Meeting point

From the Metro Nauki Kopernik, head towards the Mermaid Monument. Look straight at the Vistula River and on the right side of the water you will see two barges on the water by the boulevard. Go to the first one which has two levels. The entrance to the ship is at the bottom of the barge and the ship will be waiting for you on the other side (from the river). Remember to set the appropriate locations from the link when ordering Uber or Bolt. The ship is located near the Copernicus Science Center. Please contact local provider if a problem arises.

The barge goes slowly, we had a perfect day, with a light breeze; the views are beautiful of the entire Vistula coast, it is not the same as a cruise on the Danube, but the price was very good, about 30 euros for 3 people and I repeat, the perfect day.

Great fun! The boat is an ordinary wooden river - it adds coziness and there is no feeling of a commercial trip. There are chairs, blankets, coffee or tea on the boat. There are open and closed parts of the boat, you can choose where it is more convenient. Very nice and pleasant atmosphere. I highly recommend it. Everyone was satisfied. Now for trips along the Vistula only here

We had trouble finding the departure point but a man on one boat was very helpful and called the skipper. He then picked us up, although the departure time had already passed. That was really great and the skipper also explained a lot to us.
