Drwęckie Lake

Drwęckie Lake is located in the Ostróda poviat, and in fact to a large extent in the city of Ostróda. For this reason, access is very easy. The city is crossed by the S7 expressway and a large railway route. The city itself is the main base for visitors to the area and it seems good. The entire northern part of the lake is surrounded by Liwskie Forests. Thanks to this, you can also relax in the area by bike, and not just by the water.

Drwęckie Lake is quite large. The area is 880 hectares. The maximum depth is 22 meters. It is a gutter lake, which is typical of the Iława Lake District. It consists of two gutters. The first latitudinal 12 km long and the second northern 5 km long. From the south, the lake is connected to two more: Smordy and Morliny, of low touristic importance. In the east, the Pauzeński Canal (part of the Elbląg Canal) leads through the Pauzeńskie Lake to the Szeląg Wielki Lake. Around the half of the latitudinal part, the second part of the Elbląg Canal flows into. The Drwęca River also flows through the lake. On the northern part of the lake is the island of Ostrów, although locals call it the island of Orzechowa.

Lake Drwęckie has the main center of sunbathing in Ostróda. Here is a vast city beach. It is sanded and offers quite a bridge. As for beaches in cities, there is free parking, but in season it is too small. Behind the beach is a huge hotel complex. Construction takes far too long, but there are chances for completion. On the opposite side there is a marina. Due to the fact that the lake is large and connected with others, it is an excellent base for relaxing on a boat. The entire urban part of the lake is surrounded by a neat promenade. It is a great place for a walk or to visit a tavern.

The city offers complete tourist infrastructure. However, those who prefer peace can go to one of the holiday resorts in the north. Lake Drwęckie in the west and south is swampy and not conducive to sunbathing. However, tourists can ride a bicycle over the historic railway bridge and get to the Northwest shore along the paths of the Livonian Forest.

Fishing on the lake is permitted. A fishing card is required and a special permit is required for fishing in the western part. The host of this side of the lake (Samborowska part) is Gospodarstwo Rybackie w Warlitach. Rather, you have to fish from a boat because the banks are marshy. The lake has perch, pike, bream, roach, tench and eel. It seems that pike is the most desirable target, because there is a lot of it and it can be big.

Drwęckie Lake is an excellent tourist destination. Clean water and the infrastructure provided by the city will certainly please many vacationers. There is also a place to rest in silence. Good access from all over Poland is very encouraging.
