Photographer's Note

The Gothic Episcopal castle in Reszel. It was built (1350−1401) by the Teutonic Order on a steep hill side above the right bank of the river Sajna.
Reszel (German: Rößel; Prussian: Resel or Resl) was originally a settlement built by the Bartian tribe of Old Prussians and conquered by the Teutonic Knights in 1241. The native Prussians later recaptured the settlement and held it for five years, but were eventually defeated by the German crusaders. Reszel received its town privileges in 1337 under Magdeburg law. The town was transferred from Germany to Poland following the Potsdam Conference of 1945.(Source: Wikipedia)
Shot in the early evening. There were cars parked in front of the castle, but luckily, a few meters lower so they're not visible. The place is worth a visit, the tickets are very unexpensive and the view from the top of the tower is great - the town and the fields displayed before your eyes...
