The Municipality of Malbork
Malbork is a historical city located in Northern Poland at the Nogat River (part of the Vistula river delta) with a population of nearly 39 000 inhabitants. Malbork’s central object of pride is the worlds’ largest castle built of bricks - the Malbork Castle. The biggest gothic fortress of medieval Europe and masterpiece of defensive and residential architecture hosts outstanding collections of amber stones, weaponry, gothic sculptures and ancient objects of everyday use. In 1997 the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork was entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
However, not only the Castle is worth seeing. Malbork offers diverse touristic and recreational attractions and a variety of attractive ways of spending leisure time. The communication positions as well as the vicinity of the Castle induced the local government to initiate the economic revival of the city. Malbork became more friendly to the inhabitants and tourists as a result of several new investments which were aimed at the improvement of the city.
The main motivation to join ELMOS project is to become friendlier with sustainable mobility solutions in everyday traffic. Introducing intermodal transport mean such as pedelecs is interesting experience which has not been yet thoroughly elaborated on in this area of the South Baltic. The Municipality of Malbork will increase not only its knowledge on e-mobility but also prepare a report on mobility habits of the inhabitants within the implementation of the project.
