The Old Castle in Grodno was opened after restoration12-November-2021
Reconstruction of one of the oldest castles in Belarus began in 2017 and is being carried out in several stages. Now one of them has been completed: the erection of the entrance and middle towers, the restoration of the fortress wall with a gallery between the towers, the construction of a measuring hut and a kamenitsa.
These premises house a new exposition with interactive zones, which will tell about the history of both the castle itself and the Grodno region as a whole. Among the exhibits, located in seven halls, there are many unique ones, including archaeological finds from the Castle Hill. A medieval printing house will also work in the museum, where you can get acquainted with the technology of creating engravings. The castle also opened a observation deck with views of the historic city center.
You can see the Old Castle during the excursion - «Grodno - city of Lithuanian princes and kings of Poland».
