It lies on the edge of the Carpathian foothills by an old trade route...it became a fortress in the 17thC to guard against entry from the Turks. 18thC it was transformed into a palacial residence.

We purchased the full audio tour package and saw the castle, stables and greenhouses. Audio WiFi was a bit difficult to stay in sync, but very helpful since I don't speak a word of Polish. A lot of history spanning one family over five centuries....More
