12. Malbork Castle

Malbork Castle was declared a World Heritage site in December of 1997. The name of this Prussian castle translates to mean “Mary’s Castle,” and was built by the Knights of the Teutonic Order. Over time, Malbork Castle has undergone a number of expansions and is one of the largest castles in the world by area alone. Malbork is also the largest castle made of brick in the world. It was completed in 1406 as a traditional medieval fortress, and is one of two World Heritage Sites in the area that have connections to the Teutonic Order. The other is the site of Thorn Castle, also known as the “Medieval town of Torun”.
