Photographer's Note

That picture was taken on Slipway Katy - on Elblag River Channel.

System of slipways is the unique in the world monument of technology, designed by a German engineer, George J. Steenke. The Canal, built in the years 1848-1881, is 127,5 km long and connects Elbląg with Ostróda. The Canal makes it possible for ships and yachts to cover the route where the difference of water levels between the low-located Drużno Lake and the upper grounds of Iławski Lake District is almost 100 meters. The route: Elbląg - Drużno Lake (0,3 meters above sea level) - Całuny Nowe Slipway - Jelenie (Deer) Slipway - Oleśnica Slipway - Kąty Slipway - Buczyniec Slipway - Pniewskie Lake (99,5 meters above sea level) - Sambród Lake - Małdyty - Ruda Woda (Duckie) Lake - Ilińsk lake (Jelonek) - Miłomłyn lock - Green (Zielona) lock - Drwęckie Lake - Ostróda.
