Nowy Wiśnicz Castle is located in the village of Stary Wiśnicz in southern Poland. This castle was originally built in 1397 and has had changes to its structure over the centuries.
It is a wonder to behold all by itself, but you get a guided tour of the inside where not only are there displays of the rooms, but also sculptures by Czesław Dźigaj. Czesław Dźigaj created over 80 monuments to Pope John Paul II that are displayed around Poland. In addition he has created carved doors for some of the churches in Poland.
Students of architecture have created replicas of elaborate pieces of architecture that are also on display. The furniture displayed is fantastic along with other works of art. One room holds numerous models of castles from the area.
It is not that far from Kraków & I would recommend paying this castle a visit.
I have been doing genealogy research since 2002 & have worked full time as a Professional Genealogist since 2008. I specialize in Polish and American-Canadian Genealogy. As a member of APG, I was the 2010/2011 President of the New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG). I have Certificates of Completion for studies in "Foundations of Forensic Genealogy" and "Advanced Forensic Genealogy Techniques". I have been a volunteer librarian at the local Family History Center, and a genealogy research consultant at “Ask the Expert” Ancestry Road Shows. I have traveled to Poland numerous times & researched in churches and archives. At conferences and special events, you may find me dressed up in my Sherlock Holmes outfit, or my Kujawy (the folk costume from the region in Poland where my ancestors came from).
