I suppose many people in the United States would really like to travel the world and see the castles they dreamed of a children. Those magical places where the stories came from. They always seemed so far away and magical. Royalty is something missing in their culture. It’s pretty much a mystery.
So I found some castles that we can enjoy.
This is the Hammond castle located in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It is one of the few that is located in the United States. It is on the Atlantic coast in the Magnolia area. The original owner, John Hays Hammond Jr had it constructed between 1926 and 1929.
Mr. Hammond was an inventor. He dealt with the early stages of “remote control” and held over 400 patents.
Malbork is the largest castle in the world (surface area), and the largest brick building in Europe. It was built in Prussia by the Teutonic Knights, in a form of an Ordensburg fortress. The castle is a classic example of a medieval fortress and, on its completion in 1406, was the world’s largest brick castle.
The largest castle in the world, by surface area, is Malbork. It is also the largest brick castle in the world. It’s a fortress style.
