Malbork Castle



 

 
The Malbork castle is the biggest gothic fortress of medieval Europe. The construction of the castle was started in the 13th century and built by the Teutonic Knights. During the next century Malbork (German: Marienburg) was the seat of the Grand Masters of the Teutonic Order and became the capital of the Teutonic Country.

The castle consists of a triple defensive complex: the High Castle with the chapel of the Assumption of the Holy Mary, the Middle Castle, the Low Castle and the arsenal, surrounded by defense walls with keeps and the Bridge Gate.
