Pszczyna Castle is a historic mansion, which combines many artistic styles from Gothic to Neoclassical. It stands in Poland , in the small town of Pszczyna . Pszczyna Castle is surrounded by an English park covering nearly 85 ha with beautiful lakes, streams, arched bridges and many species of exotic trees and shrubs.

History

The magnificent Pszczyna Castle was built in the 12th century, when the dukes of Opole built here a hunting lodge. The medieval mansion had been owned by the Hochberg family until 1945. The Hochbergs were one of the richest families in Europe . The building was rebuilt and expanded several times, so that the modest lodge gradually grew into a beautiful and mighty palace. After the end of World War II, the palace was damaged, yet preserved from the historical point of view. It has fallen into the hands of the state, which had it renewed and adapted.

Attractions

Nowadays, we can find here the Castle Museum, displaying the richly furnished and decorated interiors representing the different stages in the development of this medieval mansion. The Hall of Mirrors is a very interesting place where chamber music concerts are held. Exhibitions are held in some of the chambers, e.g. a collection of historical weapons and armours or an exhibition of hunting trophies. After the visit of Pszczyna Castle you can take a rest in the courtyard café, named after the composer Georg Philipp Telemann, who had lived here for four years. You can end your tour in the beautiful castle park, which is a place of true rest. Pszczyna Castle is open throughout the year - except December, only the opening hours change. The entrance to the palace costs from 5.00 zł.
