Łomnica, Lower Silesian Voivodeship

"The history of the Castle and Manor of Lomnitz goes far back into the Middle Ages, and in the course of centuries they changed owners several times. Between 1835 and 1945 the property belonged to the von Küster family, after World War II the Castle was seized and the Polish state became the new owner. After the fall of the Iron Curtain the family was able to purchase the Great Castle back, which had fallen into ruins and slowly new life awoke within the old walls."

Topacz Castle, Lower Silesian Voivodeship

Quote:
"According to Aleksander Duncker, a German editor, bookseller and writer, who published a list of country manors, palaces and residences of Prussian gentry, the housing-fortified tower was built by the Templers in order to ensure safety of travelling merchants and their goods. Unfortunately, he does not provide the date of its building nor transfer of the mansion to secular owners. The history of the facility, with the first building being a two-storage housing-fortified tower with a rectangular base surrounded by a moat, reaches the beginning of 14th century. In the beginning of 16th century the tower was heightened with one storage with a viewing balcony at the top.

In 1586-1600 the mansion was owned by Heinrich von Vogt and his successor who built a Renaissance building in 1618. In 19th century the facility was enlarged again on the North-West side with a building and the tower was heightened again with another storage. Between 1638 and 1659 the mansion was owned by the Von Waldau family and between 1699 and 1741 by Hans Christian von Roth, whose daughter Charlotte Eleonora (her portrait by the castle is in the King’s Palace in Wrocław) contributed the village with a mansion as a dowry to the Köningsdorf family. In 1870 Duke von Köningsdorf sold the mansion to the founder of the sugar company Rath Schöller&Skene, who owned it until the Second World War. No building was destroyed during the war. After the war a part of facilities was occupied by a reformatory whose boarders worked at setting up of rice fields in the Agricultural Holding Lasowa. The 1980’s was an attempt to modernize and restructure the mansion by agricultural centres. In 1996 the Agricultural Property Agency of State Treasury sold the facility to Edward Ptak from Wrocław, however, he did not undertake any repair works.

The 2002 was another beginning of the splendour of the facility when it was bought by Mr. and Mrs. Kurzewski, repaired and developed to be an exclusive hotel-conference facility. First guests of Zamek Topacz were hosted in 2011, offering luxurious accommodation, a restaurant, 4 conference rooms, Motorization Museum, 50-hectare park and many more attractions for individual and business guests, families and groups.

The centermost tower is the town hall. On the left there are turrets of the barbicane. Plus some two dozens of the wall towers.

Religious and political capitals of Poland in the late 10th century according to Thietmar, Gallus Anonymous and Cosmas of Prague:
- Gniezno
- Krakow
- Wroclaw
- Poznan
- Wloclawek
- Giecz
- Sandomierz
- Kolobrzeg

"Chronicon Thietmari" (written between 1012 and 1018)
Quote:
Bolizlavus (...) Nec mora, fecit ibi archiepiscopatum [Gnesin], ut spero legitime, sine consensu tamen prefati presulis, cuius diocesi omnis haec regio subiecta est; committens eundem predicti martyris fratri Radimo eidemque subiciens Reinbernum, Salsae Cholbergiensis aecclesiae episcopum, Popponem Cracuaensem, Iohannem Wrotizlaensem, Vungero Posnaniensi excepto; factoque ibi altari sanctas in eo honorifice condidit reliquias.

"Annales seu Cronicae incliti regni Poloniae" (written between 1113 and 1116)
Quote:
De duce Popelone. Dictus Chosisco.

Erat namque in civitate Gneznensi, quae nidus interpretatur Sclavonice, dux nomine Popel, duos filios habens, qui more gentilitatis ad eorum tonsuram grande convivium praeparavit, ubi plurimos suorum procerum et amicorum invitavit.

(...)

De magnificentia et potentia Bolezlavi Gloriosi.

