Vistula River is so much identified with Krakow as the Seine with Paris or the Thames with London. At the river there are several significant sights, the most important of which is Royal Castle and the Cathedral rising above Wawel Hill. Nearby, there is Pauline Fathers’ Monastery on Skałka. Sailing up the Vistula river you can see the Norbertine Sisters Convent in Salwator, and on the slopes of hills covered with Wolski Forest a castle in Przegorzaly. This is one of the few monuments of Krakow architecture founded during the Nazi occupation. Another sight on the route is the seventeenth - century hermitage of Camaldolese in Bielany. Due to the strict rule of the order, the monastery is open to women only for 12 days a year. Choosing the longest option of the cruise you can reach the Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec located in the eleventh century on a limestone cliff.
