This is a nice composition and pleasing to the eye...but it leaves me with a question (naturally!)...is there are castle here or is this wall what's left of it?

Hilda said...

I can almost imagine the courtyard that the balcony looks down upon. Medieval?

Chyba rzecz, którą najlepiej pamiętam z Nowego Sącza (choć widziałem tylko z samochodu, wjeżdżając i wyjeżdżając) -- obok samego rynku.

This time it is really against the spring sky. How fun that an old fortress can inspire peace and serenity. Lovely image.

@Fio - nie sprawdzaliśmy czy są duchy:) Trzeba będzie tam iść nocą:)
@Jacob and Hilda - the castle was build in 1350-1360 by the king Casimir the Great. During the II World War Germans had stock of ammunition there. In 1945 the castle was blown by Germans. After the end of the war, bastille(Baszta Kowalska) was rebuilt (you can see it on our photos).

Jacob said...

Thanks for the information. Amazing it was built so long ago and then just blown up. Glad that it has been rebuilt.

You have added some splendid photos of very beautiful buildings here during Easter. This castle is very interesting and the photo is excellent.
Mostly I love the sunset photo.

Wonderful photo. I love partially ruined castles.

Steffe said...

Interesting old castle. Thanks for the info in the comment.

Jackie said...

Wow, I bet that's seen a few battles in its time!

JM said...

That balcony(?) is just wonderful and the whole castle is very original.

Great that this old castle was rebuilt. It's so horrible what Germans during the WWII have done. We can build a brighter future.

I like the angle! And the place, too..it has a mood:)

Jilly said...

Beautiful photograph of this wonderful castle. Love the angle you've taken it. Quite magical.

Tash said...

Really dramatic! Excellent photograph. I enjoyed looking at the previous photos too. I like all the different angles and changing seasons.
