The castle of Nowy Sacz and its guardian

It is not exactly a castle but rather ruins of it. The castle was blown by German soldiers during the World War II. After the end of the war, bastille (Baszta Kowalska) was rebuilt.

The small knight appeared in the front of the ruins last year. It is connected with the legend about the castle and the mysterious spring. Usually the knight pees but unfortunately it is currently freezing cold and he has to wait for the spring:) He quickly became tourist attraction, even newly-weds come there and take photos with him.

The photo was taken during our yesterday's walk.
