PLEASE, STICK IT !
Favorite thing: On the reverse side of a FOTO/VIDEO sticker there is written - what a surprise - IN ENGLISH hehe:
"Please, stick it to a visible spot on your clothes".
Does it mean where? :-))) Any ideas?
I didn't find any suitable place on my clothes and they asked me a few times about the sign but when I replied that I had it they didn't want me to show it.
Btw I've heard German language there, no English.
FOTO VIDEO STICKER
Favorite thing: Hmm... if you want to take pictures/movies you are obliged to buy a special sticker (look at my picture).
WHERE to buy it?
- at the ticket office (KASA) - no information about it there (???)
- at the Museum Shop (Sklep Muzealny) located inside the Castle Museum: in the courtyard of the Middle Castle.
HOW MUCH is it?
10 PLN (= Polish zloty)
Check up to-date (real for tourists) daily courses in various cities in Poland:
"kupno" = buying, purchase
"sprzedaz" = sale
"Kursy srednie" = average course.

MAP ON THE REVERSE SIDE OF THE TICKET
Favorite thing: Look at the reverse side of your ticket. There is a scgematic (NOT detailed) map of the castle... in Polish only (why???).
So, my translation:
A - ZAMEK WYSOKI = The High Castle
B - ZAMEK SREDNI = The Middle Castle
C - PRZEDZAMCZE = The Lower Castle
1 - Kasa biletowa = Ticket Office
2 - Wejscie do zamku = The entrance to the castle
3 - Kawiarnia = Cafe
4 - Hotel i restauracja = Hotel and restaurant (it's simple :-)
5 - Karwan - Osrodek Konferencyjny = Karwan - Conference center (Convention Center ??)
6 - Parkingi = Parking lots.
Favorite thing: I paid 22.00 PLN (tax included, as always in Poland) for my ticket which entitled me to visit the Castle Museum grounds, 20 permanent expositions and additional 2 temporary that time + the 3-hour tour with Polish speaking guide.
KASA = TICKET OFFICE
Favorite thing: Northeast of the entrance there is this small building as on my picture. It's KASA = ticket office. So, don't forget to find it and buy your tickets before you go inside the castle. Btw you are NOT allowed to enter the castle without a guide (Polish speaking guide is included in the price of your ticket).

NOGAT RIVER AND CITY OF MALBORK
Favorite thing: .
Tourist Information Centre
ul. Piastowska 15
tel. (+48 55) 272 92 46 (high season)
MAP of Malbork:
THE HIGH CASTLE
Favorite thing: The High Castle is located south of the Middle Castle. Look at my picture taken from the other site of the Nogat River.
THE MIDDLE CASTLE
Favorite thing: When you enter the castle you are in the area called the Middle Castle. Take a look on my picture - view of the Middle Castle from the other side of the Nogat River.
NOGAT RIVER AND THE CASTLE
Favorite thing: A panoramic view of the Castle from the west is the best seen from the road just across the River Nogat.
You can see all 3 main parts of the huge castle, from the left (enlarge the picture): the Lower Castle (outside the Castle Museum and outside the preserved walls), the Middle Castle and the High Castle.