Plura itaque sunt et maiora gesta Bolezlavi, quam a nobis possint describi, vel etiam nudis sermonibus enarrari. Nam quis arithmeticus satis certo numero ferratas eius acies valeat computare, nedum etiam describendo victorias et triumphos tantae multitudinis recitare? De Poznan namque mille trecenti loricati milites cum quatuor milibus clipeatorum militum, de Gneznen mille quingenti loricati et quinque milia clipeatorum, de Wladislau castro octingenti loricati et duo milia clipeatorum, de Gdech trecenti loricati et duo milia clipeatorum; hii omnes fortissimi et ad bella doctissimih magni Bolezlavi tempore procedebant. De aliis vero civitatibus et castellis et nobis longus et infinitus labor est enarrare, et vobis forsitan fastidiosum fuerit hoc audire. Sed ut vobis fastidium numerandi praetermittam, numerum vobis sine numero multitudinis anteponam. Plures namque habebat rex Bolezlaus milites loricatos, quam habeat nostro tempore tota Polonia clipeatos; tempore Bolezlavi totidem in Polonia fere milites habebantur, quot homines cuiusque generis nostro tempore continentur.

(...)

Boleslaus vero, in Wratislaw, et in Cracovia, et in Sandomir, sedes regni principales obtinuat.

"Chronica Boëmorum" (written between 1119 and 1125)
Quote:
At that time, with the most noble duke of Poland removed from this light and his sons Boleslaw and Wladyslaw still in infancy and taking milk at the breast, Kazimierz was the one hope of salvation for the Poles, all fleeing to different places in wretched flight. Noticing this, Duke Bretislav - in the fourth year of his reign as duke - thought it would be best for him not to miss an opportunity to damage his enemies, more precisely to revenge the injuries Duke Mieszko had once inflicted on the Czechs. As quickly as he was able, having taken counsel with his men. Bretislav ordered them to invade [Poland]. Sending throughout the province of all of Bohemia a collar of twisted cork as a sign of his command, he immediately pronounced a terrible sentence: that, once the signal was given, whoever came out to camp sluggishly would know without a doubt that he would be hanged by such a collar in the gallows. They gathered into one in an instant - in the twinkling of an eye and to a man - and Bretislav entered the land of Poland, widowed of its prince, and invaded its enemy.

Like a huge storm, he raged, raved, and leveled everything. Thus he devastated villages with murders, rapine, and fires, and broke into fortifications by force. Entering from the summit, he overthrew their metropolis at Cracow [Krakov] and seized its goods. He even uncovered in the treasury old treasures stolen from ancient dukes, namely, an infinite quantity gold and silver. He set fire to the rest of the burgs and destroyed them to the ground.

When they came to the castle of Giecz [castrum Gdec], the castellans, together with those villagers who had taken refuge there, unable to endure the duke's assault, came out to meet him. Bearing a golden rod, which was the sign of surrender, they humbly asked that Bretislav transfer them peacefully to Bohemia with their cattle and the rest of their belongings. The duke, acquiescing to their requests, later led them into Bohemia and gave them not a small part of the forest called Cernin. He established one overseer and judge from among them and decreed that both they and their descendants should live forever under the law which they had had in Poland. They are called "Hedcane" to this day, the name derived from the burg.

Not far from the aforesaid burg [Giecz], they came to the metropolis of Gniezno [Gnezden], strong by virtue of its location and the defenses in front of the walls but easily captured by enemies because few citizens were inhabiting it. At that time, a most precious treasure lay there, in the basilica of the holy Mary, ever-virgin Mother of God, namely, the body of the most blessed martyr, Adalbert. The Czechs soon took control of the burg without Mars [i.e. without a fight], and with great joy went in the entrance of the sacred church. All other booty neglected, they demanded that only the precious mass of the holy body, which suffred on Christ's behalf, be given to them.

(...)

The burg of Wroclaw [urbs Wratizlav] and other burgs were returned by Duke Bretislav to the Poles on the condition that they pay five hundred marks of silver and thirty of gold annually both to him and to his successors.
* Metropolis, which in Cosmas' usage implies either political or ecclesiastical pre-eminence

Rzemien castle

The fortification is said to have been built by Stanisław Tarnowski in 1526.
In 1616 the castle fortification ownership passed to the noble family of ‘Lubomirski’, who in 1620-1640 modernised it with the most up-to-date defences.
