A renovated castle with picturesque views and park, and a hidden art gallery inside. It offers free entrance on Fridays, and children under 7 are also free to go inside. Moreover, children get a colorful book (made of postcards) and stickers, so while coming from...More

The museum was very nice to visit and has a great restaurant. My husband said it was one of the best foods he ate, which includes a cream of onion soup and chicken breast breaded with corn flakes. I would prefer they include vegan options...More

Very nice place, beautifully restored castle located in the national park. Interesting exhibition of art and furniture, but unfortunately taking photos is forbidden. Good restaurant with moderate prices and tasty food. Nice place for a day out.

Tried to go up trail to castle but it was solid ice. Nobody else in the parking lot. Winter may not be the best time to see the building but the country is lovely covered in snow.

A nice place, with a great view, but nothing super-spectacular - good to visit for a short period of time, but not necessarily to stay longer.

Very beautiful castle, and the whole territory of the park around the castle. Entrance ticket costs 10 zl, normal. For free you can see the park, great stones, inner garden, and you can go upstairs through restaurant to get to good view point. Highly recommend!

After two years of refurbishment, when tourists could admire it only from the outside, Pieskowa Skała castle reopened it's gates before 2016 season. All new and fresh, but they didn't avoid some mistakes, such as misleading signage on trips inside inner courtyard. The new exposition...More

The most interesting thing inside (at least for me) is hidden gardens (it is not a park) nearby the wall. It is not possible to see from outside. Unfortunately, I don't know about the gates. In addition to the castle you can... More
