Prudnik Castle was located in the defensive bend of the Prudnik river. It was built in 1255. It was founded a Czech knight Wok of Rosenberg.

The castle was destroyed in 1428 by the Hussites. After the end of the first Silesian War, Frederick the Great rebuilt the castle.

A fire on 27 August 1806 burnt the entire castle except of one tower called 'Wok's Tower', which is now the only remnant of the castle.

Entrance officially closed. However, there is no prohibition at the entrance. Access to the wooden part only via the general stairs. However, the views on the 3 sides of the world are even nice.

It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
