Elbląski Canal connecting Ostróda with Elbląg (one of the waterways connects Stare Jabłonki with Ostróda)

Elbląski Canal connecting Ostróda with Elbląg (one of the waterways connects Stare Jabłonki with Ostróda)

The Elbląg Canal is the work of material culture and technical thought, as well as a monument of civilizational heritage. The Elbląg Canal is the only channel in the world with an active, over 130-year-old land transport system.

Four sluices and five slipways to overcome the almost 100-meter difference in water levels are the most original solutions that distinguish this nineteenth-century wonder of technology. The entire route consists of three main sections with a total length of 130 km and with many water branches, including lakes and navigable sections of rivers. The longest of them connects Ostróda with Elbląg (hence the name), the second - Miłomłyn with Iława, and the third - Ostróda with Stare Jabłonki. Through the Elbląg River and the Vistula Lagoon, the canal connects Masuria with the Baltic Sea.
