  • Island of Mlyńska a nice corner of Bydgoszcz for families couples and children. Interesting place to relax and walk around. An interesting area because of the architecture of the premises where you can sit and have a cup of coffee, many museums that you can visit. The proximity of the old market attracts people. The downside of this place are expensive tickets to the Museum, and a small playground for families with small children in the warmer months there is this piston.

  • Love this place. Its so beautiful here and really great for families. Had a sand pit, grassy area and a play ground plus public toilets. The toilets are situated behind the stadium steps which you have to pay the clerk to enter though, however they are kept clean.
