The Castle Party Festival, the biggest freak show in the Middle & Eastern Europe, is set to take place on July 28 - August 1st 2010.
The festival has a long history — it has been hosting the major stars of dark independent since 1994.
The Bolkow Castle was built during the reign of Bolko I. It was rebuilt several times afterwards, getting to its final “version” in the 16th century.
In all historical descriptions of the castle, its military meaning is underlined. But it was a cultural centre at the some time. It attracted people connected with art: painters, sculptors and architects. It was also a place where Polish, German & Czech people mixed. Thanks to them this specific silesian culture appeared.
In 1995 the Bolkow Castle Knight came into being. Its goal is to remind & spread the tradition of the ancestors.
