This castle was recently restored by private owner. It was originally built by Polish King Kazimierz Wielki. Castle is small but interesting with several armor pieces borrowed from various museums on display. Entry fee is 22 PLZ. The restaurant at the foot of the castle serves good food, albeit pricy. Our bill for two people was 179 PLZ.

We have planned to visit the castle for many years. It has been restored privately from a ruin to lovely picturesque castle worth visiting. To make the journey possible we hired a car car from Joka, and with the help of sat nav managed the trip in 90mins from Krakow. Was it worth the journey? Well . . . . It has been beautifully restored in the local cream coloured limestone. so looks pretty impressive. The inside rooms are also well restored. As the place was a complete wreck before, the few contents, chairs, tables, torture items, armour etc have been acquired from elsewhere, but are contemporary with the original building. Currently, early 2018, you have to take the short 30min guided tour, which in our case was in Polish. I don't know about other languages. Tickets were only available at the Hotel reception. So check first: saves the walk up. The views were pretty impressive. and there is a sister (still in ruins) castle 30mins walk or 10min drive away.
The hotel has a restaurant, but seems to treat castle visitors as second class citizens. In our caseservice was very slow, every one was served before us, to the point of the waiter breaking off DURING taking our order to attend to a hotel guest. Wi-fi is only available to hotel guests not diners, which must save them a fortune?? My cup of tea arrived with no tea bag!!

We arrived at the counter and bough two tickets to two castles. (The other was Mirów.)
We paid more than the price list was showing next to the counter. We went back to the cash desk, and we got back 1/3 of the money. We climbed up to the gates where we found another cashier who demanded additional money in order to visit the exhibition inside. The exhibition contained old armors, furniture, pictures of King Kazimir the Great, a scaffold from a soap opera rolled there. There was nothing about the history of the castle, and details about the exhibited objects.

From Czestochowa in car the ride is pleasant and on the way we come across scenic landscapes dotted by massive limestone rocks and castles which are known as the Eagles’ Nests as some of them are perched on limestone cliffs.

Bobolice is simply gorgeous!

I am impressed with the Royal Castle’s beauty.
The creamy-white Bobolice castle seems as if it has come out of a fairy tale.

It has born witness to a stormy history and has been the object of an extraordinary metamorphosis.

This imposing castle enjoys panoramic views of the valley and is undoubtedly one of the symbols of the Polish Jura and one of the most beautiful fortresses on the Eagle’s Nests Trail. Several years back Bobolice was meticulously reconstructed. Its walls joined with the lime rocks are full of life once again.

The area in general is beautiful with lots of nature and great views of the castle. However, the entrance ticket for the castle is more expensive than for other castles in the area and there is only access to a very few rooms and the rooms you can go in contain very few items. There are NO information sheets / plaques anywhere in the castle. We spent more time on the stairs between floors (because most of the floors are closed off) than we did in the castle rooms. Total visit time about 30 minutes. Visit nearby Ogrodzieniec castle instead.

Connected to a nearby hotel, Boblice Castle has been completely rebuilt and restored. A small museum is located inside with some furniture, armor and weapons, plus the obligatory torture devices. Very few of the items are actually from the castle since it was a complete ruin. There is a small display of the condition before and the renovation works in the castle courtyard. Nice views of Castle Mirow and the rest of the surrounding area from the towers. Very nice but I could get rid of the feeling that I was on a movie set rather than a real castle. Worth visiting but there are other "more authentic" castles in the area.

We got there in the afternoon, climbed through the nice rock bride and wanted to enter the castle. The guy at the entrance sent us to a small wooden stall to buy tickets. We tried to ask if we can pay with card or if they need cash but the lady there said something in polish (what we understood that would be she had no tickets) and sent us down to the restaurant. As we arrived the lady at the restaurant explained she has no tickets there but could let us pay with card if we got a recipe from the lady in the stall, witch we obviously didn't receive. We arrived at the stall annoyed where another lady joined the first one and as we asked again for tickets the second lady said no problem while the first one still said no and babbled something in polish. If the second girl would have note be there we probably could't visit the castle.

So to the castle now. It is really great, rebuild in a very authentic manor and furnished just with real antique furniture end decoration. We enjoyed the short stay and loved the castle and surroundings a lot! This small treasure is really worth the struggle to get in ;)

Admission to castle was 15 PLN per person, payable at the nearby hotel reception desk. If you stay at the hotel, admission is free. Castle opens at 1030 am and features a 30-minute tour.

Actually, It's a fascinating view when you arrive to see this middle-ages castle above trees but when you are closer it looks maybe to "new". The most part of materials used to build it are the same than original one but some details looks "too XXI century" for me.So It's interesting to see a castle almost as it was many centuries ago but maybe it lost a bit of its soul for this ... nothing special inside. you can save money of the ticket if you are broke, if you are not, it's only 4 euros....
