History of Augustow Canal
Augustow Canal is an outstanding hydraulic engineering installation of the 19th century, one of Europe’s largest canals, which has been included onto the preliminary UNESCO World Heritage List. There are only three canals like this in the world: Caledonian Canal in the UK, Gota Canal in Sweden, and Augustow Canal, which is located in Poland and Belarus.
The waterway with the total length of 102km starts at Lake Serwy near Polish Augustow and stretches virtually to Belarusian Grodno. The artificial canals 45km long have connected 11 rivers (35km) and seven lakes (22km). The idea to build the canal was born in the 1760-1770s in the age of King Stanislaw August Poniatowski. In 1824 the Augustow Canal project was approved by Emperor Alexander I. The construction took 15 years.
