Fantastic rock formations, which were used to construct the castle, make the majestic ruins even more picturesque.

“Suchy Połeć”, which can roughly be translated as “Big Piece of Bacon”, also called “Suchy Palec” – “Dry Finger”, is a distinctive rock formation near the center of Podzamcze. In this region, there are German bunkers from the Second World War. They were part of the so called Ostwall, a fortification line whose task was to prevent the Red Army from invading the areas of Upper Silesia. Although the Soviet-German fighting in the nearby areas was fierce, the bunkers themselves did not play a bigger role, however.
