We reached the center of Elbląg for the first time on board a ship during a trip on the Elbląg Canal. When we got off the waterfront, our first impression was a combination of wonder and surprise: what a beautiful city and why we never came to see Elbląg... We visited Elbląg once again during a cruise along the Żuławy Loop. This time we walked the streets of the new Old Town, despite the bad weather. On our third visit, the weather was great and we were able to admire the city. I invite you to view photos from Elbląg.
The Old Town in Elbląg looks very impressive from the bird's eye view. Despite war damage and unfair treatment after the war, the city is rebuilt in a beautiful style. The most interesting monuments: Market Gate, St. Nicholas, the former Dominican monastery with the EL Gallery Art Center, Library and a museum in the buildings that remained after the Teutonic castle. It is also worth seeing the church path - a narrow passage between tenement houses.
There are two drawbridges in the center of the city at the Zygmunt August Boulevards. The Lower Bridge, also known as the High Bridge with a clearance of 2.8 m and the Upper (or Niski Bridge) with a clearance of 1.8 m. There is a small marina between these bridges. We stayed here during our cruise on Żuławy Loop .
During the drone flight over the center of Elbląg, my attention was drawn to the magnificent building of St. Nicholas.
The Stary Rynek (Old Market Square) is one of the oldest streets in the city - it was marked out as early as 1234. The street from the north is closed by the medieval Market Gate from 1319.
Hundreds of colorful tenement houses with sloping roofs covered with brick tiles surround the monumental cathedral in the new Old Town in Elbląg. The panorama of Elbląg seen from the bird's eye perspective is stunning!
Top-down view of the Zygmunt August Boulevard and the marina in the city center.
St. Nicholas Cathedral in Elbląg is one of the tallest churches in Poland. The tower is 97 meters high and is really impressive. There is an observation deck on the tower, so after climbing 366 stairs you can see the city from above!
The Elbląg River is an ideal communication route. Factories and shipyards were built on its shores.
There are many restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels in the center of the old town on Stary Rynek Street. There is the Hotel and Restaurant Elbląg on the right in the foreground.
Aerial view of the river and the city of Elbląg. The New Old Town in Elbląg is undergoing reconstruction but I must admit that the new buildings look stylish. There is a drawbridge through which you enter the city from the Vistula Lagoon in the foreground.
The Old Town Hall at Stary Rynek 25 in Elbląg. Telephone number to the town hall: +48 55 239 32 78.
There is a Special Pub at the High Drawbridge in Elbląg. There is delicious food and you can drink the iconic Specjal beer.
Evening light illuminates old and new tenement houses at Mostowa Street.
The Elbląg River is 14.5 kilometers long. The river flows out of Lake Druzno and flows into the Vistula Lagoon. There is a marina of Ostróda-Elbląg Żegluga at the Lower Bridge (shown in the photo) from where you can go on a cruise along the Elbląg Canal.
Our photos from Elbląg can be used in: calendars, printouts, postcards, newspapers, magazines, advertisements or on websites. Everyone interested in purchasing a license is invited to contact.
Probably the youngest Polish Old Town pictured from a drone. If you want to fly a drone around Elbląg, you need to carefully check whether the airport zone of the Elbląg Aeroclub is not active. If so, the flight altitude in the city center is limited to 30 meters.
A night photo of the Old Town, the Cathedral and the square with fountains in Elbląg. Shooting the drone after sunset requires no wind conditions. Then you can set exposure times up to a few seconds. It is worth doing a few repetitions because the photos may be blurred.
