Castle in Bydlin

SD/HD Mute

Medieval ruins of the castle in Bydlin picturesquely tower over a rocky hill. Supposedly it used to serve as a church. Some say that it wasn’t a castle at all and served as a sacral building. Here’s the castle in Bydlin, which may not have been a castle at all :).

However, there are sources that state that a fortress was built here in 14th century – a defensive tower. It was transformed into a church in the first half of 16th century which was then destroyed by Swedes in 1655. It was rebuilt several dozen years later using local limestone but it has fallen into ruin in 18th century. The only remains are the moat and a bit of walls which form a square that’s 11×24 m big. In 2009, part of the walls fell down. It was rebuilt in 2012. Then, the place was tidied up, loose stones in the wall were reattached, steps and railing renovated. The castle is open to public right now.
