Ravishing as Kraków is, doesn’t it make a pleasant change to escape the pissed-up stags and earnest novelists in-the-making. And this, you can easily do for just fifteen kilometers north stands Zamek Korzkiew.
Forming part of the Eagle’s Nest trail of medieval castles, this 14th century fortification caps a small hill rising from the wintry mists, making an instant impression on all those that visit.
Centered around a small courtyard, this compact castle comes with four chambers, three of which feature their own crackling hearths and paintings of important-looking nobility.
Creaky and atmospheric, generous breakfasts make up for the lack of on-site restaurant, while the well-stocked wine cellar could have been born with ideas of fireside chats in the communal living area.
If your luck sticks, like in our case, you may even find yourself the sole resident of this gorgeous little jewel.
Ensconced in your own tower, you’ll be left feeling like Rapunzel.
