The Vistula River

The bank of the Vistula River is perfect for picnicing, while the river itself provides a space for boats to dock, and a beer to be had upon the water.  Bike paths also run along the banks in several directions, enjoyable no matter which way you go, but with a great ending point if you head out to Tyniec.

View the river from above at Wawel Castle, or even by the famous Krakow Dragon’s Den!

No matter what you do, if the weather is nice, an entire day can be spent relaxing by the river, feeling far away from the tourist crowds, despite the fact they are buzzing about just a few meters above you in the castle courtyard.

If you’re lucky you’ll catch a festival here! Or come down after dark and enjoy a DJ set under the decks of one of the many boats with bars and/or restaurants.

The views are even pretty in winter…
