Dybowo: Forgotten Dybowo
Diebowen was founded in 1669 south of Mikołajki, on the Dybowski Róg peninsula. Its area bordered with Lake Mikołajskie and Śniardwy. The settlement changed its name twice – in 1938 at Dommelhof, and then in 1945 at Dybowo. Currently, there are ruins of a German farm. According to the records of Countess Marion Gräfin Dönhoff, there was a beautiful manor house, inhabited in 1888-1945 by the German family Schilke. In the years 1943-1945, there was also an Abwehr institution named “Walli”, which dealt with economic intelligence on the Eastern Front. It is said that Yakov Yugashvili, son of Stalin, was staying here in captivity. At the end of the XX. century, there was a sailing center here, where sailors could stop for the night, wandering the Great Masurian Lakes Trail with their yachts.
