The castle was built on the turning point of the fourteenth and fifteenth century.HistoryThe Masovian dukes castle in Czersk was built on the turning point of the fourteenth and fifteenth century, by Duke Janusz I. When the Masovian land became part of the Kingdom of Poland - which was under the rule of Queen Bona Sforza. Primarily, the castle had three towers, one of them - being four-sided, was used as the main gate house.During the war with the Swedes, in 1656, the castle became partly ruined. The retreating land army, close to Warta, under Stefan Czarniecki's commandhad captured the stronghold and had devastated it. The castle went through a reconstruction between 1762-1766, when Marszałek Franciszek Bieliński had commanded the reconstruction of the stronghold. However, due to the Prussian Partition, the Prussian leader had ordered for the demolition of the castle's defense walls, reducing the stronghold's military importance. From that time, nobody had every again took on the reconstruction of the castle. From the once mighty stronghold, all of the towers; a brick bridge from the eighteenth century; and the north and east wing of the castle had all survived.

  • Beautiful views from the walls, the climate of the place, we found a very interesting event ("clash of the Princes"): a large portion of the knowledge and entertainment, attraction for the whole family.

  • The ruins of the Castle, a piece of the wall two towers, on which you can enter and one closed-this is not for my part critique of the place, only just determine what it is. On the plus side for sure a nice view. Place near Warsaw, Czersk Castle so you can choose to use as the target of the tours, cycling or motorcycle. While from a distance especially rather not worth it there, but passers-by (on Battery) you can drive there, at least in terms of making a stopover there.

  • It is worth to leave for a while, to be able to move to the middle ages the Knights ' tournament. Delicious food-on any other Knight's tournament, such was not the case. Of the whole two days. It is worth to be until the very end.
