Castle Grodno

SD/HD Mute

Wow… So beautifully located – on the bank of Bystrzyca river, on top of the spacious Choina hill at 450 metres above sea level. Surrounded by tonnes of greenness and a landscape reservation ‘Góra Choina'(Choina mountain) with a picturesque Lubachowskie Lake at its foot.

The history of the castle dates back to 800 AD, when a square guardhouse was reportedly built here. I was expanded in mid 14th century and since 15th century to mid 16th it was the property of knights whose main occupation was robbing. Then it became the property of Maciej von Lagau who expanded it heavily in 1545-1587, adding some buildings around the courtyard, an octagonal part of the tower, parts of walls and expanding the castle grounds.

The castle was taken by the Swedes and partially destroyed during the 30 year’s war. Last owners, von Zedlitz family, left it in 1774. Vicar Busching, next owner of the castle, ordered restoration works which were supposed to bring back the original appearance of the building. Whole castle complex was 170 m long. In 1904 a tourist shelter and an inn was opened here. Right now, the castle remains a property of Walim commune.
