Review this castle

On the way we stopped at Niedzika. Non of the guidebooks that we had mentioned this small town, about 3 hours drive from Warsaw. But I knew about the existence of a castle because of my hobby, which is building castles from card. (More on this later). With a little help from some local people we were able to find the castle. It is quite small and appeared to me to have become a meeting place for the locals who fancied a drink in the bar which was situated in one of the rooms of the castle. With no guide books available at the castle I know non of its history, but there is no mistaking the design and building materials which shows that it is yet another Teutonic castle. I left here feeling a little sad, because it seems to have been missed by people interested in castles and now appears to be the ultimate in “Theme pubs”.

Anyway, we left Niedzika full of expectation for our next destination, we were not to be disappointed! Another of my model castles is Malbork, my wife liked the look of the castle so much that she said she was interested in visiting it. After consulting with a Polish tour company in London and finding out that we could stay in the castle, we immediately started making plans for the holiday.
