Later, at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries, was in the hands of Stanislaw Stadnicki. Destroyed at the beginning of of the 17th century and build again from... More

Nice castle. Take the audio tour. There are many great things to see around Poland and if you're in the area, this is a good stop. Not sure that I would make a special trip for this one, but if you're within a couple hours, you should go. Nice to be able to tour the inside.

Łancut Castle is a fortified baroque complex located in the little town called Łancut, in the southeast part of Poland, near the border with Ukraine. It is a big and very beautiful palace surrounded by a very nice park, which I recommend visiting in autumn due to the colour of trees: amazing! It is very beautiful walking and you can... More

I was surprised how nice that trip was! Beautiful castle complex with lots of attractions on the way. The museum is MANDATORY. For me it was kinda like small Versailles ;) No, really it's worth seeing. Gardens are also splendid. So us the garage with a lot of carriages. Some decent food can be found along the way.

A stunning castle surrounded by beautiful gardens and park. The audio-guided tour is very detailed and much better than the tour with a real guide (I have done both). Definitely with to visit.

Fast thinking by the custodian allowed Lancut Castle to escape the normal loot, pillage, and burn fate at the hands of the Russian "liberators" in 1944. There are numerous well restored rooms to visit. We opted for the audio guides which had a lot of well presented information. However, they were finicky, often not registering the talk with the location... More

Dont miss out this place, it's definetely worth a detour! castle feels very authentic, the audio guide is world class quality and the place makes you really feel how people lived in the 18-19th century (well at least noble people...). great gardens as well

Very nice castle within a great park, one can enjoy a good walk contemplating the castle. Very old trees and an orangerie. You can visit the castle although you have to pay and you can also enjoy a meal in the castle restaurant.
