One of the biggest fortresses in Europe, the Teutonic Knights Castle plays host to a half million visitors a year. We were on the train travelling to Gdansk, so we got a very quick view of it as we were approaching our destination. The castle was started in 1274 , if you can wrap your head around that one. It has a long history of being occupied by a variety of conquorers...and then it was heavily damaged by war...but restored in 1961 after years of work to bring it back to what you see today.
IF YOU TRAVEL BY CAR TO GDANSK, YOU SHOULD TRY TO MAKE THE STOP AT MARLBORK FOR A VISIT TO YET ANOTHER WORLD HERITAGE LIST SITE IN POLAND.
- Pros:Spectacular architecture
Think you would have what it takes to get over those walls and break into the castle? hmmmm.... This is a pretty... more travel advice
