Within its walls, the medieval castle hides numerous secrets of its previous owners, slowly revealed by modern researchers. Touring Czocha Castle with a guide is like experiencing history mixed with marvelous legends and stories.
The tour begins in a grand Knight’s Hall, which occasionally serves as a ballroom – inside, guests take their first steps on a magical journey in a castle famed as the Polish Hogwarts.
Why Hogwarts? The Lower Silesian building is the location of world-famous LARP sessions, Summer School of Magic, and magic classes for school children.
The visitors may peek inside a beautiful Marble Hall, where they can see wall paintings and an infamous fireplace. Legends say that a days-old baby was bricked up inside of it.
The inside of the castle houses an exhibition of communication devices used by the Polish army back in the times of the Polish People’s Republic, as well as treasures found during the building’s renovation in 2015.
Visitors may enter the Treasury, once secured with steel and concrete doors – its content was desired by many.
The Library Hall, filled to the brim with various books, is a sight to behold – the room contains numerous masonry symbols, which may intrigue adventurers and history lovers alike.
The Portrait Hall, with portraits of Piast dynasty members hanging on its walls, is also available for touring.
The Prince’s Chamber is a place that sparks a lot of interest among visitors – according to legends, a peculiar mechanism remains hidden under the double bed, which drops those asleep into the dungeon.
The visitors may see a beautiful bathroom adjacent to the Bedroom or the Chamber of the last owner’s daughters. Tourists should climb the lookout tower and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Kwisa river and nearby forests.
Numerous sightseers pay special attention to the majestic object itself. Its fairytale appearance is highly appreciated, especially by amateur photographers.
