Not far from Przemyśl, in the village of Krasiczyn, in a picturesque park with exotic plants, there is one of the most charming castles in Poland – the Krasycki Castle, built between 1580 and 1631. This Renaissance-Baroque fortress impresses with its four exquisite towers: God’s Tower, Papal Tower, Royal Tower, Noble Tower. The castle walls are decorated with sophisticated decor in the sgraffito style. History shows that many kings and prominent personalities visited this magnificent place. We invite you to get acquainted with this unparalleled beauty.

Castle in Krasiczyn

Krasiczyn is a small village located in the Subcarpathian Voivodeship. It is located near the Polish-Ukrainian border. The town, charmingly situated in the Xiangnu basin, is dominated by a castle surrounded by a park and a moat, which was built in its original form at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Built on the initiative of Stanislav Krasytskyi in the Renaissance-Mannerist style, the institution still delights visitors after many reconstructions. The characteristic features of the castle are the courtyard and 4 different corner towers: Divine, Papal, Royal and Noble, which were supposed to reflect the eternal order and role of the Church, the king, the pope and the nobility. The last one is a noble one, crowned with a copy of the crown of King Sigismund III Vasa. The outer and inner walls of the castle are covered with sgraffito decorations, with a total area of ​​7,000 m².

History of the castle

The extremely colorful history of the castle – from the invasion of Russians and Cossacks to robberies and fires – seriously changed the original appearance of the building. The Polish primate Cardinal Adam Stefan Sapiega was born in the castle in Krasichyn, whose grandfather bought the castle in the 1830s. The Sapiega family introduced the custom of planting trees in the palace park after the birth of each child: an oak tree for a son, a linden tree for a daughter. These trees still grow today. The less fearful will be interested in the information that, according to legend, the White Lady can be found there at midnight. This is the ghost of Leon Sapieha’s daughter, who on the day of her wedding to a stranger, out of desperation for her true lover, threw herself from the tower straight into the yard.

It is also interesting that in 1940, Soviet cinematographers shot an anti-Polish film called “Wind from the East”, which justifies the invasion of the USSR into Poland on September 17, 1939. Nowadays, the castle houses a hotel and a restaurant. Some parts of the castle are open to visitors, so we invite you to get to know this unparalleled beauty.
