Thumbs up Olsztyn

Hello, Mike!
A very nice build - my compliments for showing this castle (polish: zamek).
It's name is indeed Allenstein / Olsztyn, named after the river Alle, in Prussia, or more precisely, in the bishopric of Ermland / Warmia. The designation Zamek Kapituly Warmiensky means that this castle did not belong to the knights of the Teutonic Order or the bishop himself but to the cathedral chapter (Domkapitel). Later on it was the seat of a royal prussian provincial governor (Regierungspräsident) - hence the yellow baroque wing.
Kind regards -
Papercaptain
