When you are visiting Lower Silesia (e.g. Church of Peace in Jawor) it's great idea to see Bolkow castle. The old castle on the top of the hill with amazing views. And... That's it! It is great to see how medieval castles were built and...More

Bolkov Castle is within the village of Bolkov and accessible by walking and driving. There is a parking lot and it cost about $6 to get in.

It is indeed an old beauty, if you are in area it's very much worth seeing! It won't take much of your time but you will be surprised by the castle, especially the view from the tower.

Well maintained medieval castle, with a nice view over the region. There are some steeper passageways to climb, but it is totally worth it. It is in the town, so everything is close, some nice restaurants, small grocery store, parking place at the entrance. Well...More

The castle is a nice visit, however there is not much more to do in the village Bolków (or it must be thew Biedronka- supermarket). The entrace is 7 zlotych (1.75 euro) and the views are nice. You can buy souvenirs there and have a...More
