Postcard from Poland!

Today I got a nice postcard from Poland! The card shows multiple view of Będzin, with Będzin Castle in the middle. The castle is made of stone and was made in the 14th century. Prior to this, a wooden fortification was present at the site as early as the 11th century. It was an important castle for the Kingdom of Poland. In 1956, the castle was converted into a museum and its primarily collection is on weapons. An interesting stamp from 1999 featuring a skateboarder was used! Thanks Wanda!
