The New Castle, Grodno
(1.1/5 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.

  • Currently beeing active as a library the outside if the building is still showing the sovjet past to its best. 
  • Like the nearby old castle is also the new castle in use as a museum. At the time I was there there were on the street: 2 exhibitions that were not really worth it. But go especially well to the first floor because there were still a number of icons, paintings and an Armory.
