Description

Gniew Castle is a former castle of the Teutonic Order, built after 1290. By the Second Peace of Thorn (1466) it became Polish and was given to Duke Jan de Jani of the Clan of Ostoja, the voivode of Pomerania by the King. It has been expanded and rebuilt several times since. The castle has been restored in the late 20th century.
