Besiekiery Castle Ruins

Besiekiery, Poland

These beautiful castle ruins are nestled in the Polish countryside. 


Built during the 15th century, this once proud castle stood as a defensive structure and military stronghold in a time of great violence.

The castle is located in the village of Besiekiery. The ruins stand alone on a small island surrounded by a moat that now looks more like a garden pond than a threatening obstacle. The bridge that crosses the moat and allows visitors to access the inside of the fortification is currently closed. However, there is open access to view this structure from the outside. It is also free to visit.

From the outside, one can see the destruction of invading forces and the reconstruction by wealthy elites through the ages.
