  • Superbly situated Castle, the location is breathtaking. But, unfortunately, the lack of a professional guide for each group gentle disgust ...

  • We visited this Castle by booking the excursion from Krakow with Cracow city tour ... The tour lasts one hour and is very charming, especially the Valley where ... In the mountains, the river Dunajec and the Valley ... do not miss the crossing of the River in a canoe.

  • The castle is beautiful. I'm a huge fan of castles, brought up on books about Mr. Samochodziku! This castle I please. Sale, even though it is their little, are beautifully arranged. Regret is not only provided greater surface area and higher lookout tower.

  • Castle is situated near the lake. There are beautiful views. Near the castle is small port with few excursion boats. Prices are very good. I was disapointed that it was not possible to pay in € in the castle ticket office- in the parking place 3 meters from ticket office I pay in €, also in the port. So what was the problem?
  • 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.
  • Definitely worth the visit but not on weekends, even the place gets overcrowded. There are two little cruise ships that can get you to the second castle or just a tour around the lake.
  • Warte miejsce do odwiedzenia przedewszystkim Zamek.. polecalbym bardziej w tygodniu w czasie wakacji.. Piekne miejsce widokowe na całe jezioro Czortynskie ze samej zapory albo ze zamku.. wokolo jest duzo straganow z pamiatkami z regionu.. oraz pare budek z jedzeniem.. nieopodal również pomost na statki ktore plywaja po jeziorze
  • Very nice castle and surroundings. Dont miss this place.
