The town of Czersk is located in the northern part of Poland in Chojnice County, about 39 km from Warsaw. Czersk was the old capital of the Mazovian region.

Czersk’s main tourist attraction is its medieval castle , which is situated about one km from River Vistula. The castle was originally built in the 13th century but its present structure dates back to the 14th – 16th centuries. The castle ruins include three towers and their connecting walls. From the towers you can enjoy the view of the region.

One of Poland’s most important archaeological sites of Megalithic tombs is located near near Czersk in the Tucholskie Forest. It contains a burial ground with a Romanesque influence dating back to the 1st century.

The area contains tumuli, Megalithic tombs, some of them 30m in diameter and the so-called flat graves left here by the Goths moving from Scandinavia to the Black Sea some two thousand years ago. A similar burial ground is located at Wesiory several dozen kilometers north of Czersk.
