Elblag

Historic Sites Sightseeing Museums
Elbląg is a city in northern Poland on the eastern edge of the Żuławy region with 124,257 inhabitants (December 31, 2011). It is the capital of Elbląg County and has been assigned (since 1999) to the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. Previously it was the capital of Elbląg Voivodeship (1975–1998) and a county seat within Gdańsk Voivodeship (1945–1975).Geographical locationElbląg is located about 55km south-east of Gdańsk and 90km south-west of Kaliningrad. The city is a port on the river Elbląg, which flows into the Vistula Lagoon about 10km to the north, thus giving the city access to the Baltic Sea via the Russian-controlled Strait of Baltiysk. The Old Town is located on the river Elbląg connecting Lake Drużno to the Vistula Lagoon, about 10km from the lagoon and 60km from Gdańsk.Modern cityThe German Elbing was almost totally destroyed at the end of World War II. The city became the Polish Elbląg after the war, when the area was ceded to Poland under border changes promulgated at the Potsdam Conference. Parts of the inner city were gradually rebuilt, and around 2000 rebuilding was begun in a style emulating the previous architecture, in many cases over the same foundations and utilizing old bricks and portions of the same walls. The western bank part of the old city is now completely gone.
