Zegluga Ostrodzko- Elblaska


Żegluga Ostródzko-Elbląska Sp. z o.o. (previously Zakład Komunikacji Miejskiej) – an enterprise being a budgetary unit of the city, organizing ship cruises on the Ostróda-Elbląg Canal and public transport by public transport in Ostróda. The company also offers transport services with tourist coaches, fuel sales and runs a car wash station.

The first attempts to launch public transport were taken at the turn of 1959/60. For this purpose, a Chausson bus was purchased from the demobil. Unfortunately, in the next two years the bus was standing waiting for renovation. Due to the fact that one bus would not be able to transport employees to work at the same time from several directions, local PKS was asked for help, which launched several courses from Warlit Wielkie and the Plebiscite housing estate.
In 1973, under the leadership of Professor Jan Podolski, a “public transport study for the city of Ostróda” was made. In the same year a committee was set up to organize and launch public transport. The commission’s tasks included determining the course of the line, designating the bays and stops, preparing the parking plan and accepting drivers for work. A year later, Ostróda received five San buses game judi online terpercaya .

By a resolution of the Municipal National Council of May 21, 1974, the Municipal Transport Department was established at the Poviat Enterprise for Municipal and Housing Economy. The resolution established the number of routes and the price of tickets, which was PLN 2. The first buses to the city street poker uang asli terpercaya left on June 17, 1974. The main task of the plant during this period was the delivery of employees for the construction of Zakłady Mięsne w Morlinach.

From July 1, 1975, in connection with the reorganization of the state administration, ZKM moved from PPGKiM to the Voivodship Municipal Transport Company in Olsztyn. In October 1976 from the WPKM the plant received an inter-city bus type Autosan. A year later, another three buses arrived on the state.

In 1984, after nearly four years of work, a new bus depot at ul. Grunwald. At the same time, the outdated buses Jelcz 272 MEX and two Autosany were withdrawn. In their place came from the WPKM buses after the main repair.

The popularity of public transport can be proved by the number of passenger transports from the following years:

  • 1974 – 506 thousand passengers
  • 1975 – 960 thousand
  • 1980 – 3.35 million
  • 1983 – 4.5 million

In subsequent years, the depot continued to expand. A parking yard has been hardened, warehouses and a petrol station have been built.
December 31, 1991 liquidation was subjected to PKM [1] in Ostróda, in the place of which a municipal budgetary establishment was established under the name “Zakład Komunikacji Miejskiej w Ostródzie” based in Ostróda, which took over all assets and liabilities of the liquidated enterprise.

In 1999 ZKM bought a new Jelcz 120M bus. Another new class bus was the Kapena Thesi City bought in 2002. Starting from 2004, the plant scrapped old Jelcz PR110, replacing it with younger MAN and Neoplan brand buses. Jelcz vehicles have been scrapped.

In September 2006, in the car accident, the long-time director of the Association, Waldemar Nalewajko, died.

On January 1, 2011 Żegluga Ostródzko – Elbląska Sp. Z o. O. Was established on the basis of the liquidated to transform the Municipal Transport Company. z o.o., which took over movable property, cash, receivables and liabilities of the plant being decommissioned [2].

Waldemar Graczyk became the chairman of the board of the company, which was canceled by the Supervisory Board on November 12, 2012



Ostróda Castle

The first Teutonic stronghold in the area comes from 1270.[2] This was a wooden structure,

ostroda castle

located on a former Prussian gord, located on a small island in between the waters of the Lake Dwęrcki and the River Drwęca. The castle in Ostróda was at first the headquarters for the Starosta of Ostróda, who was subordinate to the authority of the Komtur of Dzierzgoń. A new stronghold was built between 1350 and 1370. The Komtur of Ostróda Günter von Hohenstein is known for raising the castle in Ostróda and Teutonic Castle in Świecie. In contrast with the castle in Świecie, the Ostróda castle had no towers, which were rare in Teutonic architecture up until the fourteenth century. In 1381, two castle structures existed, a new and old, which were situs judi poker both burned down by Lithuanian Duke Kęstutis.[3]


From a Teutonic scripture: “…castrum Osterode novum cum antiquoplene exustum est” – (the new castle in Ostróda together with the old one was completely burned down).

Getting ready for the new war with the Kingdom of Poland, the castle was surrounded by a moat. The moat was filled with water. The moat was filled in with soil in the eighteenth century. The access point from the east of the castle was by a bascule bridge, which led to a granite gate. The village surrounding the castle served means for keeping storage, brewery and a forge. In the Battle of Grunwald the castle was used to support the defence against the Polish army.[4] The castle became greatly diminished in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During World War II the castle was burned down by the Wehrmacht Army. The castle’s reconstruction began in 1974. Currently, the castle houses a gallery, library and a museum.[5]

Ostróda Castle

At the site of an orig­i­nal Old Pruss­ian set­tle­ment on an is­land at the river delta where the Drwęca river flows into Lake Drwęca the town of judi poker terpercaya Ostróda evolved. In 1270 the Teu­tonic Order began con­struct­ing wooden earth­works to con­trol the orig­i­nal set­tle­ment as well as de­fend the ini­tial Mazurian and Ger­man set­tlers. The knights named the new town Os­terode after Os­terode am Harz in Lower Sax­onyGer­many (now a sis­ter citywith Ostróda). Be­tween 1349-1370 the Order re­placed the wood-and-earth fort with a stone cas­tle. The town, whose char­ter tra­di­tion­ally dates to 1335, quickly be­came a re­gional ad­min­is­tra­tive cen­ter for the Order.

After the Bat­tle of Grun­wald in 1410, Klaus von Döhrin­gen con­quered Os­terode’s cas­tle and de­liv­ered the town to the vic­to­ri­ous Władysław II of Poland. The Pol­ish king brought the body of Ul­rich von Jungin­gen there be­fore trav­el­ling to be­siege Marien­burg (Mal­bork); the re­group­ing Teu­tonic Knights re­cap­tured Ostróda a few months later.

Dur­ing the Thir­teen Years’ War (1454–1466), Os­terode was re­peat­edly cap­tured by both the Poles and Pruss­ian Con­fed­er­a­tion on one side and the Teu­tonic Knights on the other. From 1525 until 1701 Os­terode was part of Ducal Prus­sia, a fief of Poland, and after 1701 part of King­dom of Prus­sia. The ma­jor­ity of in­hab­i­tants were Protes­tant and the Evan­gel­i­cal church books date back to 17th cen­tury. In 1818 it be­came the seat of a Kreis (dis­trict) within the King­dom of Prus­sia. In 1871 Os­terode was in­cluded in the newly formed Ger­man Reich.

Dur­ing World War I and the 1914 Bat­tle of Tan­nen­berg, Gen­eral Paul von Hin­den­burghad his 8th Army head­quar­ters at the Os­terode schoolhouse.

Os­terode lost its pre-war Jew­ish pop­u­la­tion in the Holo­caust. Most of the Os­terode cit­i­zens had fled dur­ing the evac­u­a­tion of East Prus­sia, when on 21 Jan­u­ary 1945 Os­terode was cap­tured by the So­viet Red Army with­out fight­ing. How­ever, about 70% of the town was de­stroyed by arson at­tacks af­ter­wards. With the con­quest by the So­viet Union and the Pots­dam Agree­ment, the town be­came part of Poland and the re­main­ing Ger­man pop­u­la­tion was ex­pelled.

While it was pre­vi­ously in Ol­sz­tyn Voivode­ship from 1975 to 1998, Ostróda has been sit­u­ated in the Warmian-Ma­surian Voivode­ship since 1999.
