Photographer's Note

The inland waterway route linking Elblag with Ostroda is an attraction unique in Europe, although there is another waterway of this type in the United States (but in US don't work). The Elblag Canal, which is 81 km. long, was built in 1848-60. It runs through a long chain of lakes, lying at different heights above sea level, which are joined together by manmade cuttings. Overall the difference in water level is almost 100 meters. It is possible to sail through tanks to two locks and five slipways, though which ships are carried dry on rails on special platforms.
