The Bobolice Castle is a 14th-century royal castle in the village of Bobolice, Poland. The complex is located within a semi-mountainous highland region called the Polish Jura.
The castle in Bobolice was built by King Casimir III the Great in the middle of the 14th century, probably in place of an earlier wooden structure.
The castle was a part of the defence system of royal strongholds protecting the western border of Poland on the side of Silesia.
In 1370, Louis I the Great granted the castle to Władysław Opolczyk, Duke of Opole, after becoming King of Poland, as a prize for his support of the king’s dynastic plans.
