If you want to be alone or are just a nature lover like myself, you might consider a stroll next to the Długa canal. It’s a bit similar to my other article (river Czarna) but is less isolated, is closer to the city centre and goes through the city district of Białołęka.
Start your walk on the bridge on ul. Chudoby and move North down the river. It’s a great place to go biking, fly a kite or walk a dog. You will also see some hang-gliders landing on the meadows. You will definitely meet some people – but not too many. If you walk quite far, you will end up near Kanał Żerański, also a great place for water sports like rowing and canoeing, and fishing. On a sunny day, you will see the people of Warsaw sunbathe and play badminton here.
The next bus stop to this place is Chudoby 02.
