Baldenburg (Biary Bor)
Baldenburg is in the far northwest corner of Kreis Schlochau, very near the old border with the Pommern. This village was initially a defensive fortification for the Teutonic Knights and sits on a small river. Later it was an administrative center for Prussian tax records for Kreis Schlochau. The village was largely destroyed in the war.
In this village is a carving of an old Pomeranian Duke, as seen here:
