Waldau Castle, Practical Info

Waldau castle or burg Waldau is a Teutonic castle in Russia. It was built in the 14th century by the knights of the Teutonic Order. Back then the area was called East Prussia. After the end of WWII the territory was handed over to the Soviet Union to become what is now Russia's westernmost exclave of Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea. The castle belongs to the Russian Orthodox Church which leases it to the Sorokin family involved in its large-scale restoration.
