A unique cruise along the water vein of Krakow, the Wisla river, is a real treat for those who are looking for new thrills and appreciate good adventure. Indeed, admiring Krakow from the deck of "Nimfa", the oldest Wisla ship still in operation, or "Orka", or the catamaran is an unforgettable experience. Starting from the royal castle, Wawel, the ship can take you as far as Tyniec monastery, making the cruise a real joy for both adults and children. And if you would like to make the the river safari even more thrilling, you can book a cruise at night or accompanied by artistic show and music. A standard cruise to Tyniec lasts ca. 3 hours, with a 30 min. stop in Tyniec abbey (Mon-Sat "Orka", Sun "Nimfa"). Krakow cruises last ca. 1 hour (Mon-Sun 10:00-16:00). Catamaran cruises for individual tourists last ca. 30 min. Discounts for children, children under 3 - admission free. Individual rental of the ship is also possible, including catering and special services.

If you want to see only 500m of the wistla, the nimfa will be your thing. For some unknown reason the nimfa kept turning after 500 m, maybe the wheel was stuck?? Out guide spoke only swedish luckely for her
Unforgettable? Forget it! That was one boring boat ride, not much to see and zero explanation. Lady showing us the way to the 'cruise' spoke hardly any English and seemed offended that we didn't understand her Polish. Captain was friendly enough and kept us all afloat, so two stars for that.
A great way to enjoy this fabulous weather right now - get away from the heat of the city!
