Bolkow Castle is situated on the top of a high cliff above the river Raging Neisse.
According to the legend a guardhouse was built at the top of the hill already in the ninth century. It was probably a stone tower surrounded by wooden houses, it burned in the thirteenth century. The first mention of the castle is dated back to 1277, the castle was built of basalt slate, it was erected by Boleslaw II the Bald, Duke of Legnica. Its purpose was to protect the roads leading through the Sudetes massif from Czech to the Baltic Sea.

Pieknie wyglada zamek na tle czystego, blekitnego nieba, a znaki nadchodzacej wiosny na pierwszym planie dopelniaja obrazu.

Bonjour, cher Ryszard,
Ce château féodal fait belle figure sur cette motte et domine les éventuels attaquants (il y a fort longtemps).
Très intéressante composition historique.

Today both of us show a castle, but they look quite different. This one looks very romantic and inspiring and I like very much the green tones of the trees covering the slope below the castle. The light and colours are generally beautiful.

The castle with its imposing ramparts is very well placed in the frame and make an impressive focal point set against the saturated blue sky. I like the contrast offered by the nicely illuminated greenery in the bottom part of the composition.

Bardzo fajnie pokazales ten zamek.
Drzewa na pierwszym planie ladnie prowadza wzrok do tej budowli.
Dobry, kadr, kolorystyka i swiatlo.
