Photographer's Note

The castle in Krasiczyn, one of the greatest treasures of Renaissance-Mannerist architecture in Poland, is also one of the most beautiful castles in Europe.
It was built in the late 16th and early 17th century by Stanis³aw Krasicki and his son Marcin. The castle's two curtain walls are decorated with a lovely openwork attic. Four round towers stand at the corners - the Divine, Papal, Royal, and Noblemen's towers (their names symbolize the hierarchy of the world approved by the castle's founders, encompassing both this world and eternity). The castle courtyard, surrounded by arcades, offers a great view of extremely rare sgraffito murals presenting scenes from the bible, medallions with the busts of emperors, pictures of Polish kings, and hunting scenes.
