Revitalisation of the Golczewo Castle Hill


Activities were undertaken in order to revitalise a historical site in Golczewo and to integrate it in the local community. This project has contributed to enhancing the tourism potential of this Polish town.


The long and rich history of the town Golczewo was the starting point of this project. Its main focus has been on the hill with the castle, which dates back to the 13th century. The project initiators recognised the unique value and potential of this space for attracting tourists and serving as a place for bringing together the local population. There was also a clear need identified to prevent further degradation of this historical site.


The main objective was to increase the attractiveness of Golczewo and to integrate the historical sites into the local community by establishing links with the city's rich history and creating a space where people could meet.

Main activities

Facilities were created for organising events on the castle hill. They consist of a portable stage for performing arts, as well as sound and lighting equipment. Additionally, benches were purchased for spectators and a machine for making souvenir coins. The castle hill area has undergone revitalisation and got upgraded through additional illumination of the castle tower.

Results & Benefits

Thanks to the project Golczewo gained in attractiveness, which has increased the number of tourists. The castle hill has become a popular space for organising cultural events, and promoting the rich heritage of the area. This has in turn contributed to a greater awareness and appreciation among the local population.

Lessons learnt

The project helped local population to re-discover the value of their historical heritage and to treat is a resource to use and maintain for current and future activities.
