Castle

The castle in Gola Dzierżoniowska, charmingly located between the Krzyżowe Hills and Gumińskie Hills, is a valuable Renaissance monument.

It is one of the rare buildings erected in the sixteenth century that still retains its Renaissance character. Minor alterations included only extension works involving stylised neo-Gothic defence walls and battlements in the nineteenth century. Thanks to its authenticity, it is an extremely valuable testimony of Renaissance architecture.

The castle survived the war without any major damage. Its last owners, the von Prittwitz und Gaffron family, were forced to leave their estate. Since then the castle gradually fell into disrepair. Abandoned, it waited for better times that came at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Beginning in 2000, the castle was subject to intense works lasting 13 years that aimed at restoring its former glory while keeping the original qualities ​​of the building. The shape of the roof was restored along with magnificent Renaissance gables. Windows and portals were also renovated.

All works were performed with great care, preserving the historical shape of the building, its spatial distribution and essential structural elements designed in the sixteenth century. The materials used have preserved the qualities of the structure, due to which the panorama and external appearance correspond to the historical sources. The renovations performed and collaboration with local residents contributed to Uroczysko Siedmiu Stawów obtaining a second life. Buildings in the restored historical spatial distribution have gained new functions. Many years of work have enabled their adaptation to needs of a luxury hotel.

Because of this the castle in Gola Dzierżoniowska has become a unique combination of history and modernity.

Reconstruction

Vaults in the basement and the ground floor level as well as in the north wing were also restored, together with the old defence wall. The barrel vault of the former kitchen, the vault of the ground floor and gate passages were also reconstructed. There are also two well-preserved fireplaces made of stone that once were used as the source of heating and room decorations. The upward extension in the shape of ornamental volutes stands out in this unique architectural design. Today, the undoubted attractions are the castle’s courtyard and the western terrace overlooking the area.

The real masterpiece of construction was the reconstruction of the missing parts of the main portal above the entrance gate. This portal is the most valuable work of the Renaissance architectural sculpture in Silesia. Pilaster-shaped door jambs are supported on plinths with decorated capitals. Additionally, the portal is crowned with a beautiful triangular tympanum. One of its demonstrated themes is a carefully designed floral ornament on the archivolt. The lower part consists of three triglyphs. They contain an inscription with psalms written in tiny capital letters in German. The upward extension of the entablature, closed by a prominent cornice, consists of sixteen coats of arms arranged in two rows. Next to them are the names of family members and their ancestors. Also visible are religious symbols, including Faith and Hope, psalms and a motto on the fragility of life Hodie mihi cras tibi.
