The New Castle, Grodno

2.8
Polish kings of the 18th century spent their summers at The New Castle. The castle forms an architectural complex with the old castle set on the other side of an arch bridge. The castles are home to the city’s historical and archaeological museum. The museum features about 7,000 artifacts, including artwork, old printed and handwritten books, weapons, icons, and religious items. Look for the relief of a Soviet coat of arms on the pediment of the main entrance. A sculpture of a mythical chthonic creature perched on the main gate represents a woman with a lioness body carrying a little boy on her back.

  • Disappointing. Honestly, don't waste your time and money to go inside (nothing to see). You even have to pay extra if you want to go inside the shop...
  • The museum is thoroughly maintained with all artifacts well preserved and worth the visit . A stark difference from the Old Castle
