Since ancient times the amber country has attracted Germanic soldiers. From 1220, the Teutonic knights, together with the Polish princes, conquered the Prussian possessions, and by 1265 numerous castles of the Teutonic Order began to appear on these lands. The knight's order castles are the most significant and spectacular architectural monuments which remain from these times. The castles were built in accordance with the traditions of late medieval Order Gothic architecture.
You will enjoy a fascinating tour of the Castles "Waldau" (Nizovye, external inspection) and "Tapiau" (Gvardeysk, external inspection), a tour of the castle "Georgenburg" and a visit to the stud farm "Georgenburg", whose glorious history dates back to 1377, when the crusaders and German knights engaged in breeding horses in the fortress of Georgenburg.
