The ruins of the Teutonic Order Castle
The castle was built in 13th century on site of former fortified settlement. That is why it has an unusual horseshoe shape. The inhabitants were 12 order knights and a commander representing the Teutonic Order power on these lands. In 1454 the inhabitants of Toruń instigated an uprising against the Teutonic Order; they took over the castle and pulled it down. Nowadays, the only remains of the castle are Gdanisko, a former lavatory tower, and picturesque ruins. The ruins serve as a background for many concerts, festivals and tournaments.
