Hypothetical recontruction, basements & oven

Puck Castle

It is not a castle or even its relics, but an archeological site. Unfortunately the castle was take down in 19th c.

The Puck Castle was built on the verge of 14th-15th century by the Crusaders and quickly becomes one of the centers of their administration. After Poland regained the Gdansk Pomerania in 1454 until 1795 the castle was a residence of the royal administrator for the region. A huge enlargenent in 16th c. made the castle an improtant element of Polish sea-defency policy.

From the 1991 there are archeologistical works there. Till now the academics found between others basements of the first castle building, fragments of the old gate and the oven used in castle's baths.
