Full description
Krakow is home to a suite of visual delights: from the majestic Wawel Castle to the historic Zwierzyniec and Kazimierz districts, there's plenty to see in this beautiful city. Vistula River cruises remain one of the best ways to discover all that Krakow has to offer. The river flows through the heart of Krakow, which happens to be home to some of the most iconic landmarks in Poland. You'll have the chance not only to see the city's primary attractions, but to fully immerse yourself in the spirit of Krakow thanks to the comfortable pace of the tour. The cruise begins at the foot of Wawel Castle. From there, the boat glides along the picturesque boulevards first in the direction of Zwierzyniec, passing by the Convent of the Norbertine Sisters, the house of the pope John Paul II, and then in direction of Podgórze and Kazimierz districts. Pass well-known sights like Church on the Rock, Mangha Museum, Bernatka Footbridge, and Cricoteka. The tour ends back at the Wawel Castle.

We did the 1 hour tour. That was good, because with the half-hour tour, you only sail to the Norbertinessen Monastery and you don't go to the neighborhoods of Kazimierz and Podgórze. With pleasant music in the background and information about the sights in different languages, it was a wonderful boat trip. Since it was warm that day, we could sit on the top deck. Drinks could be brought downstairs.

We took our trip on the day that we were flying back home as it was a night flight from the airport, so needed to fill in time. This was the ideal trip after checking out of our accommodation. There was commentary on the audio system but it was fairly quiet inside the galley, however on the open top deck it was very clear. Worth doing in my opinion, relaxing too after the bustle of the main square.
