Photo Gallery » Castles in Poland

Castles are very often located in very interesting places - high and inaccessible hills surrounded by valleys are perfect locations for defensive buildings. Photographing architecture from the bottom always involves the problem of distorting the perspective and also does not allow to show the landscape. Showing the castles from a bird's eye view is the best way to present the buildings together with their surroundings.
