You know the stories of knights, sieges and spectacular battles, don’t you? The Castle in Malbork is an icon of Medieval Poland and the largest brick castle in the world. You will feel like a true explorer. Take an unforgettable one-day trip with us to the Tri-City’s environs! After the tour of the castle, we will take you exploring the most beautiful areas in the Żuławy Lowlands where you can discover the historical Mennonite trails (the Mennonites were Dutch colonists who settled in the area several centuries ago), see their old arcaded front houses, which are the most beautiful monuments of old Żuławy architecture, not to be found anywhere else in Poland. The last point of the program will be a visit to Westerplatte, the place where II World War began.
The largest brick Gothic fortification in Europe. Built of over 60 million bricks, it reigns over the Nogat River and reminds us of the power of the Teutonic Order. The fortification complex itself consists of three castles in one: Low Castle, Middle Castle and High Castle. The castle in Malbork has never been conquered and the legends of its power are still alive in the middle of the thick brick walls. Malbork Castle has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world.
The Westerplatte peninsula is known all over the world and is also a must-see when visiting Gdańsk. The peninsula itself is full of ruins with a monumental obelisk sticking out on an artificial mound. Westerplatte, however, is not visited because of its beautiful monuments, but in order to remember the victims and devastation of the world’s greatest conflict – World War II. A guided walk around Westerplatte will bring you closer to the secrets of the first battle of this conflict, as well as the meanders of multicultural Gdańsk and the people who inhabited it over the centuries. Learn the history of the heroic defense of Westerplatte and the fate of Polish soldiers on the European fronts.
