It was built at the end of 14th century by Mazovian Duke Janusz. It has towers located in the four corners of the castle walls that are 10 metre high. Due to frequent reconstructions and expansions, it has constantly changed its shape. In the 15th...More

This twin-turreted fortification claims to be one of the few in Europe which doesn't stand on a hill. Instead it sits on water meadows - on the other side of a river from a brewery. Maybe invaders used to get so plastered before crossing the...More

This is quite an unusual castle, built on a flat terrain, while all other castles I can think of are built on hills… This is why some bright historians think it wasn’t a king’s castle, at least not at the beginning, it was rather a...More

We only viewed the castle from the outside since our days were spent elsewhere, but it is a lovely local site in the evening.

When in the Ciechanow area of Poland, a stop at the castle, dating back to the 14th century, is worth the time. The castle is within easy walking distance of the center of the city and there is plenty of parking available.

Nice, renovated castle. As I was said, not very popular among locals, although they really try to activate local community. Partly interactive with many additional displays. Not for toddlers (too many high stairs), but should be more interesting for a little bit older children. Economic...More
