The New Castle, Grodno

(2.7/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Polish kings of the 18th century spent their summers at The New Castle. The castle forms an architectural complex with the old castle set on the other side of an arch bridge. The castles are home to the city’s historical and archaeological museum. The museum features about 7,000 artifacts, including artwork, old printed and handwritten books, weapons, icons, and religious items. Look for the relief of a Soviet coat of arms on the pediment of the main entrance. A sculpture of a mythical chthonic creature perched on the main gate represents a woman with a lioness body carrying a little boy on her back.

  • Two castles old and new. Two era totally different architectural styles and probably so interesting. Architects tried to and combined them in a single ensemble. Locks between an exceptional match. Of course from the original new castle practically nothing left. War and further restructuring of the late Baroque made it in neoclassical style. Still, the idea of architects and further implementation of delights for all the changes. Worth watching and definitely not be disappointed.

  • With all my love to the Grodno, castles, the old, the new, there is not impressive. Especially if you were in Nesvizh, Novogrudok, or World. The new hosted the third partition of Poland, we walked inside in January in one of the halls was an exhibition of Christmas toys, costumes for Christmas, and so on. Then they asked, where's Sam sejmovyj Hall, in which Poland popilili? As it turned out, it was held the Christmas exhibition
