Lidzbark Warminski

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.
