From history cards

Slupsk in the XIV – XIV centuries was the capital of the Duchy of Slupsk, at this time falls the period of its glory. The seat of the Gryphite dynasty finally took the shape of a Renaissance castle. The castle was no longer spacious enough for the princely court. The house was liked by the widows of the princely family.

Anna de Croy, the sister of the last ruler of the family, created a place where she collected Gryffiti family memorabilia. All surviving elements of the collection were taken to Berlin in 1731.

Subsequently, the building served as an armoury, a warehouse for grain and salt, and a place for storing theatrical decorations. After the war, it was a rope factory and netting factory.

In the 1960s, the Pomorskie Dukes Castle was rebuilt as it looked at the best period of its splendour, so Renaissance.
