The castle is incorporated in the medieval walls surrounding the town.

It was built by Polish king Kazimierz the Great in XIV century but ceased to serve as royal residence already in XV c. Destroyed several times by big fires and invadors, till now it survived only as picturesque ruins.

I entered the castle through the gate’s building and then walked onto a vast yard. On the left hand side I saw Knights Hall – the remians of the main castle’s body. It has no more roofs and the grass grows instead of the floors.

On the right a “Small Treasury” is situated. It rooms a tinly city museum where the best exhibit that I found was the scull inprisoned in a cage 😉

I often wonder why we can’t find an efficient use of so many of our castles and palaces so their uniqueness is properly exposed.
