Nice place to have a stroll, this little island at the side of the Old City is a essentially a quiet park where to relax and watch people.

At one time the island was a haven for criminals and was told not a very safe place in the past. Now it is full of families and couples out for a nice summer day/evening. A perfect place to sit and enjoy the weekly free summer concerts at the Opera house just over the river

Nice to take a walk along canal and grab a beer in one of the restaurants/bars. Very pleasant do watch you don't walk on the bike path though.

A island of rest and peace but also lots of activity in the middle of the city. You almost 'transition' onto the island without noticing it. There is still quite some renovation ongoing on the main Mill building but most of the Island looks great. Splendid view on the opera nova too. A pity that jet skis were disturbing the... More

The coal canal from the Vistula River flows through Bydgoszcz. Along both sides of the canal are restaurants and shops and all sorts of attractions. Mill's Island is just past the sluice way for the canal and there is a large grass area where events are held. Much fun fir everyone.

This is a well restored area with great galleries, museums and restaurants. On a sunny day it is an excellent spot to enjoy the best of Bydgoszcz within a pleasant space. Check out the modern art museum, which is well worth visiting.

I you in Bydgoszcz for any reason ease pop in to the centre and enjoy the walk. There is nice selection of coffee shops and pubs with great ice cream too. It's been newly refurbished , but there are also some old building still from the WW2.
