and I would say there is no exaggeration in it. The castle is built on the basis of a square with a courtyard in the middle and fantstic round towers in each of the corners. What's more, there are some paintings on the vaulted ceilings, which is quite unusual.
There is also a French-style park around.
Really worth seeing.

Went to the castle for a team building event. We arranged a group tour for later in the day. The exterior of the castle is very. Ice and the gardens are very nice. Our tour guide took us through the castle and explained the history and the restoration efforts in the past. Much of the castle was damaged during a fire but the attempts to reconstruct and refurbish the interiors were made. Worth a stop if you are in the area especially if you are interested in history. Our group also had dinner at the restaurant and it was very good.

The castle is fantastic with a souvenir shop with lots of gifts. You have to pay a ticket 2PLN to go around beautiful gardens and separate ticket to see the castle. The castle is famous because they made a "Czarne Chmury"/"Black clouds" there.

The parking (for a fee) is available in a castle ground. The park around castle is a nice walk. The castle has the hotel inside so feel free to go and see the court yard and internal arcades without a tour. However for the rooms and chapel need to go with guide.

Frequent guided tours. We requested an English speaking guide and lucked out as there were a number of other visitors who wanted English speaking guide too. Our guide was dressed in historic costume and did a great job even though she struggled with her English a bit. She was very informative.

Castle must have been beautiful in 1600 & 1700's but it apparently suffered a couple of major fires in 1800's and sat empty for some time. It was restored in early 1900's by a Polish philanthropist. Ballroom was divided by newly (then) kitchen and bathrooms. Pretty outside grounds - sort of English garden without much needed attention. There is not very much original ornamentation or furniture. Russians burned whatever was left during WWII with exception of one set of tables and chairs in one of the towers which apparently was missed when the castle filled with smoke. Chapel was added in 1903 and restored later. Hotel and Restaurant operate from the property. Popular wedding venue. Not worth traveling to but if you are local, not a bad way to kill a couple of hours.

We had a wedding to attend and the same time we did a tour of the castle. Although the tour was only in Polish, we still decided to go along to see what was hidden in this interesting place. The food and service was excellent.

Nicely maintained castle considered a "small Wawel". A restaurant in the basement offers Polish cuisine and in the summer, there are occasional dinners in the courtyard. Also a nice museum. I visit each time I am in the region.

It was very strange to see that Royal Palace in Vilnius has almost twin Palace from outside here in Baranow Sandomierski. It was worth to see it.

I saw this building firstly at night floodlit on one side, moonlit on the other. Ghostly. The next day I had a tour the rooms were well lit sun light bathed each room, a lot of restoration is on going and there are many photos to show the work. There are rooms showing the history and old weapons and types of torture used. Gardens are well laid out and if you have time a golf driving range at the back.

Went to the castle with family for a Sunday lunch and although the service to get food was quite slow due to the amount of people there for lunch when it eventually did come the food was very good and well worth the price paid for it.

I tasted both the steak and wild boar and both meals were of high standard, taste and quality.

The gardens are beautiful and I would like to return one day soon and have a nice cold drink and desert on the court yard.
