“A secret gem if you don't know Poland well”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

My wife is from this city and I've been here many times. This Castle is something that has seen colourful history and amazing changes over the years. As far as history and war is concerned then all historians should visit at least once (for several hours), given that Lidzbark has had it's share of Prussian, Russian, Polish and Germanic connections. It is quite a beauty (especially since refurbishment work) and is now funded I believe by a Scandinavian based culture heritage company of sorts. It is a baby as far as tourism is concerned because it lacks staff but the castle itself is several floors high, with a mixture of old woods, new scaffold, dungeons and unique brickwork. typicaly surrounded by a moat but with a modest courtyard, it goes below the level of the river and has some beautiful internal decor with an abundance of different rooms. Cheap if you pay in Euros or pound but about average if you are using Zloty. If you are in Lidzbark for any reason, you will miss out if you don't visit this castle.

it is well preserved with a nice chapel. It's worth seeing. You can rent a costume there and take some funny picture in the chambers, it is great idea!
