your experience

One of the largest castle complexes in Poland, this 14th-century architectural gem is a must-visit when in Poland. In addition to a beautiful Italian-styled courtyard, you will find several European architectural styles from the medieval, renaissance, and baroque periods. Learn about the castle's immovable significance in Polish history, and visit the Royal Private Apartments. Walk through the footsteps of bygone Polish Kings as you explore the rooms full of exquisite tapestries, chandeliers, and paintings.

Today, the castle also functions as an important art museum. An interesting part of the museum is the Oriental Art section, which boasts of hosting the largest collection of Ottoman tents in the European continent.
