T he Vistula Boulevard is the biggest rediscovery in Warsaw since 2010. Although Warsaw has been on the Vistula for centuries and has over 20 km of coastline, its proximity to the river was forgotten, especially between 1990 and 2010. Finally, the city decided to revitalise the Vistula and renovated almost the entire west bank. Where there were only concrete stairs before, there are now coffee houses, boats, cycle paths and a lot of space for strollers. In summer, the focus of evening life in Warsaw shifts from the city centre to the Vistula.
We recommend a walk from the north of the boulevard at the height of the Old Town southwards to the harbour, where there is also a small sandy beach. In between, guests can expect dining facilities, recreational oases and, of course, beautiful views.
In contrast to the western shore, the eastern shore is unspoilt, full of nature and numerous smaller and larger sandy beaches.

Guided tour with us
The Vistula Boulevard is 6th on our top 10 list of Warsaw attractions. During our private walking tour Off the beaten path we visit also the Vistula Boulevard. Also the neighbourhood has a lot to offer but is not yet as touristic as we would like to have it, and this we want to change.
