Cruises on the Vistula Lagoon
The Vistula Lagoon is a bay of the Baltic Sea, stretching east of the present mouth of the Vistula, separated from the sea by the Vistula Spit – a narrow strip of land partly belonging to Poland and partly to Russia. Only the Piławska Strait, located within the borders of the Russian Kaliningrad Oblast, connects the Vistula Lagoon with the open sea. This situation will be changed by the ditch which is under construction in the Polish part of the spit.
The Vistula Lagoon has very important natural functions: it is one of the main breeding places for herring in the southern Baltic Sea, and here is also the most numerous breeding colony of cormorants in Poland. For enthusiasts of active relaxation, the reservoir offers excellent conditions for water sports, especially sailing and windsurfing. Cruises on ships, combined with visiting cities such as Frombork, Elbląg or Tolkmicko, allow you to learn about the history and culture of Warmia and Powiśle.
Water tram. We invite you to regular cruises on the route: Krynica Morska-Tolkmicko-Krynica Morska. The cruises are combined with a guided tour of Frombork, which includes two museums on the Cathedral Hill: the Nicholaus Copernicus Museum in Frombork and the Frombork Cathedral Complex Museum.
Tourists planning a full-day bike trip, from Tuesday to Friday, can take advantage of a special offer, a water trip from Krynica Morska to Tolkmicko or vice versa for PLN 25 (so the bike goes for free). This year, special online booking packages for selected cruises have been introduced for tourists following the GreenVelo bicycle route.

The 1.5-hour trip is an excellent proposition for spending time with your loved ones, getting to know the tourist attractions of Krynica Morska and visiting Frombork, the city of Copernicus, the greatest of Polish astronomers.
