This castle shows the history of Poland the best. The mixture of styles, the location and the majesty of this building sound unfortunately like a foregone power. The castle is located close to the other tourist attractions. You can also go there from Kazimierz Dolny...More

And that's about all to say about it. You have some nice views. But the building isn't that spectacular. You can go to some other buildings in the neighbourhood as well but also they are not that special.

It used to be the last private castle in Poland. Very unique and interesting place. It was my 5th or 6th visit to this place. Highly recommended.

Beautiful castle, mostly ruins with stunning views and the gardens make for a nice little walk. We came from Kazimierz Dolny, across on the ferry which saved us a very long drive around the river.

A short walk uphill from the town square tahes you to the castle and to the tower. The information boards are bilingual, Polish and English and very informative for those not well versed in Polish History. Well worth a visit.
