    Just outside the castle, you'll find what appears to be the town center and this interesting church. It was built at the same time as the palace (14th century), also by Kazimierz the Great, and while I did not visit the church, there are some old frescoes that might be worth a look inside.

    Since times of the king Sigmund August (16th century) the castle has a quadrangle shape and a renaissance courtyard inside.

    The castle lost its significance since the attack of Swedish forces in the middle of 17th century. During Austrian occupation it was transformed in the barracks for soldiers.

    Last time it was been renovated after 1991. Now there are a museum, culture center and restaurant. The authorities want to run a hotel here soon.

    The king Kasimir the Great built in 14th century a huge gothic castle in the old volley of Wisla River nearby from Krakow. The castle was surrounded by settlement Niepolomice.

    Kasimir and next kings used the castle as a hunting headquarters when they shot dear and other animals in the Niepolomice Forest. There was also a place of knights conventions and arriving at the decisions in the matters important for all the Polish state.

    Maciek, Urszula and I all agreed that the food here wasn't too good. Originally, we tried to eat at the restaurant inside the castle complex, but they were catering a large party and were unable to accommodate us. So, we tried Wenecja, which means "Venice" in Polish. Hmmm? I never ate dry salmon in Venice!

    Favorite Dish: Urszula and I were both disappointed in the salmon and Maciek didn't like his food too much either, so I can't recommend this place at all.

    Three years ago, Niepolomice Castle underwent a complete restoration, and is now open for general tourist visits. It also houses a superb restaurant, and in addition medieval banquets with musical and jousting entertainment are held in the courtyard during summer months.

    Favorite Dish: Roast wild boar - fresh from the nearby forest - you won't find this in many other parts of Europe.

    Favorite thing: The town of Niepolomice lies about 25 kilometers from the Krakow's center. To get there the best convenient will be of course your own car, but there is also public transport and many small buses of privat carrier. You can reach the town through Wieliczka or Nowa Huta District of Krakow (where the great steel factory stands).
