Introduction to Elbląg

Elbląg is one of the oldest towns in Northern Poland. It is situated on the river Elbląg, which joins lake Drużno with Zalew Wiślany. The city is regional capital and has a population of 126,460.

The first mention of the area, which includes Elbląg, can be found in the writings of the Anglo-Saxon traveller Wulfstan, who visited these area in the 9th century. The erection of a castle in 1237 by the Teutonic Order initiated Elbląg's development. At the beginning of the 14th century Elbląg was the main port of the Teutonic Order. By the time Gdańsk was captured by the Teutonic Order, Elbląg had its own fleet, was building ships, and as a member of the Hanseatic League was involved in lively trading relations with many of the towns on the Baltic Sea.

The domination of the Teutonic Order in the area had painful consequences for the inhabitants of Elbląg, and gave rise to their repeated attempts to gain Polish status. After the battle of Grunwald, Elbląg paid tribute to King Jagiełło, in 1440 it joined the Prussian Union, in 1454 the inhabitants of Elbląg attacked and captured the Teutonic Order's castle, and in both the Thirteen Years' War and the Teutonic Knights' war with Poland they bravely repelled the attacks of the Teutonic army. The fulfilment of Elbląg's expectations through the incorporation of Prussian lands into the Polish Crown by Kazimierz Jagiellończyk made the town a part of Poland until the first Partition of Poland.

In the time of Zygmunt August the construction of a Polish war fleet was begun in the Elbląg shipyard. The galleon "Smok" along with other smaller vessels: a frigate and a small sailing ship were to comprise the beginnings of a regular fleet. The death of the King frustrated the plans and "Smok" which was launched in June 1571 was never fitted out and never passed into service.

The wars in the 17th and 18th centuries brought the town destruction and looting, for which the Swedish and Russian armies were mainly responsible. The town collapsed, the shipping, trade and craft industries wilted, and the poorer inhabitants gradually abandoned Elbląg and moved to other towns. The stagnation in Elbląg lasted until the middle of the 19th century. Later, railway lines were laid from Bydgoszcz, Olsztyn, Ostróda and Braniewo to Elbląg, and the town was granted the right to use the Elbląg Canal with its system of locks, which overcome the difference in water level between lake Drużno and the group of lakes in Pojezierze Iławsko-Ostródzkie Lake District. These changes stimulated the revival of Elbląg's economy.

Elbląg's dynamic development continued until the outbreak of the Second World War. In 1837 a small metal works was built in Elbląg by Frederick Schichau, which developed and transformed into large plants producing steamships, locomotives, agricultural machines and bridge structures. Apart from the metal industry, the food and agriculture industry and the building industry also developed. At that time many oil producers, breweries, brickyards and even a cigar factory came into existence. In 1895 an electric tramline was built in Elbląg; at the time even Berlin had not yet managed to obtain this means of transport for its inhabitants.

In 1945, after 175 years, Elbląg once again returned to Poland. Not even a single house remained from the Old Town. The industrial establishments and factories had been destroyed along with their equipment. What had not been destroyed had been taken away. The inhabitants of Elbląg abandoned the town, and settlers took their place from the East and repatriates from the West.

Today, the dominant branch of industry in the town is the electrical and the shipbuilding industry, of which an example is ALSTOM POWER (the former Zamech Engineering Plants created from Schichau's factory) - a producer of power turbines and the company "Elzam". The great importance has the food and drink industry, whose main representative is the Grupa Żywiec SA Browar in Elbląg.

Long. 19° 23' E

The port of Elbląg is a newly opened seaport. It is situated on the banks of the Elbląg river and about 6 miles from its mouth at the Zalew Wiślany.

The Elbląg river has the natural inland shipping connection trough the Jagieloński Channel, Nogat and Wisła river. These waterways permit vessel to reach the inland ports of Malbork, Tczew, Gdańsk and Bydgoszcz, Berlin, etc.

The port accepts vessels of length up to 90 m, max. width of 16 m and max. draught of 2.2 m.

The approaching fairway from the Zalew Wiślany begins at the light-beacon "Elbląg". It is 50 m wide and has a depth of 2.5 m. The mouth of the Elbląg river is limited by two breakwaters, the western protrudes 1.6 Nm into the Zalew Wiślany. There is a pontoon bridge, 2.5 Nm upstream in the river, situated in the village Nowakowo which is 21 m wide.

The water level in the Zalew Wiślany and port of Elbląg depends on the direction and strength of the wind. With the winds from the NW and N there is a high water, with the winds from SW a low water is observed. It varies up to 1.2 m. The Zalew Wiślany freeze over for about 100 days in a year, usually starting in December. The ice is 30-50 cm thick.

Port of Elbląg is located on both sides of the river extending about 4.5 km upstream. The river channel is 50-100 m wide and is dredged to a depth of 3.5 to 4.5 m. It allows entry the port by vessels of up to 90 m in length and max. width of 16 m. The port consists of 2.5 km long quays, 5 port basins and the turning area of 120 m in diameter. Entrance to the south part of the port ("Elzam" Quay, Municipal Quay) is limited by the 8.7 m air draft of the railway bridge crossing the river. Most of quays belong to industrial companies and are equipped with railway systems, gantry and mobile cranes and other loading facilities. In the central part of the port, near the old town, there is the 100 m long quay for passenger ships.

An impressive number of passengers make use of the ships and hydrofoils provided by marine transport companies, to sail to Krynica Morska, Frombork, Ostróda and Kaliningrad, Bałtijsk.

Pilot services are available daily from dawn to dusk, except when icedup. Vessels inward-bound [in the Gulf of Kaliningrad (Polish and Russian flag only) or at the pump stations in Osłonka] should contact the Pilot Station at least 12 h in advance of the pilot boarding. Vessels outward-bound should contact The Pilot Station at least 2 h in advance of the pilot boarding.

For radiotelephony connections are VHF Channel 71 and 16
