Ojcowski trout

Ojcowski trout hung smoked fish
Wandering around the Ojców National Park, in its very heart, among outliers and forested hills, we come across the kingdom of trout.

Trout ponds in Ojców owe their unique character to a picturesque location, natural microclimate and crystal clear and well-oxygenated water from the Młynówka stream. The combination of these factors and, as a result, the imitation of a mountain stream, i.e. the natural environment of brown trout, creates excellent conditions for breeding. The ojcowski trout was bred here in the interwar period. The first trout farm was established here in 1935 on the land of Princess Ludwika Czartoryska and was one of the first of its kind in the region. In 2014, Magda Węgiel and her daughter Agnieszka Sendor leased the unused ponds intended for naturalization. Thanks to their hard work and full commitment, they have successfully restored the splendour of brown trout farming, and at the same time created a wonderful place for rest, relaxation and culinary experiences.  Ojcowski trout is a traditional product from the Małopolska region, registered by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. After a trout feast in a field restaurant, you can go for a half-hour walk to Łokietka Cave.
