The real centre of Naleczow is the extensive and charming spa park, with its great selection of tree types and distinguished by several monumental sanatorium buildings and the Malachowski Palace. The heart of the park is, of course, the lake. There are both historical and modern sanatoriums as well as places to stay located on the border of the park, enveloped by lush greenery. The town’s main avenues are flanked by numerous old trees and there are many painstakingly renovated wooden villas and other residences, many of which are of architectural interest. The parish church, on the edge of the town, has an interesting cemetery beside it.
Naleczow is a small town of approximately 4000 inhabitants, located in the Lubelskie Voivodship, 25 km from Lublin and 24 km from Kazimierz Dolny. It is situated in the north-west area of the sandy Lublin Upland, within the Kazimierz Landscape Park and between 180 and 212 m above sea level.
A settlement existed here as early as the 14th century, but at the time it was called Bochotnica from the name of the nearby Bochotniczanka River. In 1523 the ownership of the area passed into the hands of the Samborzecki family. From that point, the settlement’s history took a turbulent turn. First, the town went through the tumultuous period of the Church Reformation and then, at the turn of the 18th century, it found itself in an economic crisis caused by numerous wars in the area.
