On the silver tray, we serve you a return to the past, holidays with Podlasie ghosts and a supper with a richly set table. A charming town awaits you in the Biebrza Valley, which is full of tales from ancient times. In Tykocin, Jewish, court and knight fates intertwine. Here is also the history of celebrycka, because its long market and wooden huts are fond of film writers. As if that was not enough, the city lies on the Narew River. Its backwaters are called here the Podlasie game. This is not the end of the adventure, because a bit further nature bursts Biebrza backwaters, creating the Biebrza National Park. In such circumstances, the refuge of the monarchs of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Tykocin castle, emerges. It is more than brick walls, towers and cross vaults raised from the ashes. Crossing the gate of the fortress, it is impossible to resist the impression that we have passed through a space-time portal. In every corner you can feel the atmosphere of old times and the majesty of power that accompanies this place. Throw in the court kitchen - Podlasie wonders on the plate, interesting Jewish delicacies and Tatar delicacies, and you'll get a royal effect.
We invite everyone who wants to move to the world of castles, chambers and tables that are swaying from delicacies. The company of still wild and virgin nature is gratisie.
The history of this place is intertwined with the Polish kings' post and is absorbed from cover to cover. During these five hundred years, a lot has happened here. The castle was visited by kings and guests from distant countries, it was also a witness to wars, disputes between rich families and great treason. Several times he had his five minutes in the history of the Commonwealth. In the walls of the Tykocin castle King August II Mocny established the most important decoration of the Republic of Poland - the Order of the White Eagle, Janusz Radziwił spent time here and died. Polish kings were at the castle court, including Władysław III Waza and foreign rulers - among them Russian tsar Peter I. Both great figures and wars did not bypass our Castle: from the Swedish Deluge, through the war for Polish succession, to the January Uprising. Twice destroyed - twice made of ruins. Fortunately, thanks to the long and arduous scientific research and the reconstruction works that began at the turn... of the 20th and 21st centuries, it became the pride of the owners and people who work in it. We all invite you to Tykocin. We will do everything to make you well with us.more

What will I do?
See you, discoveries and exploration are extraordinary areas, castle walls, wild rivers and old temples. It is not worth counting clouds in the sky and listening to the wind noise. In return, we recommend visiting the Tykocin castle with a guide. For you, we have opened the castle's basement, the prison... tower and the Glass Hall (original name: Sala Szklana) with the reconstructed second-tier tiled stove of the pre-partition Republic, called the Great Modra (from the blue-and-white tiles). The furnace was built for 10 years and is currently the second largest furnace of this type in Poland.
The Narew river flowing nearby is famous in Europe for its microclimate, which attracts birds and insects of all kinds. It is a paradise not only for photographers and ornithologists, but also for tourists who want to enjoy the captivating beauty of nature. We recommend getting to know the river from the boat. Cruises for the whole family are organized by the Tykocin FlisakPark. The route leads along the historic part of the city, and then through the ecologically rich, full of birds section of the Narew River. During the cruise, a qualified guide discusses the passing monuments and places. Cruises starting at sunset are also popular, which is a good chance to see beavers in nature.
On the map, the Biebrza River and its picturesque backwaters are no less interesting. A short ride divides Tykocin from the Tsar's Road, a historical route that runs through the heart of Biebrza forests and swamps where you can meet elks, soak up untouched nature and make a stop along a walking path: for example Długa Luka, which bites up to the horizon with a narrow bridge in kępiaste, Przybiebrzańskie meadows.
Tykocin sights that are worth seeing:
- The church p.w. Holy Trinity in Tykocin built thanks to Jan Klemens Branicki in 1740 - 1750.
- The Great Synagogue was erected on the site of an old wooden synagogue in 1642. Currently it is a branch of the Podlasie Museum in Białystok.
- Small Synagogue - The Talmudic House is located in the vicinity of the Large Synagogue. Originally, the building housed a religious school and was a Talmudic house.
- The Tykocin market is a unique urban monument of the city. Since the founding of Tykocin, it has existed from the 18th century. The center of the square is decorated with a two-meter monument of Stefan Czarniecki. The memorial monument dates back to 1763. It is probably the second oldest secular monument in Poland after Zygmunt's Column.
You can not miss the events organized in the castle:
- Podlasie Auto Cafe, a meeting that is a mix of interesting motoring, noble coffee and a unique place.

What's for children?
Children feel like the heroes of fairy tales about a knight in shining armor or a dragon trainer. They are fascinated by stories about battles, wars, kings and brave knights. Our guides, like no other, can introduce children to the magical world of medieval brave warriors, princesses, queens and spectacular... assaults. With unconcealed fascination and wide open eyes, they discover towers, halls and galleries, where rulers, dark undergrounds, costumes and replicas of historical objects walked. They will feel a thrill in the prison tower. This is the highest viewing point in the area, which also allows you to observe from a short distance the life of a stork's nest in which chickens appear every spring.
An unforgettable experience is taking part in the castle assault, which takes place in February each year. It is the only historical winter staging in the country, showing events from the Deluge period. Guns, horses, knights, warriors and a general battlefield make a big impression.more

Fajne miejsce w ciekawej okolicy. Szacunek za projekt odbudowy zamku i udostepnienie go do zwiedzania.
Miejsce z nieprawdopodobnym klimatem!
Nocleg w wieży zamkowej, fajne śniadanie, zwiedzanie zamku z interesującym przewodnikiem- historia tego miejsca urzeka, warto tu zajrzeć choćby na jeden królewski nocleg :)
Bardzo przyjemna atmosfera, szczerze mogę polecić noclegi jak i sam Zamek ! Śniadania były pyszne, pokoje czyste, na plus -klimatyzacja, która przy upałach sprawdzała się w 100%. Dodatkową atrakcją był widok z okna na gniazdo bocianie wraz z małymi. Na pewno jeszcze nie raz odwiedzę to miejsce. :)
Było dokładnie tak, jak to wynika z opisu- przyjemnie, czysto, niesamowicie cicho (a tego bardzo nam brakuje na co dzień). Przemiły przewodnik, spokojna, senna atmosfera, czyste pościele i bajeczna okolica. Śniadania bardzo smaczne (plus za naleśniki i ser typu korycińskiego!). Liczenie schodów na sam szczyt bardzo podobało się naszym dzieciom :) Mimo mrozu na zewnątrz, w pokoju było ciepło .
Gdybym miała do czegokolwiek się przyczepić, myślę, że dobrze byłoby dopracować wystrój pokoi - mocne lampy kasetonowe na suficie nie sprawdzają się w miejscu, w którym chcemy odpocząć i nie pasują do zamkowego klimatu, a łazienkę dobrze wyposażyć choćby w niewielką półeczkę na kosmetyczki- są to jednak drobiazgi, które nawet w najmniejszym stopniu nie popsuły nam wrażeń!
