Mennica street connects the Old Market to the mills on the island, and extends to Focha street, running along the causeway connecting Mill Island with water locks.CharacteristicsMill Island is one of the most beautiful scenic spots in Bydgoszcz, thanks to its picturesque features: long waterfronts, locks and dams, canal waterfall, greenery and buildings frontages on waterfront (nicknamed "Venice of Bydgoszcz").

  • Revitalization of the island Mill brought really great effects. This place is ideal to spend some time with family and friends in the sunny afternoon. Is weed, Cascade, a river, a playground, the artificial Beach, park, and a couple of museums around, so is what to do:)
