Famous castle, place where King Sigismund of Poland died (his Italian wife Queen Bona also stayed here), destroyed by the Russian army in the 19th century, now almost fully rebuilt. Really good restaurant - haute cuisine!

Fascinating history, told by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. A place worth visiting. The entrance fee is about $3 per person which includes about 30 min guided tour.

Although the castle is essentially "new" (rebuilt over the last 15 years) it dates back over 500 years. Get a view of how important the history of Tykocin was as part of the Poland-Lithuanian Republic. The guide spoke excellent English too.
