The longest valley of the Kraków Valleys Landscape Park. It is about 9 km long and is almost completely occupied by rural buildings.
The lower part of the valley is free from buildings and it becomes visibly narrower; it becomes forested, deep, and on the sides limestone rocks of varying age appear. This results from, among other things, the fact that this area is cut with latitudinal faults. Also, an educational path goes through this area and it introduces its geological structure.
