Korzkiew Castle

Korzkiew, Poland

The first castle in Korzkiew was erected in 1325 by Jan from Syrokomla. It was part of the 'trail of eagles nests', one of a chain of 14th century (reign of King Casimir) medieval castles that protected the north- western border of royal Krakow that went all the way to Czestochowa. The castle is being restored and currently houses a boutique hotel and a conference center-banquet hall.

Fantastic castle with various towers, stairs, balconies and historic rooms and halls, well furnished but partly under construction

Great visiting place, nice for a quick walk in the near park and forest area. Very interesting castle with rooms and spaces for rental - photoshoots, balls, family gatherings or so.

14th century castle which is being renovated and commercialized as a hotel and/or event-planning venue. Situated on a hill, bit far from Kraków. The surrounding and the building as a whole is really amazing but in some parts the clear architectural mis-match of the modern bricks and old stony walls can be visible. Interiors are though impressively decorated and nice overall ambiance. Friendly and welcoming staffs.

Beautiful. But should have a coffee or something there to drink.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
