History

The former prussian castle, occupied by the Teutonic Crosses in 1233, in the same year received city rights. From 1285 to 1587 it was the seat of the Post-Mesagan Bishopric. In 1440, the Prussian Union was established here.

The monument to the Pomesan Chapter is the most valuable monument in Kwidzyn. The wings of the castle with towers in the corners belonged to the defense system. The main tower to this day, which dominates the entire castle massif, was also a lookout bell tower. The attraction of the castle is the characteristic latrine tower called the gdanisk from 1384. It was placed more than 50 m in front of the west wing of the castle and connected to the castle by a long, five-span porch. Today, the castle houses the Castle Museum.

The history of Kwidzyn, its monuments and picturesque surroundings are enough reason to come even for the most picky tourists. Kwidzyn has a population of about 100,000. 40,000 inhabitants and is a buoyous socio-economic center. It develops as a city of paper, electronics and food industries.

The city has many places to stay in hotels and guesthouses. The Kwidzyński Cultural Centre and the Kwidzyński Centre for Sport and Recreation provide attractive proposals for the city’s residents and tourists throughout the year.

In 2007, during archaeological research, two brick crypts were found in the cathedral’s presbytery. In one of them, there were three gradings of the great Teutonic masters: Werner von Orseln (he served from 1324 to 1330), Ludolf Koeniga (grand master from 1342 to 1345) and Heinrich von Plauen (grand master from 1410 to 1413). The second empty crypt is tied to the tomb of Bl. Dorothy of Mątowów.
