Grodziec Castle castle located in Lower Silesia, on top of the hill of the same name. It was built on the basalt, volcanic, steep hill at an altitude of 389 m above sea level.
The first mention of a medieval fortified castle is from 1159. In the years 1522 - 1524 the castle was rebuilt in the Renaissance style, to the north and south were erected two towers. During the 30-year war, in 1633, a large part of the castle was destroyed by fire and remained a ruin until 1800. Progressively the castle was renovated and made available to the public. In the castle were realized many movies: Polish, Swedish, Belgian and Russian.

un castello imponente, le proporzioni con gli alberi sono impressionanti.
Ottimo taglio verticale, i tetti rossi contrastano benissimo con gli altri colori.

bellissima foto dalla composizione impeccabile e dai colori ancor più brillanti e piacevoli.
Nitidezza di altissimo livello ed un soggetto assai gradevole.
Complimenti per l'ottima ripresa.
Ciao e buona domenica

after yesterday's post was hoping for a close up of this castle, and here it is. It looks magnificent and this POV does it full justice. Amazing textures and gloriously imposing. Superb!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

A very fine photo with superb colours and light. The wall and tower are beautiful and the sharpness almost makes me feel the roughness of the stones. When I saw the word "Swedish" in your note I expected, as usual, to find that Swedish troops had destroyed and looted this castle, so I was surprised to find out that it had been used for movies. That is more peaceful.

Very nice captureof this castle in Zagradno.
Perfect pov and very good pictorial geometry.
The orange tip of the tower creates a perfect eyecatching effect.
TFS and best regards

This interesting old tower is well placed in the picture. The red roof adds a strong eye-catcher. Many good details and an interesting note as well. Excellent!
