Zamek Reszel Kreativ Hotel

Built in the 14th century, this fortified Gothic castle has experienced many an incarnation over time, from a bishop's hunting lodge to a prison. But these days, Reszel Castle is hardly a place you'd want to escape from. With only 21 rustic-comfy rooms and suites, you will usually feel as if you have the place to yourself. Many of the guests you do encounter come for the castle's art scene, which includes the on-site Gallery of Modern Art and ongoing Fine Arts Days, showcasing visual art, music, literature, dance and theater. Located in a picturesque market town, the castle is also popular with local foodies, who frequent the house restaurant for signature specialties, such as mutton dumplings and roast pikeperch with almonds.
