Warsaw - River Vistula

Warsaw - River Vistula
April 2012


My apologies for my lack of posts recently, an absence due to business commitments away from the water.


Warsaw from the east bank of the Vistula


My latest travels took me to Warsaw in Poland and for my first evening I found myself down on the riverbank of the Vistula which runs beside the city and used to carry a huge volume of traffic. Not so anymore - a moving boat is a rarity but the river and its bridges remain majestic.

Here are a selection of images from the riverside.

From Walsall to Warsaw... I used to get them mixed up when I was little.
