As part of our VT Full Day Tour, we visited the lovely town of Pszczyna. The main focus of our visit was to tour the CASTLE MUSEUM IN PSZCZYNA. The Castle is called the Polish Versailles and is no exaggeration, as I have seen Versailles and this castle is very comparable only on a smaller scale.
Constructed as a Castle in 13th century or earlier, in a Gothic style. It was rebuilt in Renaissance style in 17th century, in Baroque in 18th century and classicist in the 19th century.
Your first view is of the Grand Staircase and the magnificent tapestry at the top of the stairs.
The castle contains lordly and lavish living quarters from the 19th and 20th centuries which are richly decorated with furniture, carpets, clocks and paintings.
The most beautiful room has to be Mirror Hall. In this room we were treated to a wonderful concert of three young ladies - the singer, one on the piano and one on the base.
It was known that princes from Pszczyna loved to hunt. The castle was once a center of hunting to which aristocracy from the whole of Europe came. Deer and Bison were hunted. The Castle reflects this, as many rooms and halls display hundreds of hunting trophies.
