We are proud to present our long-awaited website Castle of the Mazovian Princes in Czersk. We are very grateful for the all-important support given to us by the National Centre for Culture through its Culture Online programme.
The fascinating history of the castle is intimately linked with the history of the whole region of Mazovia. The castle is built layer upon layer, early medieval stronghold, rule by the proud and ambitious Mazovian princes, economic development under Queen Bona in the Jagiellonian dynasty heydays, the devastating Swedish invasion and attempts to save the castle at the end of the First Republic, destruction of fortifications in Mazovia during Poland’s 123 years of foreign occupation, successive attempts to rise again – this is our heritage, which we are still creating together. Today's present will become tomorrow’s history ...
