Poland has very rich cultural heritage. It is also very popular among many history lovers. This time we want to tell you about a group that visited us in July last year. It was a group of 17 people from Norway interested in Medieval knights. They flew to Gdańsk and stayed in Mercure Gdańsk Old Town hotel. One of the most important points in their itinerary was one day trip to Malbork Castle. It is enlisted at UNESCO World Heritage List and it is the biggest brick castle in Europe. During the sightseeing the group had a lunch in the excellent Piwniczka restaurant which is located in the castle premises. After Malbork Castle tour with a guide and some exploration on their own the group moved to nearby Kwidzyn Castle, also a masterpiece of the Teutonic knights order. Another extraordinary attraction was a trip to Grunwald fields on the 15th of July. Every year at a small village Grunwald there is an amazing staging of the most famous Polish Medieval battle that took place in 1410, performed by hundreds of reconstruction group members. The event is a magnet for tourists. It gathers about 3 000 Medieval lovers from across Europe and about 1500 of them takes part in the battle. The epic battle is observed by about 100 000 spectators. Grunwald field is only about 1.5 h drive from Gdańsk so, the location is very convenient for the visit purpose. It was memorable itinerary and our guests were very happy with the program. Of course apart from the Medieval elements they also visited Gdańsk’s Old Town and relaxed at Sopot’s beach. All in all it was a memorable event that we can recommend to all tourists, not only the ones who are fascinated with Medieval period.
