Located in the south part of Poland, about 20 km east of Nowy Targ, Niedzica medieval castle stands on a 300 m high hill, near the Dunajec River. The picturesque castle was built on the site of former stronghold between 1320 and 1325. For centuries the castle was a border-post between Hungary and Poland. The castle was enlarged in 1470 and was rebuilt in the Renaissance style at the end of the 16th century.
The castle consists of three main parts: the Gothic Upper Castle, the mainly Renaissance Middle castle and the Lower Castle. The castle functions as a museum, now. From the castle the views are spectacular over the neighbouring mountains and the river.
