cruise for order
The cruise is started in the heart of the city of Elbląg, which will also be our final stop. During the cruise we are given the opportunity to admire the picturesque panorama of the city of Elbląg established in 1246, while heading for the lake of Druzno, not far from the place where until the 9th century there was located the Viking town of Truso. Today we know that it was huge, considering the times, exceptionally important commercial and craft market as well as port on the path combining the Scandinavia as well as the Baltic states with the Southern Europe as well as with Arabic countries. The latest research proves that between the 9th and 10th century it was one of the largest ports of the Northern Europe. In the spring of 1237 in the vicinity of Truso, members of the Teutonic Order under the command of Hermann von Balk erected upon an island at the mouth of the river of Elbląg a small wooden – soil dwelling. When the fortification was destroyed most likely by the tribes of Prussian Pogesanians, past 1240 the Teutonic Knights moved to the location of the today’s Old Town. Today this picturesque town within the exceptionally beautiful surroundings constitutes the final stop of the cruise.
There are 65 places on the ship. During unfavourable weather there exists a possibility to take seats below the deck and admire the site through a window. Ideal trip for persons looking for a while of relaxation as well as to the lovers of beautiful sights created by a human in the harmony with nature.
