Historic technical monuments

The Elblag Canal, built in 1850-1872, is a unique historic canal. It measures 62.5 km and can carry vessels with up to 50 tonnes displacement using a series of five locks, along which boats are rolled on special platforms.

Hajnowka, on the eastern end of Bialowieza Forest, is well known for its narrow-gauge railway, one of several dozen lines across the country that use historical rolling stock.

In Wolsztyn, there is an operational steam engine from 1908, the oldest in Poland. Europe’s last steam engines service passenger traffic along the Sroda Commuter Railway.
