Castle Tours : Poland
This is a site devoted to castles, the heritage of remote times, when solid fortifications helped people to stay in power, to defend Polish borders and last but not least, to protect themselves against robbers. What remains of the castles today are mainly "picturesque" structures of bricks or stones somewhere on the castle hills. Some castles became palaces, which - as a result of numerous reconstructions - do not resemble the original design at all.
