Property description

  A unique monument of the fortification works, Wisłoujście Fortress, is located in direct proximity to the Westerplatte peninsula. The name Wisłoujście originates from times when the mouth of the Vistula River was located directly north of the Wisłoujście Fortress.   The place used to be important from the strategic point of view. It was used for controlling vessel traffic in Gdańsk. The former port in Gdańsk was located on the Motława River, several km from the seashore, giving Wisłoujście the key position securing Gdańsk from the side of the sea against an unexpected attack by the enemy. The strategic importance of the place was appreciated very early. A watchtower could have existed here under the reign of Pomeranian dukes.   The fortress served military functions until the end of the 1st World War. In the inter-war period, it completely lost its character, serving as the base of sailing clubs. In 1945, Wisłoujście shared the fate of many other historical sites in Gdańsk, and was almost entirely destroyed.   From 1947, the Wisłoujście Fortress belongs to the History Museum of the City of Gdańsk. Due to this, it is under constant archaeological and conservation works. The availability of the fortress to tourists is restricted.
