Beautiful courtyard, Chambers, dungeons, well these sites appeal to any lover of castles. It is true that at the entrance of disputes crowd, but not worth getting discouraged and devote his life to these 2 hours a visit to the Castle. Simply worth it!

  • Nice exit near the castle of ZICA. The Castle overlooks a Lake artifiel, which offers a magnificent view on the summits of the Pieniny. Perfect output to achieve with young children more than a recreational park is located at the foot of the Castle.

  • Świetne miejsce na jednodniową wycieczkę, fantastyczne widoki, cena wstępu (14zł) odpowiednia dla miejsca. Niestety słabo poinformowane przewodniczki oferujące "historię" z PRL-u opowiadającą o tym, jak to państwo zgodnie z prawem odebrało zamek właścicielom. Większość eksponatów "pożyczona lub nabyta" (czytaj - ukradziona) z innych "muzeów". A great place for a one-day trip, fantastic sceneries, good price to enter(14zł). Guides offer terrible propaganda back from People's Republic of Poland. Most items inside the castle do not belong to this castle - they were stolen from other castles across Poland.
  • Very nice castle and surroundings. Dont miss this place.
  • Beautiful old castle. Not big inside as they are still restoring it.
  • Great views of the lake, dam, and the ruins.
  • Really interesting and with an incredibile sightseeing point above the lake
