“Day in Ksiaz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Incredible piece of architecture, however inside slightly disappointing. It pays of to walk through the park to nearby stables.

“Flower castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2011

Very romantic place in very unromantic neighbourhood - just few minutes away from one of the most ugly city in Poland. Huge castle on the rock over deep gorge.
Especially worth visiting during the Festival of Flowers held in May. Except flowers exhibition and fair, you can go for a walk to the castle park full of old big trees and flowering rhododendrons among them.

“Huge stately home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

Ignore the first car park you come to and keep going for 1km or so and you get right to the doors of the castle where there is a car park by an hotel attached to the site.

Pay for a photo permit as this costs next to nothing and you'll want to take several.

There are endless rooms, staircases, corridors and terraces. Each room has a card with full details in english as well as polish. Fascinating family history rooms.

It is good enough to go back to if we are in the area again.

Restaurant in the courtyard is good, reasonably priced and with good staff.
