Discover Gdańsk from a water perspective on board a replica of a Polish river boat used for over 400 years. An intimate, wooden and spacious 12-seater boat will take you to places unavailable to large ships, and thanks to the low number of passengers you'll feel at ease and special. You will start the cruise from the former areas of the Gdańsk Shipyard, which once was a workplace for nearly 18,000 people and unavailable to visitors for over 170 years. Next, you'll go on a cruise on Motława - the center of the Old Town. You will see many tourist attractions, including the ruins of the Teutonic castle, water gates leading to the city, the famous wooden crane from the 15th century, charming old tenement houses and their new setting. You will follow a route that will also show you monuments and new buildings of the Ołowianka Island and the Granary Island. This trip is also a unique and only opportunity to see up close specialist vessels, Gdansk cranes.
