Gniew



 

 
Gniew is situated in the northern part of Poland, on the bank of the Vistula River, about 45 km south of Malbork. Gniew is dominated by the Teutonic Knights’ castle, which was built in the 13th century on a rectangular plan, and later rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries. The castle is still surrounded by fragments of the defensive wall. The castle houses a museum, now.

Gniew’s castle hosts numerous cultural events, performances, historical spectacles, ancient music concerts and tournaments. Gniew’s parish church was built in the 14th century; the church interior is mainly Baroque.

Located not far from the castle, Marysienka's Palace was built in the late 17th century. The palace functions as a hotel, now. The Medieval urban layout of Gniew’s old town has been preserved with some buildings from the 15th -19th centuries.
