We never thought such nice place exists in Bydgoszcz, we associated this city more with post-industrial architecture, while Wyspa Młyńska is sort jewel of the crown, dotted with coutless numbers of museums (all branches of same local museum, called Muzeum Okręgowe), old and very old granaries, but looking very nice), also a large play area, and amphitheater for outdoor events. Very nice feature with Młynówka stream, which runs freely alongside some of those old granaries - witch determined wealth of the city in past centuries, and now are into cultural role. For those, who wonder what is an island doing in city far from any seas - this is artificial island, one of the effects of the oldest canal in Poland. When they built Bydgoszcz Canal they cut off the old riverbed of Brda river (todays Młynówka) and replace it with a new part, where Brda is today. And granaries were built at both, new and old rivers.

Close to Mill's Island, you will find a lot of restaurants and bars, and the island itself features a little Venice and a little of green for a nice walk after or before the dinner.

pleasant place to sit and watch the locals going about their business. Couple of bars with terraces overlooking the island by the canal.

Mill island by the Old Town was Bydgoszcz’s hive of industry from Medieval times. There are a few mill buildings standing here from the 1800s. They have been spruced up and turned into attractions. Island has green spaces bordering the peaceful loop in the Brda, which has clear water and waterfowl on its banks. During summertime you can rent a rowboat, potter around the quaint specialty shops or sip a cold beer outside in one of many restaurants.

A true oasis in the city center. Beautiful Island with grass to play and rest, but with awesome view on interesting architecture. You can't say you saw Bydgoszcz if you haven't been there!

Sat on Mill Island on our last night in Bydgoszcz and took in the lovely atmosphere of a concert from the opera house!
The whole area was beautiful. Really picturesque.

It's a river island.easily reachable by bridges from the old town and main square.the main part is a totally romantic green park close to the slowly flowing river. clear water so you can see the fish and water plants and lots of ducks .you can rent a boat there. There are also huge historic buildings as the island was home to an important mint/ minting coins.there are several museums and you are very close to the new opera building .there is not that much to see in bydgosc. But that romantic island plus the main square with trendy restaurants and the surrounding small streets are definitely worth a slow sightseeing day.enjoy the quiet atmosphere
