Cruise was very relaxing I can tell. The whole crew, including the Captain is more than kind. I can recommend everyone visiting Warsaw to try it on their own. You won't be disappointed!

Embrace the Charm of Galar Cruise Journey

Stepping onto our 12-seater Galar wooden boat, an homage to local folk boatbuilding traditions, nestle under a cozy blanket and feel the magic of the city come alive around you. Cruising down the Vistula, the heartline of Warsaw, discover a panoramic view of the city's skyline, and architectural relics of the old town.

Sailing Through Warsaw's Heartbeat

Spot the legendary Warsaw Mermaid or 'Syrenka', armed with a sword and a shield in contrast to her peaceful counterparts worldwide, a symbol of the city's resilience. Witness the panoramic contrast of the old and new town, the monumental National Stadium, and the serene green spaces nestled along the right bank of the Vistula, one of the last wild rivers in Europe.
