02-May-2001 -- Confluence 54N 021E is located on the outskirts of the village of Kolno.
Second confluence from a trip of 8
Having covered 81km (316 from Bydgoszcz) passing Dobre Miasto along 54th parallel we got to the village of Kolno at 11:30. We found the confluence 50m away from post-collective farm buildings. The locals looked curiously at strangers walking round with a device in their hands taking pictures. Still, our behaviour was not intriguing enough for them to abandon their job and approach us. After taking the pictures to confirm our visit there, we went on to reach our destination for that day - a hotel in Ketrzyn. On the way we stopped to see a gothic castle in Reszel and in Swieta Lipka (a baroque monastery) which we left soon to escape crowds of tourists.
Having checked in at the hotel we still had time to see Gierloza, i.e. Wolfschanze (Hitler's HQ) and Sztynort - the Lehndorff family mansion. Still beautiful, yet run down. Then back to Ketrzyn via Wegorzewo (round the Mamry Lake) to have some well-earned rest. (mileage - 456km)
