From Rybina to the Baltic Sea, get away from it all on a waterway cruise in Poland

You’ll set off on your house­boat at a slow, gen­tle pace, giv­ing you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to admire Poland’s trea­sures. Here, as else­where, you’ll be able to embrace all the joys of water­way cruis­ing : cycling along the tow­pathsdis­cov­er­ing the Pol­ish riv­er her­itage, impro­vised stop-offs to chat with farm­ers and oth­er hol­i­day­mak­ers, going through the locks, … Your Pol­ish water­way cruise will also pro­vide you with a com­plete change of scenery, bring­ing you clos­er to the tra­di­tions and folk­lore of a coun­try still unspoilt by mass tourism. A few days’ hol­i­day with your fam­i­ly or sev­er­al weeks with friends : it’s up to you to choose. Make the most of this region of Rybi­na to suc­cumb to the charm of the Baltic coast.

Waterway tourism – a holiday full of feeling and emotion

Of course, no water­way cruise from Rybi­na would be com­plete with­out a vis­it to the region­al cap­i­tal : Danzig or Gdan­sk. You’ll mar­vel at a vis­it to this his­toric city, through which the Mot­la­va Riv­er mean­ders. Take in the impres­sive Saint Mary’s Church and don’t for­get to pause in the impos­ing Town Hall Square. You’ll be able to vis­it many oth­er Pol­ish her­itage trea­sures dur­ing your cruise, choos­ing your pre­ferred sites : the town of Drewni­ca with its famous arcad­ed hous­es or per­haps the Teu­ton­ic Fortress of Mal­bork, the largest brick cas­tle in Europe.
