This twin-turreted fortification claims to be one of the few in Europe which doesn't stand on a hill. Instead it sits on water meadows - on the other side of a river from a brewery. Maybe invaders used to get so plastered before crossing the...More

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.
