Malbrok castle was the seat of the Grand Master of the order of the Teutonic Knights. Built in northern Poland first as an Abby and then extend later into a living breathing home for knights, becoming the largest brick castle in the world. The castle was an administration centre for the Teutonic order who had settled in northern Poland. The castle was used at one time as the Royal residences, after the partition of Poland a poor house and military barracks, during the German occupation of Poland in World War Two the castle was a centre for the Hitler Youth movement and was destroyed by the Russian army. The castle is being lovingly restored and is an UNESCO world heritage sight.

Beautiful. Love the reflection. Would like to see it at other times of day and even in black and white.
I would love to go back and visit this castle again. Winter would be cool also a sunrise or a night shot with stars above. The sun was quite high when i took this shot as I was heading back to the car after a fantastic guided tour of the castle.
Great shot of this magnificent castle, Ben!
What you can see here just scratches the surface of what is there. it is huge. WE spent about 4 hours here and only saw a small part even with the guided tour. The tour guide admitted that there is so much to show, each guide shows their best bits so no two tours are the same.
Love everything about this photo ~ the castle, the blue sky, wispy clouds and the reflection all come together so nicely.
