Maczuga Herkulesa is a tall (30 meters) limestone monadnock situated in the north part of Ojców National Park near Pieskowa Skała, 30 kms north of Kraków in Poland. Its name, means the "cudgel (or bludgeon) of Hercules", due to its distinctive shape.
Karst topography of soluble bedrock characterizes the entire park. The area is noted for its rock formations, over 1000, although Maczuga Herkulesa may be the most famous. Apart from limestone monadnocks, there are numerous cliffs, ravines, and over 400 caves in the area.
