Today's Castle: Ogrodzieniec, Poland

In Silesia. Oldest part dates to the 13th century, most to the 14th. Destroyed in 1665 by invading Swedes, but later rebuilt and occupied until the early 1800s.

Ogrodzieniec is part of a chain of 25 castles on hilltops in southern Poland known as the “The Trail of the Eagles’ Nests”, Szlak Orlich Gniazd in Polish.
