Monumental medieval castle
The former seat of the Warmia bishops and the capital of the region, Lidzbark Warminski’s pride is the bishops’ castle. One part of it called przedzamcze contains a baroque palace. Through the bridge over the moat visitors enter the Gothic, well-preserved castle from the 14th century. Its chapel has sumptuous rococo interior decorations.
Today the castle houses the Warmian Museum with a rich collection of sacral art. On the hilltop stands the neo-classical bishops’ palace surrounded by a park.
Nicolaus Copernicus lived in the castle in 1503-10.
