Family trip to Malbork
Usually, visiting museums does not sound very interesting in the ears of children and adolescents. What can be interesting about walking through rooms filled with objects that cannot be touched and listening to the (often) monotonous voice of the guide? There is a place where a trip into the past is not only not boring - it will attract every toddler, guaranteeing him a great adventure. This place is not far away, waiting for little guests here in Poland, in Malbork.
Family adventure at Malbork Castle
Imagine a trip through a medieval castle, where hundreds of years ago lived a great Teutonic master with knights. At the beginning you get special knight hoods and wax tablets. The letters written on them will form a Latin sentence that will have to be translated into Polish at the end of the journey. During the trip, you will meet a lady with a harp, a mint maker and an amber craftsman, and you will follow a guide dressed in an antique outfit. Discovering the secret of the castle will not be easy - the task is interrupted by a jester trying to distract your attention. At the end of the journey, you will meet the Grand Master and the knights of the Order, and you will also receive a special certificate, proof of being the discoverer of the castle's secrets. Doesn't such a trip sound attractive? It has nothing to do with shifting foot by foot from room to room - on the contrary, the "Mysteries of Malbork Castle" route arouses great interest among visitors. This is a completely different way to learn about the history, as well as the opportunity to test yourself in shooting with a crossbow and bow, or accuracy in throwing a spear and ax. There are more people willing than places, so it is not surprising that long lines form during the period in which it is organized (May 1 - September 30). You can go on tour every day except Monday, between 10:00 and 11:30. After leaving the interior of the castle, it is worth going to the nearby Żuławy Ceramic Village, where at one of the Artistic Craft points you can find out whether it is easy to make something from clay yourself. During the workshops, it is possible to leave the toddler under the care of an instructor.
Malbork dinosaurs and dragons
The attractions of Malbork are by no means limited to the castle. At ul. Parkowa is home to the Rope Park - Jumpy Park, where both children and adults will have a great time. It is one of the largest facilities of this type in Poland, with 10 routes with a total length of over 2.5 km. Among the obstacles that we encounter on wooden platforms connected by steel ropes, we can mention nets, descents and bridges. Malbork also invites guests to Dinopark (ul. Toruńska 61), where there are several dozen moving dinosaurs of various sizes on the educational path. In the Dragon Park, we will see creatures straight from fairy tales, and in the 5D Extreme Cinema, the viewer will have a chance to experience really strong emotions. Similarly, on the Laser Obstacle Course, where anyone can turn into a secret agent. When we add the Mini Zoo, animatronic shows and a fossil museum with hundreds of millions of years old specimens, it is easy to understand why time passes very quickly here. As you can see, there is really a lot to see in the city of the great Teutonic masters. As in many other Polish cities .
Camping in Malbork
If the trip to Malbork lasts until the evening or we find that not all attractions have been seen yet and we need to devote more time to them, we need to find a suitable accommodation. An interesting offer for guests has been prepared by Camping Nad Stawem , located - as the name suggests - by a picturesque pond where guests can fish. You can spend the night here in a caravan or put up a tent. The park of dinosaurs, moving dragons and a rope park are located in the immediate vicinity, the center of Malbork is approx. 500 meters away, there is also a grocery store nearby. Apart from families with children, the place is popular among cycling enthusiasts. A great advantage is also a beautiful view of the Malbork Castle, stretching from the campground. It sounds inviting?
