Castle in Wleń

SD/HD Mute

Its history dates back to 12th century when there was a wooden mansion here, but since the times of Bolesław III Wrymouth things started changing :) First brick part was already built in the end of 12th century and consisted of the wall and a tower which prevailed until today and is 12 metres tall.

There were several more reconstructions of the castle which is nothing unusual as it is quite old :) In 14th century a middle castle was built while the fortress was expanded and fortified. In 16th century the walls and the tower were raised. During 30 years’ war the castle was repeatedly under siege and then burned in 1646 after which it fell into ruin.

There were no significant attempts to reconstruct the castle, however the tower was opened for sightseeing and tourist could enjoy the view of Karkonosze from it. In 2005 – due to collapse danger – the castle was closed. It’s waiting to be renovated now. You can enter its grounds right now, but drone’s perspective seems like the best way to see it:)
