Ojców [ˈɔi̯t͡suf] is a village in Gmina Skała, in Kraków County, Lesser Poland Voivodeship, in southern Poland.[1] It is one of the sights of the Eagle Nests Trail (Szlak Orlich Gniazd), as there are the ruins of a gothic castle near the village. The village is where the authorities of the Ojców National Park (the smallest of Poland's 23 national parks) have their headquarters. It lies approximately 4 kilometres (2 mi) south-west of Skała and 18 km (11 mi) north-west of the regional capital Kraków.
