And that's about all to say about it. You have some nice views. But the building isn't that spectacular. You can go to some other buildings in the neighbourhood as well but also they are not that special.

The sleepy village hosts, up on a hill, the remains of the gothic castle that is now in ruins - but what ruins! A Short stroll up the hillside reveals the open court around which the remains of the walled castle are sprawling. The remains...More

Beautiful castle, mostly ruins with stunning views and the gardens make for a nice little walk. We came from Kazimierz Dolny, across on the ferry which saved us a very long drive around the river.

A short walk uphill from the town square tahes you to the castle and to the tower. The information boards are bilingual, Polish and English and very informative for those not well versed in Polish History. Well worth a visit.
