Krokowa Things to Do: 14 reviews and 35 photos
Krokowa is an old Kashubian village with records of it dating back to 1288. The oldest building in the village is a 14th century castle/palace re-built in 1784 and again in the 19th century, formerly with fortifications and a moat with a bridge. The moat and the bridge are still there. The castle used to belong to the von Krockow (Polish version: Krokowski) family for seven centuries. It now houses the Foundation European Meetings (Europejskie Spotkania) and is a conference centre and a hotel, but even if you do not stay there, do go inside to see the beautiful decor and ancient carved Gdansk furniture, a few samples of which I am going to present in my next tip.
The entrance to the park is free and worthwhile: some of the trees are over 200 years old and the lawns are beautifully tended (not that you can see that in our pictures taken in April).
