About Czocha Castle

Czocha Castle was erected in the 13th century on order by Czech king Wenceslas II (1271-1305) . It was built as a defense fort on the Czech-Polish border. In 1434 Czocha Castle was seized by the Hussites. During the Thirty Years´ War, it resisted attacks by Swedish armies. From 1453 it was owned by influential Nostitz noble family, who kept the castle for 250 years. In the mid 16th century, Johann von Nostitz ordered a general reconstruction. The medieval castle was remodelled into a romantic Renaissance residence. Unfortunately, the castle burnt down in 1793 but Earl Nostitz had it re-constructed, which took a very short time. In the early 20th century Czocha Castle was gained by Ernest Gütschow from Dresden. After the Second World War the castle was nationalized and became a recreation center for influential people - soldiers of the Polish Army.
