Cycle the Wisla Boulevards
Cycle the Wisla Boulevards. Architectural landmarks aside one thing that characterizes the city is its eternal relation with its main river, the Vistula (Wisla). Splitting the city into two main parts & stretching from one end to another, this used to be the city’s main pathway. Today between Dębnicki Bridge on one side all the way to Grunwaldzki Bridge on the other end are the so-called Wisla (Vistula) boulevards ideal for lazy strolls, romantic pic-nicks, running or bike riding, and even chess playing for many of the locals.
The pedestrianized stretch was created at the beginning of the 1900s as a flood control waterway and it eventually turned into the popular recreational public space it is today. Many locals use the riverfront boulevards as a getaway from the city’s hustle and bustle, especially during the Summer months. Probably the best way to see the boulevards is the bicycle, weather permitting of course.
