A super cool XIII century fortress. The world's largest castle, by surface area and Europe largest brick building. A lot to see. Exciting tours through towers and fortifications.

Самый большой кирпичный замок в мире! Билет не дешёвый, но включает в себя аудиогид (есть и на русском) и 4-5 часов экскурсии. Для тех, кто любит замки - обязательно к посещению!

Самобытная гостиница в замке с просторными комнатами и чудесной атмосферой. Прекрасный ресторан и охраняемая парковка. Не пропустите! А какие места!

Дороговато вход: почти 40 злотых, но море положительных впечатлений. Дают аудиогида и ты ходишь с очень подробной экскурсией около 4-х часов по территории. Must see!
