The article attempted to trace the history of the creation and conservation as well as changes in the location of modern portals in Grodno castle (Kinsburg). The turbulent history of their transfer, assembly and restoration is closely related to the history of the castle in the last 200 years. Research based on the analysis of archival materials from the 19th and 20th centuries, which, however, only partially capture the subject of the portals, were supplemented with an analysis of iconography and the results of field research conducted between 2019 and 2021 by a team from the Faculty of Architecture of the Wrocław University of Science and Technology.      The presented research results revealed the problem of determining the original location of several portals and the origin of their components.

This article encourages undertaking more extensive research and analysis of the details of window and door dressings in Grodno castle in Zagórze Śląskie.
