Ciechanow Castle in Poland



This Polish castle was designed symmetrically to withstand a lengthy siege. Its origins date to the XV century when it was built by the Duke of Masovia.



Ciechanow castle features four defensive towers, one on each corner, which were made for archers to fire from a distance.

Its situations is also of a great advantage as it was placed at a higher altitude giving an additional bonus for archers and a disadvantage for the invading troops who had to walk against gravity.
