The status of the historical monument is a unique distinction for a given object. They are granted by the President of the Republic of Poland to places of special value that are of great importance to Poland's cultural heritage. The historical victory of Władysław Jagiełło over the Teutonic Knights in one of the greatest battles of medieval Europe is undoubtedly one of the events of great importance for the history of Poland. The Battle of Grunwald was the beginning of the end of the Teutonic Order in Prussia, the greatest enemy of the Crown of Poland in the 14th and 15th centuries. In the nineteenth century, the Victory of the Grunwald gained special significance - it built morale and gave hope to Poles to regain independence.

At Grunwald Fields, we will first of all see the monumental Grunwald Victory Monument, unveiled in 1960, on the 550th anniversary of the battle. It is composed of a granite obelisk with knights carved in it and 11 steel masts symbolizing the Polish and Lithuanian banners. Next to the monument there is an amphitheater and a mock-up showing the setting of individual troops during the battle. The Museum presents exhibitions devoted to the history of the Teutonic Order in Prussia, the conquest of Prussian lands, Polish-Teutonic conflicts and the Battle of Grunwald itself.


You can also see a fragment of Aleksander Ford's "Krzyżacy". Other objects of the Museum, open to the public, are the ruins of a gothic mansion chapel erected by the Teutonic Knights in 1411 and the remains of the so-called Krakow's Grunwald Monument, built in 1910, and destroyed by the Nazis during World War II. On the Grunwald Fields, we will also see the Jagiello Mound, created by scouts in 1959 in the place of the alleged command post of Władysław Jagiełło. It is also worth paying attention to the boulder placed in the likely place of death of the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order, Ulrich von Jungingen.

The museum is known for reconstructing the battle of Grunwald, which takes place every Saturday, around July 15, the date of the day's battle. It attracts hundreds of reconstructors and thousands of history buffs.

The museum is open from April 10 to September 30 in the chair. 9.30-18.30. After the Battlefields, you can walk all year long.

The cost of tickets (guided tours) is normal - PLN 13, concessions - PLN 11.
