Editor's review

Although liable to become inundated with groups during the Summer season, Pieskowa Skala is one of the highlights of the Malopolska region. Set in a lush valley 40 minutes bus-ride from Cracow, the castle is an arresting, fairy tale concoction that was originally one of the 'Eagles Nests' that protected the region during the medieval era. Altered and expanded many times over the centuries, the castle boasts a princely gateway and courtyard, whilst inside there is a delightful exhibition of art and artefacts culled from the Royal Collection at Wawel. The rooms follow chronological themes, ranging through Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Biedermeier. Several are undergoing what seems like an eternal renovation, but it's worth the trip nonetheless.

Excellent spot for any wedding photographer or a destination wedding videographer. Filming a wedding in the castle produces amazing results. As an artistic wedding film team we can confirm it. Hope to return there soon. Thank you! Marry Me Studio - Artistic Wedding Films.

Chciałabym się pochwalić, że główną atrakcją na Zamku w Pieskowej Skale jest "Pan" który biega z bronią pod wpływem alkoholu po obiekcie i obraża turystów, bo ktoś dotknął murka i robi zdjęcia. Nie dość że się płaci za wstęp to jeszcze taka niemiła obsługa. (nic dziwnego jak się bierze ludzi pierwszych lepszych z ulicy). Nigdy się nie spotkałam z takim chamstwem a podróżuje po całym świecie. Rozumie że można zwrócić komuś uwagę w kulturalny sposób, a nie od razu jakimiś obraźnymi epitetami do turystów. I nigdy w życiu nikomu nie polecę tego miejsca. To jest po prostu jakieś nieporozumienie .

Beautifully preserved castle and grounds. Well worth the 10 zloty admission. Plan to spend at least 1/2 day to see the various rooms inside the castle as well as the castle grounds that a wonderful display of fauna set in the Ojcow National Park. It is hard to imagine that this beautiful area is only 1/2 hour from Krakow ... a "must see" for any visitor.
