Photographer's Note

Malbork Poland is home in northern Poland in the Zulawy region and is well known for the Malbork Castle that stands out overlooking the entire city. The castle in Malbork was built in Prussia and became the seat of the Teutonic Order and the largest Gothic fortress in all of Europe. In the beginning, the castle and town were called Marienburg, which is not what it appears to be. In fact, the castle is three castles in one. The Malbork Castle is the largest brick castle in the world and the most stunning in Europe. During World War II, over half of Malbork Castle was destroyed but is under reconstruction to this day. The tower of the castle in Malbork is still in ruins.
