Olsztyn is the largest town in the region. The settlement
that sheltered behind the castle walls was granted its municipal charter
in 1353. The castle still survives and today serves as a museum. Between
1516 and 1521 the brilliant astronomer Nicholas Copernicus worked
here as an administrator for his uncle, the then bishop of Warmia.
After the First Partition in 1772 Olsztyn, like the rest of Warmia,
fell under Prussian rule.
The Old Town, largely destroyed by the Red Army in 1945, is rebuild.
It's not a faithfull reconstruction, but there are some original buildings
there. Olsztyn's most prized buildings are the late-Gothic St James'
Church, the High Gate (Wysoka Brama) and the castle.
Several lakes, which offer bathing beaches, surround the town.
