One of my favourite things about travel is how you can end up loving places you may have never even heard of before and that was exactly what happened during our visit to Malbork Castle. We didn’t expect our travels in Poland to take us to so many beautiful cities and we were even more surprised to hear that we would have the chance to visit the largest (by surface area) castle in the world. Our day was inexpensive, uncomplicated and a lot of fun so we’d definitely recommend this as a day trip and have gathered everything you need to know about how to visit Malbork Castle on a budget.
The port city of Gdansk is so far north in Poland that I’m sure many miss out on this gem while exploring Europe. But, please, do yourself a favour and add Gdansk to your itinerary if you can. The picturesque setting and colourful architecture make this city one of Poland’s favourite destinations, especially among locals looking to enjoy their holidays. We’re glad we were able to spend some time in the city and have gathered up our best tips in this guide to Gdansk for those who want to enjoy a true Polish gem!
