Built outside the city walls, made of wood or clay and built in less than a year, now placed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

Beautifully surrounded by the forest at the height of 395 meters above sea level, the castle is often called ‘the Pearl of Lower Silesia’.

The trip was a very pleasant experience. Adam took us from the place we were staying, and left us there too at the end. We left at about 7 am so the road was pretty much empty and the trip there was fast. During the walk through the park Adam told us some fun facts and stories about the place, and we kind of tasted its history. The park in itself is a nice view, so definitely recommend going there!

Time is always short for this type of tour, but our dear Spartacus has definitely put me and my partner at ease, not rushing and explaining each monument step by step. Top organization, abundant snacks with water, courteous and local expert

very good visit with a very competent and very adaptable guide who does not count his hours. it was very flexible and he was really available to us. the tour lasted two hours longer than expected.

Adam was an excellent tour guide, thank you! He was very informative and seemed to be very proud of being a Polish native . Highly recommended .

Our driver was very nice! He knew lots of facts. It was just myself & my son and he made us feel very comfortable.
