We were driving south from Warsaw towards my grandfather's village of Cmolas in the more southern reaches of Poland. We chose to stay at Baranow Castle, which is perhaps 17 kilometers from Cmolas and maybe 2.5 hours from Warsaw. Without Gosia having previous knowledge of this place, a traveller would be hard pressed to find it. There in the midst of quiet meadows and rural communities, you come upon Baranow.
The more modern building on the grounds houses the reception desk as well as the breakfast room, conference rooms and more modern hotel accomodations. Oh, gee -- they were heavily booked when we reserved and poor us -- we had to take a suite in the castle! With a weekend discount!
We could hardly believe it when we entered the room - so lavish and huge. We just sat and looked at it for a while. How did we manage to be so lucky? The views were either to the magnificent courtyard or to the English gardens to the north. Ahhh, let me see - how shall we choose?
If you are into castles and architecture..or taking a luxurious rest for a weekend, I would highly recommend that you stop along your way.
There are four towers, one at each corner of the castle. This one is probably the most beautifully decorated. Each one is individually styled and of course offers their own unique view. Probably part of their fortification planning.
- Pros:Wonderful study in historic architecture~romance~gardens
- Cons:Located in an out-of-the-way place
- In a nutshell:A feast for the eyes and the soul
The typical bride seems to have a fantasy of being a princess in a castle .... or so it would seem. One couple after... more travel advice
