Re: Wisla/Vistula- Poland

Cool thank you, this is going to be a bit of a mission, but hopefully with a few sites like this I can work it out!

Realistically I may just have to make a few assumptions at some point and chance it, but bridges and or depth (or lack of) is going to be a bit scary!

Re: Wisla/Vistula- Poland

Good site under this link.

Here is more info (in Polish) but still could be helpful: Kilometra
According to the table there, the lowest bridge is 6.5 (6,5) meter.

The guaranteed depth is well marked on the chart barnakiel has provided.

That site (may) be great! It will take a bit of time and some help from the missus, but hopefully I can translate it!

Re: Wisla/Vistula- Poland

If sailing, get a center-boarder with a foldable mast. Any boat will do as you do not need to carry provisions/water. Many public docks are free, you can anchor anywhere unless there is a clear no-anchor zone sign.

June tends to be fine but July is rainy period most of the years. Late August/early September can be fantastic. Sleeping bags definitely of the three-season type.

Unprocessed food available throughout and recommended. You may be able to buy raw milk (illegal in most EU states). Smoked wurst of many types, fermented foods (sauerkraut, gurken, mushrooms, etc.) and delicious pastry/bakery/sweets. Their bread is way above anything you are likely to get in the Western world, unless you are Jewish or German. Their processed food crap as everywhere. Great beers, no wine. Mosquitoes oh mosquitoes and ... most beautiful girls in the world.

Eh, I too were young, once.

Re: Wisla/Vistula- Poland

I'm not young...just inexperienced :-)

Polish food is awesome!

The plan is still in its early stages, I thought sailing would just be too tricky to be honest, so some kind of river cruiser is most likely. Are you aware of any speed limits at all?
