While trying to take a break from long term travel and settle down in Poland, the option of a few days in Malbork came up, as well as a visit to the town of Elbląg and a tour to the horrific German Nazi concentration camp at Stutthof. I was suddenly back on buses and trains again, after 6 stationary weeks since my return from Kaliningrad.

Reports to come on those places I hope – up there in detail with my articles on Pelplin and Starogard Gdanski. I wanted to stay in Malbork though, it just had such a charming appeal – medieval castle town on a river. The best place I could find for those wanting good quality on a budget was the Hotel Parkowy in Malbork! This was a perfect hotel for me for two nights. My Polish friend Kasia, who has been touring with me and helping with Polish also joined me.

I was in the Hotel Parkowy in late September towards the end of their season, but the best time to visit is in the peak July and August months. The Hotel also has a huge 4 star campsite called Camping Nogat and is in a leafy park area by the rover Nogat.

3.In a Park
The location of Hotel Parkowy is in a peaceful park area. This makes for a truly pleasant walk and stroll in and out of the town through leafy gardens. At one with nature. I have become a man of peace recently.

4.Fun Activities Nearby
There is a huge range of activities to do here at Hotel Parkowy. Aside from the football pitch which the hotel backs onto, you can go canoeing and for kids there are assault courses, a playground and bonfire parties! As a bonus, our balcony room backed onto a football pitch and there was a match on the first day. This reminded me of the Royal George Hotel in Birmingham and the Noclegi Rekord in Starogard Gdanski.

5.Close to the Largest Gothic Castle in the World!
Yes, you read it right – Malbork Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest Gothic Castle in the world and the biggest brick castle in Europe. It costs 39.50 zloty for a guided tour/audio tour and this lasts around 3 hours 40 minutes. It’s all about the Teutonic Knights, the history of Poland, Russia, Prussia, Germany and further afield. There is also an amber museum, horse riding, all within 20 minutes walk from the Parkowy Hotel!
