Interactive Map Of Gothic Castles in Poland
Anyone interested in medieval castles and Teutonic Order’s military fortifications is in for a treat with this new interactive map of gothic castles of northeastern Poland. The application not only maps Order’s major strongholds in the territory of the former Prussia from the beginning of the 15th century but also renders a detailed 3-D bird’s eye view model of the selected castle. In this way, the map enables you to virtually visit more than 21 castles, some of which are currently located in the cross-border region of Poland and Russia. They include:
Człuchów, Bytów, Lębork, Gniew, Kwidzyn, Nowe, Malbork, Sztum, Działdowo, Nidzica, Ostróda, Olsztyn, Lidzbark Warmiński, Giżycko, Kętrzyn, Ryn, Bałga, Pokarmin, Królewiec, Ragneta, Lochstedt. The castle models were created according to available historical and archaeological records and designs. The map is part of the “Polish Gothic Castles” project and can be found here https://zamkigotyckie.org.pl/3d/en/. Paweł Moszczyński is the author and the creator of all the digital models.
