and here you have a sit in english about them http://en.zamki.pl/

And can I have a private question: why are you so interested in them I know Poland has a long and very difficult history but not many people from outside Poland are interested to know something about it. The most stupid question I was asked about Poland was from an american who asked me if there are polar bears in poland
Thanks for the links.

I like old castles and palaces from many countries. I think that each castle has a story to tell. I like to read about its history, architecture, decor, setting, scenery, etc. and I like to look at wonderfull pictures. Whenever I have the opportunity, I also visit old castles.:)

Polish Castles.

The Castle of Golub-Dobrzyn was the residence of Anna Vasa sister of King Zygmunt III. She remained a spinster, reputedly because of her ugly appearance. By ironic coincidence the Miss Poland beauty contests were held here !

Yes, the Royal Castle is especially beautiful and lavish! I was amazed at the gold trimmings in the throne room and bedrooms...each room is exquisitely decorated.

This is palace in Posadowo (very small village near Nowy Tomysl), the posseessor was count Stanislas Łącki (he lived at the turn of the XIX and XX century). The beautiful three-storied palace stands ina splendid park. This park was known for many nice old yewtrees. In the picture this palace looks beautiful, but when you look closer, you can see that is simply ruin....
Inside:

1803 was the year in which the demolition of Malbork Castle stopped.
