Photographer's Note

"The Niedzica Castle which is also known under the name of Dunajec Castle, was erected on the site of former stronghold surrounded by earthen walls, in approx. 1325. The castle had numerous masters, and by 1943 it was owned by the Hungarian family of Salomons.

The historical Niedzica Castle dating of 13th-14th century, lies on the hill, in distance of 300 m upstream the river, counting from the axis of the dam, and approx. 30 m above the upper water level. The hill is built of limestone saddled on shale and marl, much below the current bed of the Dunajec river. The studies and analyses showed that the thick limestone bank forming the rock are resistant to weathering, and provide secure foundation for the castle, in spite of the block splits."
