Bydgoszcz – Venice of the North

Unique museums, historical architecture combined with modern buildings, international festivals and water trams from which you can tour the city – these are just some of Bydgoszcz’s assets. It is becoming increasingly easy to get here thanks to an expanding network of air links and new high-speed routes. This city simply has to be seen.

The city with a rich tradition

Bydgoszcz is the capital of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship and the eighth largest city in Poland. Historically, it occupies a part of Kuyavia and is picturesquely situated on the Brda River, the Vistula River and the Bydgoszcz Canal. It is here that important road, rail and water routes (international waterway E70) intersect. There is the Ignacy Jan Paderewski Airport in the city (the journey from the city centre takes about 15 minutes by city bus).

Bydgoszcz is a city with centuries of tradition, which delights tourists above all with its location on the river crossing the city centre. Bydgoszcz is increasingly turning to water. It is in the immediate vicinity of the Brda River that the daily cultural, sporting and business life of the city takes place.
