Poland, Nedica – a village with a medieval castle and picturesque surroundings

Summer holidays are an ideal time for family trips, so today we invite you to one of them. Our goal will be the Polish village of Niedzica, located in the Spis region, near the border with Slovakia in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship.

Neditsa is located at a distance of about 2 kilometers from the state border, and almost 7 km from the nearest Slovak city – Spisska Old All. If you were going here through Poland, it is 2 km from New Targ, and 75 km from Krakow Krakow. Thanks to the construction of the dam and the interesting sights in the surrounding area, the village has become a popular tourist destination.

Castle

At first, a bit of history. Although the first written record dates back to 1320, this village was inhabited a long time ago. Originally it was a Hungarian village (populated exclusively by the Slovak ethnic group), but after 1945 it was finally annexed to Poland. The biggest tourist attraction is undoubtedly the Neditsky Castle, located on the shores of Lake Chorshtyn at an altitude of 560 meters.

Nedice Castle (formerly also called Dunajec Castle) was an important medieval watchman of the borderland. It was built in 1320-1326. on the foundation of an ancient dam, and its task was to guard the trade route between the former Hungary and Poland. The castle is relatively well preserved and offers visitors a viewing of rooms with exhibitions documenting the life of the aristocracy and the history of the estate. In addition, you will see here a prismatic tower, a chapel, residential areas or a beautiful courtyard with a well. During the tour, you may also learn the legend of the condemnation of Yanoshik, the wonderful inhabitants of the Peruvian Indian Inca family, or the films that were shot here. An additional bonus of this excursion will be a wonderful view of the surroundings. After completing the tour, be sure to also visit the nearby 19th century barn.

Castle

To complete the picture, we must say that since 2014 the castle has been part of the independent settlement Niedzica-Zamek.

In addition to the castle, the town also boasts the Church of St. Bartholomew in 1320, which contains rare sacred works of art or Jewish writing with tombstones written in Hebrew (XIX-XX century). In the vicinity is also the tourist village and campsite Glade Sosna, which, in addition to accommodation and meals, also offers a small ski center, a miniature park, a bathing beach, a cable complex or a water port, from where you can take cruise trips along the Sromovsky Plotinus or Chorshtynsky reservoir.
