Unique museums, breathtaking architectural designs placed side by side with the Art Nouveau buildings, international festivals and the water, with its trams, boats and other vessels which entice and welcome one and all to have a ride and admire the city from the board. It's all there, in Bydgoszcz, the city not to be missed.

The Brda River, flowing through the city, is fringed by the many tourist spots, appreciated by the holiday-makers and locals alike as it does not only offer a chance to have a romantic stroll along its banks, but also see a lot of advanced hydrotechnical objects.

Undoubtedly, the strongest points of the city are countless sports events such as Triathlon Bydgoszcz, Bydgoszcz Water (swimming competition), Great Rowing Regatta, or a combination of water and music festivals, i.e. River of Music, or Bydgoszcz Water Festival, just to name the few.
