When I first visited Port Czerniakowski, I remember feeling like I had left the city and found myself in Mazury (Lake District of Poland). It’s one of three harbors in Warsaw, although it’s the only one where leisure and touristic life is still going on.
It’s a place where everybody can find something interesting. It’s a perfect spot for all water sport fans. You can rent a kayak or motorboat there. You can also go on a cruise on the Vistula River to see the beautiful panorama of the city with the Royal Castle and the Old Town in the foreground. I recommend for that the reconstructed traditional wooden boats that were used for transport on Vistula in the past. You can feel a bit like flisak (that’s how people who transported commodities were called) and jump in on the deck of szkuta Dar Mazowsza (a punt called “the Gift of Masovia”) or Taxi Wisła. If you prefer something more extraordinary, you can also go to some island or on a dawn cruise.
Even in autumn there are still many boats in the harbor. In winter it is nice to have a walk around the area and warm yourself in Na Cyplu restaurant.
I recommend also seeing the wilder part of the harbour, which is more to the south. There is the unique bar Miejsce hidden behind the trees. Check Magda’s article about Miejsce.
