  • One day in Bydgoszcz

    Bydgoszcz, sightseeing, old town

    Are you in Bydgoszcz just for 1 day? Do you want to make the most of your limited time in our city, but don't know where to start? We have prepared a one-day sightseeing program for our city for you.

    >> Tip << When planning a trip to Bydgoszcz, it is worth getting the Bydgoszcz Tourist Card, with which visiting our city becomes more profitable, due to free attractions and many discounts, not only in cultural facilities, but also in restaurants.
    >> Tip << Some places (District Museum, Rother Mills) are opening Friday-Sunday 12:00 (midday). You can choose Museum of Soap or water tram cruise as early attractions, as they are operating from 9-10 AM every morning.

    10 AM Arrival to Bydgoszcz

    There are numerous parking spaces and multi-storey car parkings in the city center (located at Pod Blankami Street, Jagiellońska 23 Street, or soon at Grudziądzka 15 Street), where we can leave the car and walk to the first point of the program.

    10 AM – 12 PM Visiting the Old Town

    bydgoszcz dluga22 kamienice

    We start our tour with a visit to the Bydgoszcz Information Centre (Batorego 2 Street). We learn more about the city there, we get a map and information folders. Equipped with materials, we begin our tour. We are located in the Old Market Square is the central square of the city, marked out in 1346 by King Casimir III the Great, a place through which the 18th meridian runs. The impressive white edifice visible from the Old Market Square is the town hall, and right next to it is the oldest surviving building in Bydgoszcz - the cathedral. The late-gothic temple hides in its interior extremely valuable monuments that are worth seeing.

    >> Mill Island <<

    From the walls of the cathedral, we go to the Mill Island - a green oasis located in the very center of the city. On the island there are 4 branches of the District Museum: Archaeological Collections, Leon Wyczółkowski's "house", Modern Art Gallery and the European Money Center, and the dominant object is the Rother’s Mills. The Mills used to have an industrial function, today they are the seat of cultural institutions. In addition to the exhibition on history of the city (“Knots”) and wide cultural offer, the Mills invite you to admire the panorama of the Old Town from its terraces.

    12 PM Make a soap and listen to stories about hygiene at the Museum of Soap and the History of Dirt

    The Soap Museum is a unique place on the map of Bydgoszcz, where you can learn more about the history of cleanliness, dirt, and soap making. Additionally, during the tour, we take part in soap workshops, thanks to which we leave the museum with our own hand-made soap. Admission to the Museum with the Bydgoszcz Tourist Card is free of charge, you only need to book a visit in advance.

    >> Make a soap at the Museum of Soap <<

    1 PM See Master Twardowski, take a selfie on the Old Town Bridge and go on a cruise by water tram

    We continue our walk around the Old Town. Now we go towards Mostowa Street to the Staromiejski Bridge (Old Town Bridge), which separates the Bydgoszcz Old Town from the city center. When it’s 1:13 pm, stop for a moment at the Old Market Square to see a moving sculpture of Mr. Twardowski emerging from the window of the tenement house at number 15. Legends say that the wizard visited our city in 1560 and "performed various miracles"

    >> Water Tram cruise <<

    Then we go to the Staromiejski Bridge (Old Town Bridge) to capture one of the most famous views in Bydgoszcz – Man Passing the River and the Granaries on the Brda River. It is a must-see on the city map. After the photo has been taken, we go to the Water Tram stop below, which is located at the Rybi Rynek (Fish Market Square). A water tram cruise is one of the favorite and most popular attractions in Bydgoszcz. The tram runs in the tourist season (May-September) on two routes (Staromiejska/Old Town line and Słoneczna/Sunny line). A cruise on a water tram is an amazing opportunity to see the city from the perspective of the Brda River.

    At the Old Market Square, Jatki Street, Długa Street or in Bydgoszcz's Venice, there are many gastronomic facilities where you can eat well. And if we would like to get to know the flavours of Bydgoszcz, it is worth going to restaurants included in the Bydgoszcz culinary trail.

    We tried Bydgoszcz specialties, bought souvenirs at the Bydgoszcz Information Center ( Batorego 2 Street), so we can go to the next sightseeing point, which is a walk around Bydgoszcz Downtown. A walk around this part of the city is an opportunity to discover interesting architecture from first decades of 20th century (Gdańska Street, Cieszkowskiego Street), rest among the greenery of city parks (including Casimir the Great park with the spectacular Deluge fountain) and listen to the melody flowing from the "Music District" (monuments to composers, the building of the Pomeranian Philharmonic, a sculpture of an archer from 1910).

    ostromecko, pałac, okolice bydgoszczy

    About 17 km from the city centre of Bydgoszcz, towards Dąbrowa Chełmińska, is the Ostromecko Palace and Park (9 Bydgoska Street).

    The New Palace was erected in the classicist style in 1832-1849 (to the design of Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s studio), commissioned by the then owner of Ostromecko, Jakub Martin Schoenborn. The main building is joined from the south by a neo-baroque annex, featuring the Hunting Palace (1891-1892), and from the north – by the Ballroom added in 1905. These days, the building houses a restaurant with a hotel. In the west, the Palace is adjoined by vast terraces (ca. 1912), heading straight to a 19th-century garden, designed in the English style by garden architect Peter Joseph Lenné. Now we head towards the Old Palace, which is located far in the garden. The present structure dates from the mid-18th century, when the previous nobleman’s manor house was expanded by the Mostowski family. The palace, built in the Warsaw rococo style, features a collection of 18th- and 19th-century pianos collected by a distinguished citizen of Bydgoszcz, Andrzej Szwalbe, whose memorial chamber is in the building. The windows of the palace and the terrace outside the building offer a picturesque view of the Italian garden stretching below, as well as the Vistula and its old riverbed.

  • Treasure in the Cathedral

    Bydgoszcz is a city full of suprises. In the middle of maintenance work in Bydgoszcz Cathedral archeologists discovered something truly stunning.

    They found a real treasure, golden coins, jewellery and precious stones. The oldest coin is dated back to 16th century and the youngest was minted in 17th century. No body knows how the treasure ended up in the Cathedral nor who could hide it there. This unknown data flavors the story with a bit of mistery. Recent discoveries of seven grave crypts only whet the appetite for more revelations.
