Brzeg Castle

Firstly mentioned in 13th century, rebuilt in 16th century, the castle of Brzeg is the great monument of Reinaissance architectonic style. The builders were inspirated by the castle of Wawel in Cracow, so some elements remind this famous place. In Brzeg, the part which is especially worth noting is the main gate decorated with the sculptures of 12 Polish kings and 12 princes of Silesia region. Over 150 years the castle was the cultural centre of the region - till the year 1741, when it was damaged by Prussians. Later, it was used as a tavern and barracks what slowly changed the beautiful place into ruins. Fortunately, after the second world war it was renovated and now the visitors can enjoy the climate of the renaissance interior of the Museum of the Piasts of Silesia Region. It is also advised to see the castle in the late evening or night, when it is perfectly illuminated.
