Bedzin Castle Title Pic

Bedzin Castle began in the 11th Century as a wooden fort near a trading village along the southwestern border of the Kingdom of Poland. It was built as a military outpost to defend the border and was upgraded to a stone fortress in the 14th Century during the reign of Casimir the Great.

The castle consists of a stone tower at the top of a hill. A small courtyard features a five story square tower and an attached stone building. A small gatehouse connects to a ring wall enclosing a long entry ramp which runs around the entire castle.

My reconstruction of Bedzin Castle is 25 inches long, 22 1/2 inches wide (80 x 72 studs) and is about 23 inches high.
