Ruiny z tych ruin zamku pozostało. Szkoda bo jeszcze chwilę i całkiem zniknie

A nice place which is about to get renovated soon. If you feel like coming there you won't be disappointed, it got quite nice views.

Fajne miejsce ale strasznie zaniedbane i zapomniane, wójt mugłby coś zadziałać w tej sprawie

Zamek na górce. Za parkingiem na drodze nr. 15 w Kurzętniku skręcamy w prawo w polną drogę i w górę. Dojedziemy do polnego parkingu, przez mostek i są ruiny zamku. Przed mostkiem jest tablica informacyjna opisująca owe miejsce. Jest legenda według której jest połączenie między zamkiem w Kurzętniku a pobliskim zamknie w Bratianie.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
