Castle Hunting Promnice


A forest, hunting residence of the dukes of Pszczyna dating back to 1765 is located in a charming spot at the Paprocany Lake. The name Promnice originates from the name of the Promnitz family, the founders. It owes its enchanting appearance to its alteration by the Hochbergs in 1868. For over 200 years, it served as a place of accommodation during hunting time for subsequent families of Pszczyna land owners. It was also a favourite place for their wives and children. Here, they had freedom and chose not to wear long skirts or jewellery. Duchess Daisy von Pless wrote about it: ‘I always loved Promnice. It is small and architecturally picturesque (…) It overlooks a beautiful lake, surrounded by magnificent trees.’ The small castle is also a rare non-sacral building with stained-glass windows showing coats of arms of the owners of Pszczyna land – the Promnitzs, the Anhalts and the Hochbergs. The sculpture of St Hubert – the patron of hunting - stands in the front of it. It has the face of the last member of the Hochberg family – John Henry XI
