Looking back across the river, the castle can be viewed as a whole...but when you are there, it is difficult to take it all in, to include its many buildings, courtyards, and vistas. A magnificent structure...or series of structures...with the country's dearest history and treasures.....safe....behind the walls. This protected enclave is held very close in every Polish heart.
The Castle is a photographer's delight. There are enough domes, steeples, courtyards and beautiful stonework to keep the film rolling... or just sit in the courtyard outside the gates and enjoy a coffee.
As you enter ..you walk back into the history of Poland. This castle tour is not to be missed. The architecture is memorable....some of the mechanics and details of the structures which were pointed out by the guide...are marvels for their time.
The story book court yard is just wonderful. Although it was pouring down rain, all the tourists seemed to enjoy it regardless. Small wonder the Poles revere this fabulous place.
