what's happening and where is it?
Trip on the Elbląg Canal which runs between Lake Drużno and Jeziorak Lake. There is a 100m difference in water levels due to the steep elevation.The water stretches are broken up by land stretches between the lakes. This is overcome by a series of inclined planes and locks.The inclined planes consist of rail tracks, and the boats are carried on carriages that run on the rails.
Quite a feat of engineering! More info here for those who are interested:
I've been on here for a boat cruise;
Did you do the whole length of the canal? Apparently the return trip takes about 11 hours!
