    ACCEPTED  CARDS

    Hmm... it seems that American Express bank/credit cards are NOT accepted in many stores around and inside the castle. Like in the whole Poland the most popular cards are:
    VISA (VISA ELECTRON)
    EUROCARD (MASTERCARD)
    MAESTRO.

    STAIRS TO RESTARANT PIWNICZKA

    There are many stairs to walk through around the castle. Many of them are steep and narrow. Be careful and always watch your steps. Hmm... there is a hospital in Malbork but better not to be forced to go there.

    GO  AND  GET  LOST :-)))

    Yes, yes, get lost among never ending corridors, passages, courtyards, cloisters, undergrounds, basements, drawbridges, gates, stairs etc. of this huge castle.
    It's the only way to see hidden places of the castle. So, keep smiling and go :-).

    THE  SIGN

    There are almost no direction signs inside the castle. Hmm... I wonder why???
    Maybe they want you to get lost and find some secret places around.
    Sometimes you can find such signs as on my picture but... in Polish language: MLYN means the mill.

    IN  FRONT  OF  TICKET  OFFICE

    The Museum maybe crowded in some summer (July, August) weekends but not over-crowded (yet!). Exception: special events in the castle - hmm... expect more crowds that time:

    There is more than 500,000 visitors each year mainly school children in groups (in business days as well). I met a lot of German speaking tourists there as well.

    Is a 3-star hotel really 3-star?

    HOTEL  ZAMEK HAS ***

    Hmm... driving around Poland I never know why some worse hotels have 3-stars and better only 2-stars. Strange: not only in Poland btw.
    I think that Hotel Zamek in Malbork should have 2-stars, except for good location (in medieval fortress) and 3 restaurants + cafe + satellite TV it doesn't offer anything more. What about a pool (covered?), guarded and fenced parking, coffee in room etc. etc.

    Do they get stars for location? I think they shouldn't. Am I wrong?
