A very romantic place - a good example of the strange rock shapes typical of the area

It is worth the vist not only for the historical site but for the nature. Avoid public holidays and Sundays as the place is the usual family excursion of local people.

The interesting castle from XVI century, actually its ruins, well preserved and organized for sightseeing. From the top tower the gorgeous view on the valley The surroundings are varied and the access to the castle very easy. The shoddy attractions, like miniature park, or summer track downhill spoil the character if this place.

One of the best Polish castles to explore. Worth visiting out the season to see all its mysteries alone. However the parking area could be a bit developed.

Beautiful castle built on the calcic rocks. It's in ruins but the remainings are still impressive. You can have a short round trip around the castle walls with the spectacular views over the surroundings. Some parts of the route are steep and narrow so please be aware. Within the castle you can visit the small exhibition showing tools used in... More

I say "castle" because, despite the fact that it's in ruins, it's still really spectacular and far and away better than many, many other castles I've visited that aren't in ruins. Try not to get distracted by the atmosphere just outside the castle grounds, which includes restaurants and other tourist attractions (park with miniatures of all the important castles in... More

It is a majestic castle ruins that is perfectly maintained. It has multiple rooms and one of them is a museum. The area is surrounded by other attractions such as theme park (mini) or miniature park. There are restaurants with many options surrounding the area, so you will not get starving. The parking is also very well prepared, costs me... More

Took my 8 and 10 year old girls here. Of the 6 castles we visited on this trip to Poland, this was by far their favorite. Who doesn't love freely exploring a ruin, imagining how things were 400 years ago. Not even the tourist trap gauntlet below the castle can detract from this magnificent castle ruin.

A very nice medium size castle. With some parts renovated but mostly ruins. If you like old castles you should see this one.

The castle is surrounded by tourist-type stuff and a little park. The tour of the castle is well laid out with added stairs and ramps. There are a couple of sections where you go down the original stone stairs and have to hold onto a chain. The view from the top of the castle is beautiful. This place is perfect... More
