    Bielsko-Biała
    The origins of the Castle of Bielsko-Biała date from the Piast dynasty, but it owes its present eclectic appearance to the Sułkowski family, who were its owners from the middle of the 18th century to 1945. Nowadays, the castle houses collections of the Bielsko-Biała Museum. During the visit to the castle we can experience the past elegance and learn more about the history of the city, admiring old and contemporary art, and even listen to good music.
