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

Łancut castle including the carriage museum are well worth the time. It is a bit off the major tourist track and not many people speak English, but it is a lovely place to visit. We happened to go on a Monday which was free entry. You need to put on special overshoes to protect the beautiful wooden floors. No photography... More

From Rzeszow, 4plz will take you to Lancut by bus. There you will find Lancut Castle, one of Polands best preserved stately homes. The day we arrived the castle was closed but the grounds and gardens were open and free to enter. In the gardens was a greenhouse and in the centre of the greenhouse was a hidden cafe (The... More

Lancut castle is truly a hidden gem! It requires travel to the Rzezsow area about 2 hours east of Krakow on the E 40. Tickets cost about 1/3 of what you pay in Krakow for Wawel castle. There is much more to see in Lancut as all of the rooms are beautifully furnished. The crowning glory is the beautiful inlaid... More

I've been to a lot of places and I must say this must be the nicest palace I've seen. Even my teenagers liked it. Our guide was really great. Knew a lot about the place. The carriage museum was spectacular! One of the best in the world. Go visit. You will not regret.

It is one of the most beautiful aristocratic residences in Poland, sometimes called the Potocki Palace, since that family lived here for a few generations. The palace was built in 1628–1641 by Stanisław Lubomirski, and rebuilt in 1894–1903 in the style of French Neo-baroque. It is famous for its excellent interiors, orangery, and extraordinarily interesting collection of horse-drawn carriages. The... More

This is one of the best castles I have ever been to. Maybe not the most beautifull, but it is preserved very well and you feel as if you are back to centuries ago. In winter it is normally closed but you can book a visit for a group of people in advance by email, such as we did. Due... More
