Golub-Dobrzyń Castle

I was glad to get this nice card with both lovely sides.

Golub-Dobrzyń is a town in central Poland, located on the both sides of the Drweca River.

This card shows the Golub-Dobrzyń Castle, built at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries, later rebuilt and extended in the 15th century. Between 1616 and 1623 it was a residence of Anna of Finland; during this period a Renaissance attic was added. The castle was destroyed during the The Deluge. In the 19th century, it was neglected and a gale caused the collapse of its attic. After 1945 the castle was rebuilt and renovated.
