The Vistula is the longest river in Poland and connects important historical cities of Poland such as Kraków, Warsaw and Gdańsk. The queen of Polish rivers is a natural river. It forms a landscape that can no longer be found anywhere else in Europe. Their course was hardly regulated; one can still observe the formation of islands and the washing out of the shores. It crosses the whole 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 both the most species at once, 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 Kraków 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 local nature and bird sanctuaries offer the opportunity to observe nature. At the beginning of the trip, you can also take a detailed tour of Kraków, the "Florence of the North".
