  • The ruins were a dozen years ago. Since then, much has changed. Have been renovated two towers, from where you can watch located below the city and the surrounding area. It got there cleanly and safely. It is known that this castle is not as attractive as the castle in łańcut, but also because it was built in the 13th century and has been completely destroyed during the deluge. You cannot bypass this place even for its rich history, because it's in this castle were Polish Knights reunions, because in its surroundings there was a concentration of Polish troops moving to fight with the Teutonic Knights. In those days Castle at chęciny was the fortress into a stronghold, where as a child he lived the future King of Hungary and Polish King Władysław III of Poland, who was killed in the battle of Varna with the Turks in the year 1444.

  • The best thing about this castle are the great photos that you can make from the outside. It's also worth a short stop, but there's simply not much to do when inside, as it doesn't have any rooms to v...  more »
  • This is not a large property, you can enter the two towers, but there are no exhibitions or exhibits, is for some activities for children. There you can visit while passing through, but this is not the attraction to which I would recommend go specifically.

  • This is a beautiful medieval castle. It has a lot of attractions for children, such as shooting a bow, dressing as a knight or being put in a pillory. You can climb up 2 towers. The higher one offers an astonishing view the landscape. And from the second one you can see the Upper Castle in all its Glory. The Castle is located just a couple minutes of the S7 freeway.
  • Nice views from a top of both towers, some paid for activities inside like archery, opportunity to have photos in armour etc, you can take easy straight route to the castle or history path with all the polish kings statues alongside the route, definitely must go place to visit if in the area.
  • Worth the trip at any time of year. Amazing view of the village below.
  • Lovely ruins in a country side setting.
  • Its a beautiful castle near to Kielce & not just this castle but also the small town around it tells the untold story of the struggle of local people during medieval wars as well as the suffering of Jews in WW2. Its a beautiful place to visit as a whole!
