General information:
Tolkmicko is a fishing harbour and a health resort situated on the southern shore of Vistula Lagoon. Population is about 2,830. Originally it was a settlement inhabited by an old Prussian tribe, the Warmians (Ermelanders). A massive fortified camp built by them still exists. Having subdued the area, the Teutonic Knights built a castle here, around which a settlement arose. The first written record about Tolkmicko (known this time as Tolkemit) dates from 1326. In 1350 it became a municipality and was defended by a line of strong walls. While under Polish rule (1453-1772) the town suffered destruction several times during the wars with the Teutonic Knights and with Sweden. After the partition of Poland, Tolkmicko fell under German rule (1772-1945).
From Tolkmicko the road runs through fine hilly country to Frombork. Town is connected to the general railway system. There is a fishing boats base and small boat building yard. The fishing harbour was built in 1862-64. Before the First World War local fishing fleet numbered 120 fishing boats. Nowdays it is the largest harbour of Vistula Lagoon.
In the harbour basin Eastern Quay serves fishing boats and is equipped with a boat slipway. There is Coastal Rescue Station with a life-saving vessel which may also be used as a tug. She is kept in readiness close NE of the harbour entrance, where there is also a metal observation tower. Western Quay (presently renovated) is used by passenger vessels. It was the only one quay on Vistula Lagoon, equipped with a railway siding. Cargo barges could moor at it. Tolkmicko serviced cargo ship traffic which is seasonal connected with the lagoon icing. 2,120t of coal from Russia was unloaded in Tolkmicko in 1996. The historical buildings of Tolkmicko include a Gothic church from the 14th century and the tenement houses from the 18th century.
