‘The Chelmno Fortress’

Chełmno is one of the most recent strongholds situated along the Lower Vistula- the initial plans of fortifying the town and its neighbourhood were conceived at the beginning of the 19th century during the Napoleonic Wars by a French Marshal N.L. Davout.
However, the decision of executing the plans was finally made by the German General Staf in 1900. The semicircular fortifying line surrounded the town within a radius of 6-8 km from the south-east, from Klamry through Rybieniec, Stolno, Małe Czyste, Dorposz Szlachecki, Watorowo, to Kiełp. After the first phase of the construction was completed, (state of 1910), the defence line with the length of 25 km consisted of 8 forts, 4 infantry shelters and two posts for artillery corps in Stolno and Małe Czyste.
On 4 June 1910 Chełmno was officially nominated a stronghold by the Ministry of War. The construction works from 1901-1914 demarcated the basic outline of the fortifying line around Chełmno, which clearly shows that the focal point of the layout was the ferry stop on the Vistula River. The main fortifying line was marked by (the) forts and (the) infantry shelters. When World War I was over, the Pomerania on the Vistula with the stronghold Chełmno was bestowed in the Polish state under the terms of the Treaty of Versailles and The Polish Military Mission formally took over the objects of the fortifications of Chełmno in January 1920. During World War II, the Nazis developed the fortifications even further.
They are in perfect condition, mostly due to the fact they were hardly used in military operations. After World War II they frequently served as a place for exploding misfires and storing pesticides.
