Marienburg Castle, the former headquarters of the Teutonic Order, Marienburg, East Prussia. The castle, in what is now Poland, was damaged significantly during World War II, but has since been mostly reconstructed.

And this is how the Malbork/Marienburg Castle looked like before partitions of Poland (in the 18th century)...

* The castle was residence of Polish kings between 1457 and 1772

After Poland lost its independence, Marienburg/Malbork Castle complex was used as barracks for Prussian Army (1772-1804). At the time, its rich interiors were thoroughly ransacked. In the 19th century the "Disneyland" project that we can see today was built (* and rebuilt after WW2). The architecture is typical for Romantic historicism and linked Classical composition schemes with a neo-Gothic appearance. The intention was to change the castle into an idealised symbolic seat of the Teutonic Knights and remove all the Renaissance and Baroque elements implemented over the centuries of Polish rule (for example Baroque Jesuit Collegium that you see above to the right was completely demolished).

It seems to me the "Disneyland" is reconstruction of the former german reconstruction, isn't it?

On the 9th October 1944 the principal target was Marienburg in eastern Germany, where Focke-Wulf production had been relocated, having previously been sited at Bremen.
It was thought that it was now out of range of the bombers but the USAAF were to prove that to be a mistake.

The castle was ruined by soviet artillery, not by USAAF carpet bombing.

Yes Your right! Soviet artillery, or USAAF carpet bombing the final result and the heart of the matter is same. Almost. Rubble, ruins, fire inferno, killed people and death everywhere...
The irreplacable architectural gems were annihilated. Palaces, museums, churches, monuments fell victim to the bombs.
Sad and Sorrowful...

never again

The first Protestants came to Olsztyn/Allenstein (Warmia) after partitions of Poland in 1773. The Warmian Bishop's Castle taken over by Prussians was given to Protestant community in 1779. For the next ~100 years Protestant masses have been held at the Castle and since 1825 also in one of the houses in the Old Town. In 1833, the Protestant community decided to build the first Protestant church in Olsztyn/Allenstein. The church was constructed between 1876 and 1877.








The oldest Polish Masurian (born in Masurian town Dębowiec Wielki in 1910, died at the age of 102 in Olsztyn) Walter Późny's funeral was here


More about Walter Późny - http://ekomazury2.wm.pl/Sto-mazurski...-Poznego,90104

At the time of Prussian rule, Roman Catholic churches of Holy Cross and Holy Spirit in Olsztyn/Allenstein have been demolished.




Town Hall in Pieniężno/Mehlsack, Warmia...

After WW2


Now


The town hall, dating from the 14th century and rebuilt in the 15th century, was destroyed during the Swedish occupation of Poland in 1626. It was rebuilt in 1666, but burnt in a fire the same year, only to be rebuilt again in 1770. WW2 wiped out roughly 90% of the city. The Town Hall is now being reconstructed.

It would be good and just if Holy Spirit and St. Cross were rebuilt.

I'm afraid it's too late for that. The Town Hall was built in a place where Holy Cross church once stood. And Holy Spirit church...well, there's no accurate documentation to reconstruct that church.
