Malbork is a small town in northern Poland, located in the Vistula River Delta, near the border with the Kaliningrad region, 70 kilometres south of Gdansk and 130 kilometres north of Torun. It was founded by the Knights of the Cross back in the 13th century. The town is known mainly for the Marienburg (Malbork) Castle - the largest stronghold in Poland, built by the Teutonic Order. Despite its small population and provincial character, the town attracts a large number of tourists due to its history and atmosphere of chivalry. The castle complex is now considered an outstanding example of defense architecture and is listed on UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.
