In this week’s Webber’s World, our intrepid explorer finds himself 30km east of Elbląg in a rambling old manor house set amongst silent forest paths, misty morning fields, grazing wild deer, and a snuffling rabbit named David. Welcome to Dwór Dawidy.
Easily accessed by a picturesque trip on PKP (approximately three hours from Warsaw with a change at Malbork), Elbląg is a town that although remaining somewhat off the radar, nonetheless warrants lavishing with attention.

Using ground-penetrating radar to try and identify the site, archaeologists say the likelihood of finding skeletons was high.
They used to call him the fat Hugh Grant, now they just call him fat. But that’s probably because of all the high (and low) end eateries he frequents during his travels around Poland. Anyway, without further ado, join TFN columnist Alex Webber as he takes you inside Webber’s World.
Elbląg is one of the oldest cities in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship and the delightful old town is a place that every tourist should visit.
