Ducal Tower in Siedlęcin

Welcome to the website of the Ducal Tower in Siedlęcin – one of the most important medieval monuments in Poland.
For over 700 years, our tower has been standing near Jelenia Góra in the picturesque Bóbr Valley.

The Ducal Tower in Siedlęcin was erected on the initiative of Duke Henry I of Jawor in the years 1313-1315 and is one of the largest towers of this type in Central Europe. The oldest wooden ceilings in Poland have been preserved there, while in the Great Hall on the second floor you can admire the only medieval paintings in the world (preserved in situ) with the legend of Sir Lancelot of the Lake – one of the legendary knights of the Round Table.
