  • The castle and the ruins are situated on a rather steep hill. From the side of Krzeszowice you can also get to it quite a narrow road, and worth it because there is quite a lot of parking. The castle has spectacular views of the whole area. This year is open on weekends from hours. 10. The possibility of guided tours at any time. Really worth it. You can see that the lady fascinates the story not only the castle itself, but the Lesser Poland. It is also evident that there is a lot going on in the castle and that the people involved in the building really depend on the nature of the place. There is only a sanitary facilities or a bar, a café. However, the wonderful views compensate for these disadvantages.

  • The ruins of Tenczyn Castle stand on the Castle Hill, which is an ancient extinct volcanic cone, in the village of Rudno OK. 24 km west of Cracow. It was originally a wooden castle built in 1319 and a little later the brick castle was erected, which was constantly expanding. The castle was the seat of the Tenczyński family, who in the 16TH century had overthrew the original Gothic building in a magnificent Renaissance mansion called the Little Wawel Castle. In 1656, the castle was burned by the Swedish and the attempt to rebuild it after the flood failed. In the middle of the 18TH century the building was abandoned and began to be destroyed. From Krakow It is easiest to get here by going to the A4 highway in the direction of Katowice. 20 km behind Krakow, heading to Alwerna and Krzeszowice. After reaching the roundabout, we will take the second exit to Rudno. In Rudnie we go to the street Chrzanowska, from which we move to the right guided by the signs leading to the castle. We can also enter the east side of the Castle Street and leave the car at the free parking lot in the woods at the foot of the castle Mountain and climb to it, reaching it to the chateau.
