One of the most picturesque of the Polish castles towers between high rocks over Olsztyn near to Częstochowa. It is one of the famous Eagle’s Nests of the king Kasimir the Great and comes from XIV century. Comming to Olsztyn by night from the side of Częstochowa you can a see fabulous view! Yes, still this is Poland :-) There is seen the whole character of the visited by us Kraków-Częstochowa Upland. From the walls of the castle you can see the Luminous Mount Monastery as well as the Częstochowa Steel Mill.
Taking the pictures of the castle by evening we were catching each single and possible ray of the Sun, which was covered by clouds almost all the time. Luckily weather let us see and photograph something unusual! Early morning about 3:00 o’clock a.m. there happened an absolutely unique astronomical event – total Moon eclipse. It took place on 28 September 2015 and the area of the Castle in Olsztyn as well as beautiful but cold weather made perfect circumstances for this occassion.
