Information about Malbork

The town of Malbork grew up around a castle and fortress built by Teutonic knights in the 13th century. Malbork is located in northern Poland on the banks of the Nogat River. The Malbork Castle (Mary’s Castle) was originally named the Castle of Marienburg by the German knights and the town was called Marienburg until it came under Polish rule in 1466 and began to be called by the Polish version of its name, Malbork.

Malbork Castle is the largest Gothic castle in the world and the largest brick building in Europe. It is also a prominent UNESCO World Heritage Site.
