The Grodno Castle

Grodno Castle (formerly Kynsburg) is a castle located in the southern parts of the Wałbrzych Mountains, on the Choina Mountain (450 metres).

One of the rarities of Lower Silesia is the Grodno Castle in Zagórze Śląskie, in the Walim commune – a pearl among the medieval fortresses. It was built on the top of the Choina Hill, and it dominates over the picturesque Valley of Bystrzyca Świdnicka. According to the legend, in the year 800, an English knight established a four-walled watchtower on this hill. A burg city was created together with various legends, which today introduce the visitors into the magic world of the fortress.

Imprisoned and enchained skeleton, which can be seen in the castle, refers to the legend of a Silesian princess Margaret.
Murky undergrounds of the castle hide a torture room – a place, which illustrates the atmosphere of the Inquisition.
Climb the castle tower to admire the landscape seen from the observation deck.
The location and surrounding of the fortress make it a fairylike place. The wildlife on the castle hill was appreciated in 1957 when a nature reserve “Choina Mountains” was created here.
Grodno Castle Brotherhood always stands guard. Brave warriors always fight for everyone in need. If you want to get to know their courage, come to The Medieval Fair, which takes place each May.
