Water Body Nature / Park
The Vistula is the longest and largest river in Poland, at 1047km in length. The drainage basin area of the Vistula is 194,424km2, of which 168,699km2 lies within Poland (splitting the country in half). The remainder is in Belarus, Ukraine and Slovakia.The Vistula rises at Barania Góra in the south of Poland, 1220m above sea level in the Silesian Beskids (western part of Carpathian Mountains), where it begins with the White Little Vistula (Biała Wisełka) and the Black Little Vistula (Czarna Wisełka). It then continues to flow over the vast Polish plains, passing several large Polish cities along its way, including Kraków, Sandomierz, Warsaw, Płock, Włocławek, Toruń, Bydgoszcz, Świecie, Grudziądz, Tczew and Gdańsk. It empties into the Vistula Lagoon (Zalew Wiślany) or directly into the Gdańsk Bay of the Baltic Sea with a delta and several branches (Leniwka, Przekop, Śmiała Wisła, Martwa Wisła, Nogat and Szkarpawa).
The Vistula is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Stegna Edition.
