The New Castle, Grodno

2.7
#11 of 16 in Historic Sites in Grodno
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.

  • Well if the old lock not too looks like a castle, then this is the House of culture of some kind. Wonder how this can be called a castle

  • Building of neoclassical Soviet, with white façade with main door of access supported by 6 large columns. In the Centre and overlooking the entrance Soviet symbols, specifically the sickle and hammer wrapped in a wreath, and behind an obelisk topped with a Soviet cross as in the remarkable architecture within this country. By inside a museum with different information. The castle was built by the Kings of Poland in the 18th century and was partially destroyed in the second world war, being later reconstructed. After its reconstruction, it was the local communist party headquarters

  • In General, for me the castle itself had not made any impression-rather too much construction in Manor in an inconspicuous architectural style. And here is the garden with Apple trees-Louche apples I have not only not eaten-not seen!

  • A bit too modern building, but worth a visit as it has been the centrepiece of a lot of historical events in Polish and Belarusian history, including the last sejm
  • We got a voucher for a free entrance to the Castle. A lot of the confusion we called in support from this paper. Threw us from person to person. As with Bareja in movies. as I entered it it seems a lot of tourists there will. But as we walked to the individual halls it is mature lady from the just raised and turn on the light. The exhibition in the Soviet style. Beautiful Polish painting, beautiful products from ancient ages and right next to Zoology, dried plants and stuffed birds and immediately next to the Patriotic War of 1941 and the possibilities of the Belarusian army. It is unknown as to what. This some frame highlighted that, like an aquarium visit. "Lavatory" sorry for the expression, do not have any "zapadniego". Interesting fact because something such haven't yet seen. A person with a disability to actually be able to take care of them. Besides Ford, stink and. .... War of the ojczyźniania is the main topic. Even for free I do not recommend.

  • Interesting architecture, a lot of Polish accents throughout the Castle. In addition to this, we had a "Guide":), a local of Polish descent, he knew so much, and he talked so interesting, that grief was to part with it and I have to admit, that showed us Castle and a few other places in Grodno in just 5 hours and found that if wanted us to show only the most interesting places of Grodno, you'd have to be at least 5 days.

  • Historical place ... I would like more access to view and visit ... A lot of wedding cars. Prevents the tourists. We must not ignore so close to historical places.

  • Such a good place, and there's no good exhibitions. Aya-Ay. If you know how to move, the seat could be popular not only among photographers, but also among young people.
