Welcome to Niedzica
Five kilometres northwest of Sromowce Wyżne-Kąty, Niedzica (signposted as 'Niedzica Zamek') is known for its castle. Perched on a rocky hill above the southeastern end of Czorsztyn Lake, the castle was built in the early 14th century to protect the Hungarian frontier, as this region marked the northern border of the Hungarian kingdom. It remained in Hungarian hands until the end of WWII. It was partially restored in the 1920s and again 50 years later, but it essentially looks the same as it did in the 17th century, managing to retain a graceful Renaissance shape.
