Toszek Castle

30th June 2014

During my summer vacation I love travelling and especially I love visiting castles. One of them is located here.

Toszek Castle, one of major cultural heritage pearls of Silesia, is situated in the western part of the Silesian Voivodship in the land province of Gliwice.








 Its history is closely connected with the history of the region. The castle is a unique Gothic monument. Once owned by the Piasts of Opole and notable families, the castle was visited by such prominent guests as German poets: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Joseph von Eichendorf. In the 1960s it was partly reconstructed. Nowadays the Toszek Castle houses the Municipal Culture Centre which is famous for its wide selection of tourist attractions. Regularly knight tournaments, concerts and other outdoor events are held in the Toszek Castle.

    It's different to other castles I have seen in photos, but it's good to be different.
