A wonderful place to see during a sunny day. Totally unexpected, despite its beauty, still many people don't know it. However there isn't much place to sit and chill.

Not sure where the yellow hostel is, but basically any tram going to "Czerwone Maki" will take you there. You get off at Norymberska and walk right, it will take you 10 minutes to get to the quarry rim.
