Tourist attractions

The gothic castle in Reszel is a massive structure with a soaring neo-Gothic pinnacle, a round tower and a gate leading to the courtyard. Construction of the castle lasted half a century. I was initiated by Bishop John I of Meissen in 1350, continued (from 1355) by John II Stryprock, and completed in 1401 by Henry III Sorbom.

The residents included Bishops of Warmia Andrzej Batory and Michal Radziejowski, among others. In the years 1503-1510 Nicolaus Copernicus resided in Reszel as a counsellor to bishop Łukasz Watzenrode. After extensive renovation in the years 1976-1985, the castle was destined to become the house of creative work and an art gallery.
