We will see a traditional mill in beautiful surroundings in Złoty Potok, in the Kraków-Częstochowa. The water mill “Kołaczew” was powered with the water of the Wiercica water from medieval times, but the present building is 200 years old. The machines use an electric engine.
Złoty Potok
The early medieval settlement “Wały” lies in the vicinity of Złoty Potok. It was a rock stronghold located in the highland. It consisted of a few parts. It was erected on a forested promontory above the Wiercica river valley. It was composed of three outer settlements and a central fortress protected by the earthworks. The site was inhabited from the eighth to the twelfth century. The red marked Trail of the Eagles' Nests runs in the vicinity of the remains of the settlement earthworks.

The building of Rybaczówka, erected in the interwar years, in 1935, served as a mountain hostel of the Polish Tatra Society until the end of the Second World War. It is associated with the trout farm of the Raczynskis, which was once the first trout farm in Europe. The building was put up at the initiative of Count Aleksander Raczyński, who was known as a passionate of tourism. The building, alternately devastated and renovated during the communist period and neglected in the years after the fall of communism, is waiting for its revitalization. Currently, it is being used by the Silesian Agricultural Advisory Center in Częstochowa and for tourism purpose.
Złoty Potok
In Złoty Potok, a village of the Polish Jura, which is beautifully situated on the Wiercica, a tourist may not complain about the lack of attractions. These areas are renowned for their landscape values, and there is no shortage of monuments. In the center of the village, it is worthwhile to stop for a moment in the meticulously restored market square known under the name of Saint John’s The Baptist Square. The local parish church is also worth visiting, while the square itself is adorned with a fine well and a bronze statue of the "Nosiwódki", - a woman carrying the buckets of water.

Restauracja "Źrodlana" powstała latem 2007 roku, chociaż początki jej pierwszego otwarcia przypadają na lata 30-te. W latach 70-tych restauracja ta została przebudowana w inne miejsce, pozostawiając nadal jej nazwę "Źródlana", i tak od wielu lat lokal ten cieszy się dużą popularnością wśród klientów.
