The castle is situated in a picturesque park in western district of Wroclaw. It dates back to the 12th century, when it belonged to the Wrocław Piasts. The castle was destroyed in 1428, during the Hussite Wars. In the 16th century the castle was rebuilt in the Renaissance style on a plan of a square with round towers at the corners. In the 18th century the north and south wings were joined together forming the structure that exists today.
The castle suffered no damage during the warfare in 1945. The castle is today home to a cultural centre. Events include regular celebrations of a medieval festival for young people, a gallery and many exhibitions of works of young people.

Ahh! the light of a day in June, seems such a long way away in mid winter doesn't it? This is such a pristine and beautiful castle, and your capture does it full justice. Perfectly sharp and clear with an enticing POV. Exquisite!
Have a good week - Brian.

fajnie prezentujesz ten wroclawski zabytek. Zamek pieknie odnowiony, jest czym sie pochwalic, tylko turystow tu brak. Ladnie wyprostowana perspektywa, dobre kolory i kadr. Interesujace informacje.

questa tua è un piccolo gioiello di composizione, nitidezza, luminosità.
Il soggetto è splendido ed hai saputo valorizzarelo molto bene, anche grazie all'accorto uso del colore che appare aderente alla realtà senza forzature di alcun genere.
Un ottimo scatto per il quale mi complimento
Complimenti anche per le note molto precise.
Ciao e buona serata
