It is the largest medieval castle in Europe. The three-part stronghold in the Gothic style consists of the Low Castle, the Middle Castle and High Castle. The castle has a volume of 250 000 cubic meters, it is not surprising that its construction lasted until 30 years. During this time it created a huge building with arcades surrounding the courtyard, decorated with stunning today stonework. Architectural details are unparalleled in other castles. In the middle of the courtyard Teutonic Knights built a well covered with a sloping roof, which today pelican feeds the chicks with their blood. Visit to Malbork takes us to the times of knights.
