|Cross in Chapel|
During the early days of the Nazi invasion of Poland, Hitler visited the castle to determine its usefulness to the cause. However since it’s restoration and rebuilding; stars such as Sophia Loren have spent time here as well. It is a very large and impressive castle located some 50 kms SE of Gdansk. Make sure you leave enough time to see it. Expect at least 4 hrs. to take the excellent audio tour.
|Torun Town Square at Night|
Later that same day we moved on to Torun, and WHS located about 150 kms south of Malbork castle. It is the home to Copernicus the astronomer.
Torun has a very nice old
town, and we had a great meal at the Metropolis restaurant. Our late evening
wandering took us past the Old town prison still in operation.
