The New Castle, Grodno

#10 of 15 in Historic Sites in Grodno
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.

  • In front of the old castle, on the neighboring hill, the New Castle is located on the slopes of the Rhine. It was built in the 18th century by Augustus III Sasa after the destruction of the first during the northern War. The last Sejm of the Republic took place here. After the war, rebuilt in the style of socrealist. Nowadays it houses a historical museum. I did not tossed on my knees.

  • Seeing both the New Castle and Old Castle is very neat, and worthwhile to check out on a visit to Grodno.  more »

  • 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
