This is quite an unusual castle, built on a flat terrain, while all other castles I can think of are built on hills… This is why some bright historians think it wasn’t a king’s castle, at least not at the beginning, it was rather a...More

We only viewed the castle from the outside since our days were spent elsewhere, but it is a lovely local site in the evening.

When in the Ciechanow area of Poland, a stop at the castle, dating back to the 14th century, is worth the time. The castle is within easy walking distance of the center of the city and there is plenty of parking available.

Compare to Malbork Fortress - Ciechanów castel is trifling and infinitesimal. There is nothing inside, external walls and keeps only. Not only. It is the small museum room and multimedia presentation inside too. Ciechanów castel interior is under reconstruction and revitalisation and I hope it...More
