Mirov Castle in the sunset

Mirów castle was built by king Kazimierz the Great around the middle of the 14th century. Initially, the castle was only a stone watchtower that was subordinate to the nearby Bobolice Castle, which together formed a part of the defensive system known as the Eagles’ Nests.

 

In 2006 the Lasecki family – the current owners of the castles in Mirów and in Bobolice – commenced conservation works in the aim of rescuing this historic place. On commission by the Lasecki family Senator Jarosław W. Lasecki and his brother Dariusz Lasecki a series of studies was undertaken: archaeological, historical, stratigraphic, iconographic, and architectonic, on the basis of which, the most effective plans for the conservation of the ruin of Mirów were drawn up.
