At the 550 anniversary of the Battle of Grunwald a monument consisting of three elements was established: a granite obelisk with the faces of knights, 11 metal, 30-meter masts with Polish and Lithuanian pennants as well as an amphitheater with a stone battleground map.
Below this very amphitheater, there is the Museum of the Battle of Grunwald.
In the museum you can see the permanent exhibition - The Great War with the Teutonic Knights in the years 1409-1411, a collection of arms, flags copies of Polish and Teutonic units involved in the battle, and multimedia presentations, showing the different phases of the battle, as well as a special show dedicated to Jan Matejko's "Battle Grunwald " painting.
Next to the pavilion there is also a cinema room, which from Tuesday to Sunday shows films such as "Krzyzacy", "Prince Witold - the hero of two nations", "Grunwald 1410-2010", "Story of Jan Matejko's painting 'Battle of Grunwald'" .
In each anniversary of the battle on the fields of battle a re-enactment takes place with the participation of nearly 1,400 knights.
It's a great history lesson for both young and slightly older.
