Lancut's castle is absolutely breathtaking! It's huge and stunning both from the inside and the outside. It's surrounded by the big, amazing park. It's definitely must-visit place in Poland.

Everyone who visited the castle would agree that the place is beautiful and one of the most authentic historic buildings in Europe. Well preserved architecture and all equipment (interiors, furniture, art, library) makes the place very unique! There is also a greatest collection of carts and carriages and an amazing collection of orchids in the Orchid House. Some of the... More

We entered the park after visiting the much more modest (but equally worth visiting) restored synagogue. What a surprise to see this castle for several hundred years ago. Very typical and iconic appearance, with well cared for grounds. Since other reports described disappointment with the tour inside, we did not enter.

It is a beautiful castle in a lovely garden - but the museum is grossly mismanaged. We had to visit it on Monday: no entrance fee, but a ban on guides and absolutely no explanations as to what one sees. The same applies to the horse-carriage collection. The only sign was a misspelled info that the rest room costs some... More

I had seen lots of castle in Europe, but this one is the best one. All best details taken from all Europe castles and put in one place.

Stopped to see this Castle while en-route to Krakow. Allow time for your visit because there are many rooms in the castle, along with beautiful grounds and a carriage house. We were given headsets( which did not work well so we constantly asked the staff to reset them) and booties to wear on our shoes to protect the floors(they can... More

So nice to spend time in this castle which is not overrun with tourists, but full of history. You really get a sense of the Polish aristocracy which was almost lost in WW2.

This is a beautiful castle - I found the Icon and Carriage exhibitions fantastic, the latter enhanced by the headset with English Commentary.

I visited Lancut on a trip across southern Poland that included stops at Belzec Concentration Camp, Zamosc, Majdanek Concentration Camp and Lublin. The entire trip was amazing, and Lancut was a pleasant stop and much needed rest from viewing the horrors of the Holocaust. The castle and museum are not be missed, and the gardens are spectacular. Be careful when... More
