Glances into History

The stone castle was built on order by Prince Bolko II the Small. At the end of the 14th century, the castle went into the hands of Lords von Schaffgotsch. However, during the Thirty Year´s War, the castle lord was accused of treason and was executed. Chojnik Castle was confiscated and used as a residence for the imperial army. Due to its location on a steep cliff Chojnik Castle has never been conquerred. After a strike of lightning in 1675, the castle burnt down. It was never restored so all you can see now is the stone ruins. Anyway, the place is dramatic and attracts tourists. In 1822, an inn was built so trips into the surroundings became quite popular. A tourist lodge was established in the restored northern bastion. However, after the Second World War. A change came with Knight's Brotherhood of Chojnik Castle, located at the castle, who brought the castle ruin to life. Every year in mid-September, this brotherhood organizes knights festival and a crossbow tournament .
