Kowalska Tower (Baszta Kowalska) - castle ruins from the 14th century. Built with funds from King Casimir the Great (Kazimierz Wielki).
Only so much is left of the castle Sącz after World War II.
Until World War II on the hill above the river Dunajec stood the royal castle. During World War II, Germany arranged in the castle ammunition depot. At the end of the war there was a danger that Germany blast the whole city before they leave.
Two men got into the castle, and blew the whole amunicę and bombs, saving the city. Unfortunately, these two brave soldiers also died.
