We take a walk to the Castle in Bobolice from a nearby castle in Mirów. We’re excited to see how it looks, since its renovation that ended in 2011 was quite a controversial process. It’s cool to see it reconstructed since the rest of castles and strongholds on the Trail of Eagles’ Nests may be picturesque, but they’re all ruins.
It was built in 14th century by the order of Casimir II the Great in order to strengthen the border with Silesia. For a short period of time it was in the hands of a Hungarian – Andrzej Schoeny who then lost it to Władysław II Jagiełło in 1391.
It was conquered in 1587 for the first time, when Maximilian II raided it. It was destroyed during the Deluge in 1675 which made king Jan III Sobieski sleep in a tent when he once stayed here.
It was renovated thanks to the family and the current owners.
