Katowice: Moszna Castle Tour

If you are a fan of Disney films with kings and queens, you should definitely visit one of the most beautiful and interesting castles in Poland – the Moszna Castle. It was built in the 18th century as a Baroque palace. From the outside, the architecture is very impressive, it has 99 towers and 365 rooms inside. After a fire which broke out in 1896, it was renovated by the Tiele-Winckler family which was currently living there. Luckily, the Moszna Castle was not damaged during World War 2. Once the war ended in 1945, the Russian Soviet army troops occupied it. Most of the equipment inside was destroyed, the works of art were taken away. The park surrounding is part of a landscape park with a valuable stand of grouped oaks. Of course like in every palace, there are legends and secret stories which you will hear during the tour. The castle is also the center of many cultural events. We guarantee that this is an attraction that you cannot miss!
