Castles and fortresses

The Lower Silesian medieval castles were often raised on high and inaccessible rocks. They served as princely residences and were many times altered and reshaped in the subsequent centuries. Today some of them have become historical ruins, some are museum and others have been turned into accommodation facilities.

The most interesting medieval castles are found at Ksiaz, Bolkow, Chojnik near Sobieszow, Czocha near Lesna, Grodziec, Kliczkow and Kamieniec Zabkowicki.

The huge fortress at Klodzko is a fine example of military architecture kept in baroque style.
