Bydgoszcz Old Town Walk

Bydgoszcz is the capital of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship and the eighth largest city in Poland, picturesquely situated by the river Brda, Vistula and the Bydgoszcz Canal. It may not be a popular destination in European travel itineraries, but is one of Poland’s best kept secrets, thanks to its postcard perfect views, a wonderful museum island, quaint waterfront, charming footbridges, old granaries, and even its own brand of Art Nouveau architecture.
