The castle was originally built in 1433. It had been damaged through the years but now, Based on the preserved plans of the fortress, found in the archives in Saint Petersburg, the residential part of the castle has been restored. Well worth a visit....

Newly rebuilt castle with a lot of history. It was completely destroyed and is being rebuilt true to history. You can either walk around see it from outside or take a guided tour which I recommend. There is a restaurant in case you're traveling hungry.

Famous castle, place where King Sigismund of Poland died (his Italian wife Queen Bona also stayed here), destroyed by the Russian army in the 19th century, now almost fully rebuilt. Really good restaurant - haute cuisine!

Fascinating history, told by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. A place worth visiting. The entrance fee is about $3 per person which includes about 30 min guided tour.
