About location

A royal castle from the turn of the 13th and 14th century, towering over the town of Chęciny in the Świętokrzyski region near Kielce. It functioned as a royal residence and a state prison. In the middle of the castle courtyard, there is a hole – the remainder of the 100-meter deep well hewed in the rock. In the spring of 2013, castle revitalization has started. During the carried out archaeological examination, a tower was discovered; it may be the oldest element of the castle. Despite large-scale restoration works, the castle continues to be classified as a 'permanent ruin.'

In the vicinity, great battle scenes for the film 'Pan Wołodyjowski' were shot at the end of the 1960s.
