The road


It can be easily said that Plock is a city created for the weekend tourism and The Starzynski Hotel is close to everywhere. The biggest cities of the central Poland – Warsaw, Łódź, Toruń – are about 100km away from Płock, which takes more or less 2 hours of a car drive. To recharge your batteries after a tiring week, you don’t need to spend a lot of hours in the car each way. The receipt for a great evening is very easy! A Friday arrival to Starzynski, good dinner, sleep and breakfast with beautiful views and after a Saturday’s sightseeing, relaxation in the SPA. We have very attractive offers for weekend travelling lovers.
Few know that Płock is not connected with oil industry or events like “Płock in the Air” and “Audio River” only. This is a very interesting city if it comes to tourism. It is also about rich history inseparable from Poland’s history.

Do you know that?

  • During Herman’s and his son’s, Bolesław, reign Płock was the capital city (1078-1138), and the sarcophagus of these two kings, is in the Płock’s cathedral. The cathedral basilica is the most characteristic and recognizable building in Plock. It was built in 1144 thanks to foundation of a bishop, Aleksander of Malonne.
  • It was Bolesław Krzywousty who divided Poland into districts among his children in his testament.
  • The grandson of Krzywousty, Konrad Mazowiecki, in spite of good will, did not account for the history of this country. It was him who in 1226 invited The Order of Teutonic Knights for cooperation which was ended by Władysław Jagiełło in 1410 near Grunwald.
  • The prince’s castle was built in the XIV century by Kazimierz Wielki. In the XVI century it was restored and changed into Benedictine Abbey. Now the Diocesan Museum has its premise there and it exhibits the most precious monuments of the treasures, such as the herm of St. Zbigniew from the XIV century, the glass of Konrad Mazowiecki or gothic monstrances. Just next to the Museum, in the old building, we can find a collection of paintings, sculptures and artistic crafts and other monuments of sacred art.
  • The Piasts’ eagle, earlier put in Herman’s sarcophagus, was moved to caps, helmets and flags of the 1st Division of Infantry under the name of Tadeusz Kościuszko which was formed in 1943 in Siedlce near the River Oka in ZSRR. It could be seen on the tower of the tank “Rudy 102” w “Czterej pancerni i pies” series.
  • Płock – a heroic city. The Bolshevic Army attacked Płock on 18th August 1920. Thanks to a heroic stance of Płock’s citizens, it wasn’t conquered and the Bolshevics were forced to withdraw. In April 1921 while visiting the city, Piłsudski, the marshal honoured the defenders and the whole city. Płock is the only city in Poland decorated with the Cross of The Brave.
  • There are two important culture centres in Płock: the cathedral and the monastery of the Old-catholic Mariavits’ Church – the centre of Polish mariativism and the Sanctuary of God’s Mercy which is the destination for many pilgrimages. It was here that on 22nd February 1931, sister Faustina Kowalska was to have her first painting revelation of Jesus the Merciful.
  • The Płock’s bugle call is played by a trumpet player every day at 12:00 and 6:00 p.m.. After playing the bugle call on the Town Hall’s tower at 12:00, there is a scene of the Bolesław Krzywousty’s knight by his father – Władysław Herman.
  • The Masovian Museum is one of the oldest museums in Poland. Its collections include a unique collection of secession art. There are paintings of the greatest authors of this period: Wyspiański’s, Malczewski’s, Mehoffer’s, Laszczek’s, Laliqua’s and Galle’s.
  • “Małachowianka” – the oldest school in Poland among comprehensive schools (founded in 1180). In the basement of the Middle Ages period part of the building, there is a museum with relicts of roman and gothic architecture and in the gothic tower, there is an astrological observatory. Among the greatest graduates of the school were: Ignacy Mościcki – the president of the II RP and Tadeusz Mazowiecki – the first prime minister in the III RP, a traveller, Tony Halik or Jan Zumbach – the leader of a legendary Division 303.
  • In Płock’s zoo, you can see snow leopards, cape penguins, Manchurian cranes, Indian elephants, Persian leopards and big condors, giraffes, lions, seals, different kinds of apes such as tamarins and marmosets – the smallest apes in the world. The zoo’s pride are also sea and freshwater aquariums and the biggest collection of reptiles in Poland. The penguins are shown only in 3 Polish zoos – in Gdańsk, Warsaw and Płock.
  • You easily see a beautiful Płock’s pier from the windows of our hotel. The pier is exceptional because its construction was made parallel to the river coastline. It is the only pier of this type in Poland.
  • Each year there are aviation displays above the River Vistula under the name of Płock’s Air Picnic.
  • We provide return airport transfer for businessmen who come to the airport of Masovian Land Airclub and we give 30% discount on hangaring their plane in the club.
