Our group tour of GaliciaPoland and Ukraine stopped at many places off the usual tourist spots. Great if you had been to Poland previously and already seen the main sites. Castle is in ruins, but enough to see to occupy an hour or more. If...More

The castle is now in a stage of being the permanent and secured ruin. It is great to walk and search around, find secretive short cuts or dead-ends. Must see all the levels (3). Additional to the great views and amazing passages, there is a...More

It's in the middle of nowhere but worth a short detour if you are in the area. zl 10 entry fee and free parking. Take the audio tour otherwise you will end up retracing your steps or going down dead ends. The floor is very...More

Amazing. Must see before they will find investors who convert it to hotel. This place stimulates imagination of kids and adults. Feels a history.

Great castle to visit - especially when the weather is nice. Look for special events there. A lot of shows and activities for the whole family. Couples like to make their photo-sessions there since it's quite romantic ;) It's a really nice touch of a...More

Totally worth of coming and seeing! It is amazing and unexpected. The only thing is that the place is crowded but being there it is so understandable. I would wish myself more places like that in Poland.

We went by car from Krakow ; I do not see that it is very easy to reach by public transport. This is probably the biggest folly in Europe. Gigantic in scope, it was hardly used and no-one wanted to pay to keep it in...More
