A fairytale castle that sits above the trees. The parking was easy (10 zloty), well laid out and a fairly even walk from there to the castle. Big pluses from the outset are plenty of places to sit and rest if you want. The main 'viewpoint' was a little crowded, but I simply waited and was then easily able to take several photographs.
It happened that the day I arrived (12/8) there was a re-enactment going on of a 1917 battle. Absolutely captivating, well staged and lots of fun. It was, of course, in polish so I missed out on some of the details, such as who was fighting whom - but to be honest that didn't detract much from the pure entertainment value.
The gardens and grounds are well laid out and extensive. If you follow the signposted route for the tour then you come to the terraces at the end of the tour of the house. Inside the house staff were very accommodating if I smiled and asked for help. I don't speak polish but one or two staff and visitors helped me and I now have a basic vocabulary of half a dozen words :)
Inside the house rooms and furniture were interesting. Not crammed full of objects - after all this place has suffered during the last 100 years and it is not trying to be a museum, rather a cultural centre. The rooms of heavy and ornate furniture for sale on the ground floor were a little disconcerting - I'm not sure whether these came from the house or are simply an antique dealer plying his trade. Certainly many of the pieces would need castle sized rooms to accommodate them.. Only a couple of places where people were selling souvenirs, books etc, one on the ground floor which is obviously the Castle shop and a handful of others on a floor above. Not a problem at all. A practical note, inside the entrance to the castle itself is the ticket office and to the right of that there is a free bag and buggy park.
I spent 6 hours there and did not see everything. I only gave up in the end because my legs had done enough!
