Fort IV named after Stanisław Żółkiewski is one of the largest and most important forts of nineteenth-century Prussian Fortress Toruń. It was built in the years 1878-1884 as the main fort, the third in the series, was the base for the 500-person crew (2 infantry companies) and service department for the number of 14 medium- and 15-22 heavy caliber cannons (total about 800 soldiers and officers), and reached the peak of fortress engineering. In 1894 it received the name Yorck, commemorating the Prussian General Johann David Yorck von Wartenburg. It never participated in combat operations, thus has been preserved in very good condition. In 1920, together with the entire Fortress, was taken over by Polish army in good condition, but without the equipment. In 1926 Fort IV received the present name. From the early 1990s is made available to the public.
