Czorsztyn is the ruin of the castle above the Czorsztyńskiego Lake in Poland . It is located in the southern part of the country, in the tourist area called Pieniny, on the Castle Hill (589 m) .


Czorsztyn was founded sometime around the 13th century. At that time, this was probably a simple fort built of wood and clay. In the 14th century the fort was further developed by the King Casimir the Great. The castle became a royal guard house at the Polish - Hungarian border. On the Hungarian side of the border, there was a castle called Niedzica (Nedeca) , which has been preserved until the present time as one of the best preserved castles in Europe . Czorsztyn castle hosted many Polish kings and was gradually developed and remodelled. King John Casimir hid there the Crown Jewels when the Swedes attacked the country in the 18th century. Like other castles, Czorsztyn was gradually losing its importance, it burnt down in 1790, and it fell into disrepair. At present, you can see only fragments of the walls and of the tower, Anyway , Czorsztyn Castle has been the national cultural monument.
