This architectural complex, the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork or simply Malbork Castle is considered as the largest castle in the world by its surface area, and the largest brick building in Europe. As you see in the picture, it is situated on the Nogat, a delta branch of the Wisła.
For us, traveling by bus from Ukraine through Poland to Scandinavia, this place was the first that gave us many bright impressions. Previous city, Gdansk, also was very interesting, but unfortunately, the weather there was much worse than in Malbork.

This is indeed a very impressive castle! The colours of the roofs look good against the green surroundings. Any pictures from Sweden or Norway soon?

Myslałem, że Carcasonne jest najwieksza twierdzą obronna w Europie i tak sie powszechnie uważa, ale moze niesłusznie (?)
Dobre ujęcie - byłem tam przed laty.
I think Carcassonne in France is the largest Castle in Europe.Very good POV . I was there a few years ago.
You can see the Castle on the Google Street View

Да нет, архитектура это тоже интересно. Я был тут год назад, но был вдохновлен работами нашего Грааля. Да, впечатляет замок своими размерами и историей.

this is a unique castle, not only for its size but also for its layout and elegant and unusual architecture. I like very much the sense of depth you've created and the pleasant view over the river. Clarity is excellent, the view to the opposite bank is very attractive and interesting, with many eye-catching details and a strong sense of mystery. You've managed the light and the colours superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Outstanding view to nice "red" castle. I like the composition with the water in front, well framed in landscape format. The light, clarity and colors are superb. Well done. Greetings, Miro.

Never see or know about this so large castle, all made with bricks, it will be interesting to add how long it is along the river
Like the panoramic view, well composed with the vegetation at the FG
Also the castle with towers and red roofs looks impressive
Well done, congrats

magnificent panramic capture of the Castle in Malbork.I´ve been there many,many years ago,but your capture evokes beautiful memory of this visit.
It´s perfectly composed,framed and executed.I´m also delighted how excellently you could benefit from the light to bring out all details and to affect the color scheme in a so captivating way.
Have a nice day

beautiful classic view of Malbork Castle. I had a pleasure to visit it but I was not that lucky with the weather and it was in the pre digital times.
I would love to have this view in my collection too. Great POV. Good use of the vegetation to add a nice foreground. The river has a pleasant rough surface adding to the impression.

It seems really huge, beautiful and the red bricks make it very eye catching. The opposite bank seems a good pov to take a photo. I like it with the little boat there. Seems a very calm place.
jmdias (52025) 2013-10-02 17:32
excellent use of the colors here. I liked the way you build the compo in strips. nice sample of architecture. the contrast between reds and the landscape is fantastic.
PS: I arrived from Africa few hours ago.
