St Anne's Chapel

St Anne's Chapel in Malbork Castle was the burial chapel of the great Teutonic masters. Desecrated during the Swedish Wars in the 17th century, the chapel was eventually given to the Jesuit order and was used as their burial place in the 18th century. After 1780 the chapel was taken over by the parish clergy and between 1821 and 1823 it was renovated and restored. The building was again completely revitalised and the interior was altered by Conrad Steinbrecht in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1945, during the fighting for the castle, the vault of the chapel collapsed after being hit by artillery fire from the Red Army.
