The town lies on bank of the river Kłodnica. Tourist attractions in the town include the Ujazd castle (formerly used by bishops of Wrocław) and two churches: 17th century baroque church, 19th century neogothic church.
Ujazd (prior to 1945 part of Prussia) was original geographic location for the title the duke of Ujest, that was used by the head of the family of Hohenlohe–Öhringen, a branch (1823) of that of Hohenlohe-Ingelfingen. Prince Hugo of Hohenlohe-Öhringen was created first duke of Ujest in 1861, and in 1897 was succeeded by his son Christian Kraft (born 1848). The duke was an hereditary member of the upper houses of Württemberg and Prussia.
