The Vistula is the longest river in Poland and connects important historical cities in Poland such as Krakow, Warsaw and Gdansk. The queen of Polish rivers is a natural river. It forms a landscape that can no longer be found anywhere in Europe. Its course was hardly regulated; You can still see the formation of islands and the washing of the banks. It crosses the entire country from the Beskids in the south to Gdańsk in the north. The Vistula is home to many mammals. Here you can meet the rare otters as well as numerous beavers and muskrats. But the greatest wealth of the river is its birds - here you can meet most species at the same time as well as rare and endangered bird species.

If you want to get to know the world on the Vistula, we offer you an eight-day bike tour from Krakow to Warsaw along the Vistula. On the way you will visit old and historical places, such as the medieval town of Sandomierz and the Renaissance castle of Baranów. The Vistula still flows unregulated in its riverbed today. The nature and bird protection reserves there offer the opportunity to observe nature. At the beginning of the trip you can also take advantage of a detailed tour of Krakow, the “Florence of the North”.

The landmarks of Krakow are the Cloth Hall (so-called Sukiennice) in the middle of the square and the famous Gothic St. Mary's Church, from whose tower the Tower Song is played every day.
