Tour Gniew Castle
One of the southern most points of interest in the Kociewie region is in the town of Gniew, and in particular its Ordensburg castle which was built by the Teutonic Order at the turn of the 14th century. On top of this you can also tour Marysienka’s Palace, which was built during the second half of the 17th century. Gniew also boasts a well-preserved medieval old town, with buildings dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries, as well as a Gothic church dating from the 14th century. During World War II the castle was used by Nazi Germany as a prison for the ethnically cleansed Polish population of Tczew and the surrounding area.
