Fuleda [fuˈlɛda] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Giżycko, within Giżycko County, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, in northern Poland.[1] It lies approximately 9 kilometres (6 mi) north-west of Giżycko and 83 km (52 mi) north-east of the regional capital Olsztyn. Before 1945 the area was part of Germany (East Prussia). The village has a population of 30. Fuleda was set up in 1505 as one of few royal villages in Masurian region belonging to the Polish royal family. Since 1561 it was mainly populated by Polish farmers. In 1668, the Prussian Prince Frederick Wilhelm (vassal of the Polish king) donated the village (Faulhoeden) to Johann von Tettau. For some period, the village was managed by Polish nobles. Until the end of the Second World War, Fuleda belonged to baron von Schenk zu Tautenberg from Doba. At present, Fuleda is a part of a unique bird reserve of lake Dobskie with crystal water and wild environment, a part of EU Nature 2000 environmental protection programme.
