|Malbork (German: Marienburg) is a town south of Gdansk in northern Poland which was built
around the fortress Ordensburg Marienburg on the east bank of the river Nogat. Under
continuous construction for nearly 230 years, Malbork Castle is actually three castles nested in
one another. A classic example of a medieval fortress, it is the world’s largest brick castle and
one of the most impressive of its kind in Europe. The castle was in the process of being
restored when World War II broke out. During the war, the castle was over 50% destroyed.
Restoration has been ongoing since the war. However, the main cathedral in the castle, fully
restored just prior to the war and destroyed during the war, remains in its ruined state.
