road. After a few minutes, you will reach Zarzecze. At the petrol station, turn right. You will pass through Kisielów and Cieszacin, passing more public buildings, and then arrive at Cieszacin Mały. In the middle of the village, turn sharply to the right. You will reach Ożańsk, where it is worth stopping by the palace complex. Built in a modernist style, it received some classical features during a recent renovation, making it an interesting example of eclecticism. Behind the palace, turn left. In the village of Mirocin, go straight down the main road, crossing the national road no. 94. You will pass the fire station of the Volunteer Fire Brigade in Rozbórz, then the church and a few chapels. At the large crossroads at the end of the road, turn left. Via Misiągiewicza Street, you will enter Przeworsk. You will turn right into Lwowska Street, then after 30 metres turn left and stand in Mickiewicza Square. From here, it is just a moment to the market square.
