Silesian Trip

DSC6198

Travelling in Silesia, it is worth to visit some of the less known places like Gosciszow, Lomnica, Lubomierz, Nowogrodzie, Miedzylesie, Proszowka, Wojanow and Zelazno, all charming towns, castles and palaces. Many of the palaces and castles are still in ruin in this area, but some, like Lomnica have been restored. In Lomnica, painstakingly restored wall paintings, painted marbling and magnificent Silesian-Bohemian chandeliers give a lively impression of the splendour of the resurrected Baroque country castle. Proszowka stronghold was built in the 12th century. Until the end of the 14th century, it was in hands of Dukes of Swidnica. Wojanow palace is situated 4.3 miles from the centre of Jelenia Gora. It features a large park, a spa centre and a stylish hotel. Zelazno Palace, now a hotel is located in eighteenth-century palace in the Baroque style, by the road Klodzko – Bystrzyca Klodzka.
