When in Bydgoszcz do start your trip at the Market Square and stroll down to the river Brda via Mill Island. See the opera house, and go down along the river. Along the route you will find many nice places to eat.

Especially in winter and except for the special occasions like the National Day, the old town is not so 'alive' as you may expect. What makes it live is the variety of restaurants and pubs you can't miss in Bydgoszcz.

Not the largest or most dramatic square in Europe but also very cosy. Always lots of people milling about and lots of places to eat close to here. Has a nice vibe with a dramatically ugly old school central european sculpture.

Boat, waterbike and kayak trips (If you would like to rent sport equipment for a better price I suggest you to go next to Artego arena). I do not know what is about with the pigeons... More

Old Town Square in Bydgoszcz has undergone many improvements and renovations over the years. I could not resist and I had to visit it during my last stay in Bydgoszcz. I also could not resist my favorite restaurant, which is located on the back side of Old Town Square, namely Karczma Młyńska -- a place for some delicious, old-fashioned Polish... More
