— ABOUT THE TRAIL
The Gdańsk Water Supply Trail showcases the technical prowess and teaches science of its immediate surroundings. Two historic underground water reservoirs and one modern water tower with a unique observation terrace allow you to gain a completely new view of the city. The symbol of the trail is a bat – an elusive, mysterious and rare mammal, that chose one of the facilities of the Gdańsk’s Water Supply Trail – Stara Orunia Reservoir – for its habitat.
The implementation of the Gdańsk Water Supply Trail was co-financed from the Regional Operational Programme for Pomorskie Voivodeship for 2014-2020 funds.
— TRAIL HISTORY
Preparing Gdańsk’s Water Supply Trail for tourists was made possible through the cooperation between the employees of the municipal water supply company GIWK, and industrial heritage fans, whose aim was to preserve memorabilia related to the history of Gdańsk’s water supply systems in the best possible form. Since 2010, historical documentation has been collected and old waterworks monuments have been restored (from wooden pipelines, wells, commemorative boulders, cast iron fittings to 18th century documentation and a 150-year-old letter in a bottle found in the Stara Orunia Reservoir).
The Gdańsk Water Supply Trail was co-financed by the Regional Operational Programme for Pomorskie Voivodeship for 2014-2020 funds. Project’s cost, in total, equals 8 738 279,80 PLN, with 4 700 520.00 PLN eligible costs. The granted co-financing covered 70% of eligible costs, that is 3 290 364,00 PLN. During project implementation, walking paths and viewpoints were built – these developments were financed by the Municipality of Gdańsk.
