 +==== Content ====
 +
 +The castle is a late-Renaissance building. To get there you have to go through the gate built in the second half of the eighteenth century and farm courtyard, from which a bridge decorated with stone statues of saints John of Nepomuk, John the Baptist, Anthony and Florian leads to the castle. Four-winged castle with a Renaissance courtyard in the middle and arcaded galleries impresses everyone. The beauty of Renaissance architecture reminds the Wawel castle in Cracow.
 +
 +The Castle has played a significant role in the history of Opole Silesia. It was the residence of the local dukes. The walls of the castle have seen and heard a lot. And many things happened here. If you listen closely to the silence of the castle, its walls will tell you many interesting stories. To this day, people tell a legend saying that a tunnel connects the castle with the parish church. Is it true? We do not know…
 +
 +Restoration works are in progress and the aim is to restore former glory of this  residence. A conference center, a hotel, a restaurant and a museum are planned to be located in the castle.
