The castle of the Dukes of Mazovia was built at the turn of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The founder of the building was Duke Janusz I of Mazovia, and after joining the lands to the Polish Kingdom it became royal property and subject of queen Bona Sforza. During the Swedish Deluge the castle was destroyed by the Swedes, who were defeated in the battle. Attempts to rebuild have been took up later by the Marshal of the Crown, Franciszek Bielinski, but in the eighteenth after getting part of the the Prussian partition, the castle was destroyed again.
Today the castle is merely a ruin, but three towers are still retained, from where you can admire the surrounding panorama.
Starting in May, historic weekend picnics are held at the castle, during which shows of knightly skills, craft stalls and public archery tournaments are presented.
You can also spend the night in the ruins, you only need to stock up on with a sleeping bag and sleeping mat.
