Cracow - Warsaw

Vistula river.

The Vistula River is the longest river in Poland and connects important historical cities in Poland such as Warsaw, Krakow and Gdansk. The Queen of Polish rivers is a natural river. It forms a landscape that is found nowhere else in Europe. Its course was hardly regulated. It flows through the entire country from the Beskydy Mountains in the south to Gdańsk in the northern part of Poland. The Vistula River is home to many mammals. Here you can meet the rare otter and numerous beaver and muskrats. But the greatest wealth of the river make its wildlife and first of all birds – here you meet both most types simultaneously as well as rare and endangered bird species. On the way we visit ancient and historical sites, e.g. the medieval town of Sandomierz and the Renaissance castle of Baranów. The Vistula flows still in its unregulated river bed.
