The fact that this castle was blown up by the Nazis in 1945 and was rebuilt in replica during the 1970's - 80's says a lot about the Polish spirit to overcome. Although I have seen many historic buildings, observing the floor work and ceiling...More

The reconstruction of the castle took a long time but it is really something to see when you think that it was a pile of rubble at the end of world war two. Dont miss the three films in the basement. Definitly worth your time.

I’m taking off stars specifically because a good third of the rooms were closed for conservation on Sept 1st, yet they are still charging full price. The signs explaining this are not where you would expect, and I was very disappointed to get about a...More

Definitely worth a visit. My favorite room was the general assembly hall.. Magnificent! The ceiling is beautiful and knowing it had collapsed due to heavy bombing in 1939 and recently restored, makes it that more special
