At the top of the Choina hill, as if guarding the border between the Sowie and Walbrzyskie Mountains, rises the beautifully situated Grodno Castle. Its first owner was probably Bolko I, although there is no hard evidence for it. The fact is that, like other nearby castles, from the hands of the Piast dynasty it fell into the hands of the Czech Crown. When the knights’ families took the castle over, the gloomy fame of the robbers’ castle grew around it and stayed for over a hundred years. The further history of Grodno Castle was no less turbulent. The facility passed from hand to hand, was expanded, destroyed, burnt. Over time it lost its strategic importance.

After 1824, the castle was protected against further destruction, and subsequent generations have given it a tourist character.
