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.
