Mill Island is an historic area located in Bydgoszcz Old Town, covering approximately 6.5 ha: it is today a place with cultural and recreational facilities, surrounded by Brda river and its branch. The island received the 2012 Certificate of Best Tourist Attraction by Polish Tourist Organisation.LocationThe island is situated between Brda river and its leat branch, west of the Old Market, in Bydgoszcz Old Town. Only one road runs through the island, Mennica street, whose name derives from "mennica", "mint" in polish: a royal mint demolished in the 19th century operated there from 1594 to 1688. Mennica street connects the Old Market to the mills on the island, and extends to the 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"). Its location in the Old Town district is a symbol of the close symbiosis between Bydgoszcz city and the river-and-canals network, the Bydgoszcz Floodway (("Opera Nova").Island intersected two canals: The "Międzywodzie (between waters) kanal", a historic watercourse, renovated in 2007; The "Grain channel", west of Rother's Mills, pierced in the 18th century.The leat river flows around the island and joins Brda river through two weirs, "Jaz Farny" and "Jaz Ulgowy", and a fish ladder.

  • Beautifully already developed (and still a lot of work to do, so it will be great), quiet, Moody to the old town of cleanness, a variety of birds. Recommend Marina Bydgoszcz-no stars, but it's strong.

  • Long ago it was in Bydgoszcz as attractive destination and is in the Centre, as the ISLAND already MLYNSKA. Everyone will find something for yourself; singles, couples, families. Beautiful views of Venice, Bydgoszcz, interesting bridges/per one New Opera/, pubs, cafes and restaurants. One word-all for spirit and body. Camera or camera-mandatory.

  • Great place for everyone. In the evenings, romantic place for couples to stroll Trivia architectural, modern installations-sculptures, museums-for visitors. Well equipped, large playground for parents with children. A lot of space, wider and narrower paths, hidden more or less in the greenery gives visitors privacy. Recommend.

  • I visited Karczma Młyńska during my last stay in Bydgoszcz, and I was completely impressed with the quality of food and authentic decor. The decor was so interesting that I requested a tour of two interior floors. I was so impressed during my first visit, that I returned to this restaurant one more time in August. Both times I was able to enjoy a real Polish dish on their summer deck, which faces the water -- river Brda. The atmosphere, the docor, and most importantly the food -- were all 5 STAR. I will return and bring along my wife to partake of this delicious, Polish cousine.
  • Great food, friendly staff, very interesting interior! Highly recommended.
  • Great Polish food in a charming environment. Try the golonka!
  • Great staff work! There were several large groups around me (single diner) and I never felt forgotten! Recommendations by staff (ribs in honey) were spot on with what I was asking for and the margarita was superb!
  • Great food, reasonable prices, friendly staff!
