The area of today's Ełk region belonged to the land of the mysterious tribe of Jatvingians in the early Middle Ages. They established the first watchtower on the island on the lake. In the same place the Teutonic Knights built a small castle in the years 1398 to 1406. It was strategically placed and provided local people who were settling near the castle with good protection.

The Ełk Lake District stretches over vast picturesque forests, lakes, hillocks and morainal valleys and plains. The area is rich in fauna. The backwoods are inhabited by roe deer, stags, wild boars, hares, polecats, martens, and even wolves in winter. On the marshy land near Żelazki one can see elk, and in the Bartosze forests, beavers. And the lakes are rich in numerous species of fish. Much of the lakeland is protected area. All of this makes the region a paradise for anglers, mushroom pickers as well as for lovers of long strolls or bike or canoe rides and skiing.
