Built in the fourteenth century, this fortified Gothic castle has experienced many an incarnation over time, from a bishop's hunting lodge to an evangelical church to a prison. But fear not, these days Reszel Castle is hardly a place you'd want to escape from. With only 21 rustic (and comfy) rooms and suites adorned with hand-crafted furnishings, you'll usually feel as if you have the place to yourself. As for those guests you do encounter, many come for the castle's art scene, which includes the on-site Gallery of Modern Art and ongoing Fine Arts Days showcasing fine arts, music, literature, dance and theater. Located in a picturesque market town, the castle is also popular with local foodies, who frequent the house restaurant for signature specialties such as mutton dumplings and roast pikeperch with almonds.
