No other river in Europe is like the Vistula flowing through Warsaw. Its natural banks, inhabited by wild fowl, are right next to the city’s boulevards. In the summer, the weekend city life comes alive here – trendy bars and clubs, charming bistros, and outdoor events attract both city dwellers and tourists, while the sandy beaches are the perfect place to chill out. A cruise down the river to see the city from the water is also an interesting option.
The Vistula Boulevards are the ideal place for a stroll or a bicycle trip. The exceptional atmosphere of this site is created by the sail-shaped lamp posts and pergolas that offer shade on sunny days. You can stop to rest on one of the stone sculptures in the form of fish and other water creatures or climb up to the overlook. The promenade is adapted for the needs of people with disabilities and families with children.
Multimedia Fountain Park
Skwer I Dywizji Pancernej (Podzamcze)
Multimedia Fountain Park, located on the left bank of the Vistula at the foot of the Old Town, is a wonderful spot to visit on Friday or Saturday evenings. Once night falls, the show begins, with water, lights, and sounds, creating a colourful and harmonious display.

Cruises on the Vistula
Cruises on the Vistula – the Vistula is navigable! To quickly get to the other side, you can take a free ferry. And to look at the city from a totally different perspective, it is possible to take a water tram. If you have a whole day to spend, then why not take a boat on a cruise outside the city? www.ztm.waw.pl
