Cieszyn – Poland

The Castle Hill

The Castle Hill. The oldest settlement in Cieszyn. From the late 10th century it functioned as a border stronghold of the Polish state and the seat of a Piast castellan, and from around 1290 was the capital of the Cieszyn Duchy. The stone Gothic castle (Upper Castle) was erected in the 14th century and demolished in 1647. After 1653 it served as the headquarters of the Teschen Chamber. The Habsburgs built a Hunting Castle here, which served them as a summer residence until 1918. (It currently houses Cieszyn Music School and the Silesian Castle of Art and Enterpris)
