The Mascaron Trail leads you through the city's most important landmarks and attractions, with each figure having its unique symbolism and telling its own fascinating story. It’s no coincidence that there are 14 mascaron figures. Fourteen is the number of members formerly in the city council.

A map of the trail and stickers, which tourists may collect, are available at the Tourist Information Centre.  At each mascaron, an information board with a QR code awaits. Scan it, and you'll be ready to dive into the world of Tarnów adventures! On the walk, you will meet the Spirit of the Theatre (Duch Teatru), the Guardian of the Elements (Strażnik Żywiołów), the Guardian of Identity (Strażnik Tożsamości), the Mascaron of the Young (Maszkaron Młodych), and the Jester (Trefniś), and you will have the opportunity to discover the charms of the city.
