Bastion is a monument of military engineering architecture. The crown prince cannot boast of a perfect condition inside, but the outside has preserved an amazing and vital atmosphere: trees, bushes and herbs rejoice in abundance. Take a little walk and breathe in the spirit of antiquity.

Castle "Waldau"

Many centuries ago, two Prussian princes began to build this castle. They received the land from the Teutonic Order for supporting the Teutonians during another rebellion. Initially it was a small fortress, similar to an inn. In the XVII century, the castle was even visited by Peter I. He spent here just one night, as there is a record in the archives of the castle. Today there is a memorial tablet on the castle about this event. On the road there is a memorial stone.

Cafe "Angel"

The atmosphere in this cafe is always cosy and homely. Be sure to try the borscht and charcoal dishes.

Zamok Georgenburg

The castle was repeatedly captured and sacked by Lithuanians and Mongol Tatars, who were hired by Poles to fight the knights. In the chronicles of Georgenburg you can read the sad story of the desecration of the estate by invaders led by the Polish Prince Gonszewski. He easily penetrated the manor, razed it to the ground and captivated 30 young men along with a huge number of domestic animals. It was perhaps the most dramatic event in the history of the Order of Georgenburg.
