You can see concerts here, check out the re-done graineries, an art gallery, and museums nearby. The opera house is also right there. We've sat in Mill Island, and just relaxed on a hot day while there was a group of young bands performing. It was nice to see lots of families just walking by and pass the time. There's... More

Mill island boasts buildings (converted old granaries, mills and houses) that house the best of Bydgoszcz museums, a very good art gallery, and have excellent views of the Farra church and the Opera House. You can eat Karkowka (pork neck) or pstrag (trout) on a... More

The place has been changing for quite some time just to blossom as a spring flower. It's an excellent place to sit and relax. It has a grass field where you can just do nothing and be happy. Artificial beach in front of the Brda Canal, the view to Opera Nova and the museum just at the stone 's throw... More

Exellent area of grass, canal scattered with museums, pubs and extensive seating areas> Also boat trips available along the river that borders one side of the island. Dogs not allowed. Overall very pleasant family orientated area worth a visit.

This is the best place to hang out in Bydgoszcz, both during summer and during winter! Newly renovated and close to the city center and many good restaurants. Huge fields to have a long walk, and for kids to run and play around. New and really good playground.To sit at the river and chill out was really great. There are... More

The Mill's island is a great place to hang out. Nice park and kids playground and at the riverside, the (very slow) municipal water tram takes you up or down the river for a lazy view of the city. The museums seem nice, but we didn't find time, but the restaurant on the island is good too.
