Szymbark Castle is a spectacular, well-preserved ruin of a 14th-century castle in the village of Szymbark, near Iława (Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship). The castle was built by the Pomesan Chapter and then transformed into the ancestral residence of the most distinguished family of East Prussia – von Finckenstein. It is the second largest Gothic castle in Poland, after Malbork. The castle survived World War II intact, but was plundered and burned by the Red Army after the liberation of Poland. According to various sources, the castle is one of the places where the famous amber room is hidden.

The Zamek Szymbark Foundation, which has been supervising the castle revitalization process since 2019, together with the Patron of Culture, the Heritage Poland Group Foundation, together with the event producer, Progresja Music Zone sp. z o.o. begin a series of cultural events as part of the „Castle Nights” project with a concert by Migde Ure.
