Hundreds of knights in shining armour convene at the enchanting castle in Dębno every September to compete for the “Golden Plait of Tarłówna”. The event is accompanied by stunt shows and ancient cannon salvos, as well as court dance performances and displays of juggling skills. The International Knights Tournament in Dębno has been organised for a dozen or so years and is one of the biggest events of its kind in Poland. However, it is worth visiting the castle in Dębno not only during the tournament. This late-Gothic knight’s residence was built in the years 1470–1480 with funds from castellan Jakub Dębiński. The brick walls, richly decorated with stone ornaments (window frames, beautiful bay window trusses and impressive portals), create four wings surrounding a small internal courtyard. Step inside to see an interesting exposition of historic furniture, paintings, weapons, etc.
