Lovely little cruise and there was just my husband and I as we booked for later in the evening so it was quite romantic, very reasonably priced.

When viewed from the Vistula River, Krakow allows you to look differently at many aspects of its functionality, architecture and history.

Nice boat trip on bigger boat with explanations in Polish and English. Goes 15 min both sides from the harbour and between.

A very nice atmosphere, a pleasant adventure, a great hour spent on the Vistula River... recommend to everyone ☺️

Super wonderful Wow, very good organization and friendly service
