We were in a small boat for 4 people, it was covered, so the sun wasn't shining on us. The teacher told interesting stories and told what to pay attention to. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend an hour relaxing.

It is worth seeing Krakow and Wawel on the Vistula River. The helmsman explained the history of the bridges to us, we spent the hour-long voyage in a pleasant atmosphere. I was positively surprised by the quietness of the engine.

a great attraction, full of beautiful views of Krakow, from a different perspective

Meeting Point a Bit difficult to find, Bit all together very cool experience
