First floor is all about bishops and Copernicus who stayed there . If you like Christian stuff there's lots... More

Hotel connects traditions and modernity. Interiors (rooms, halls, restaurant) are beautiful and clean. I recommend rooms with view on moat or patio. Breakfast was diversified and tasty, including ordered individually omlet or scrumble eggs. Discreet service activity and helpful .

It's a good way to spend an hour or two in Lidzbark Warmiński. But you should take a guide to understand the history of this place and antiques inside. Beware that during the most important Polish national holidays the museum is closed. I think that for young children it can be boring. Some exhibitions are closed because of renovation work.

One year ago, I tried to have a coup of coffee outside the hotel, in the courtyard as I have seen a couple of guests sitting there. I was refused because actually "the guests of the manager are served there". I tried this year hoping that there are no more the manager´s guests or the manager was luckily fired. I... More

Castle is quite impressive building from outside and contains a museum inside. Visiting time about 1/2 hour, some items in museum were eye catching. Exploring the castle and small old town around it was a fun. So visiting this small city was right choice and I can suggest it to others.

This rating is not a reflection of my opinion of this historical monument (which I would problably rank to be a 4.5 or 5 star attraction). The problem is - the musem was CLOSED and inaccessible to the public during 10th - 11th of November. Well, 10th happened to be Monday (most museums closed on this weekday), 11th of November... More
