Undoubtedly, the strongest points of the city are countless sports events such as Triathlon Bydgoszcz, Woda Bydgoska (Swimming Competition), Wielka Wioślarska (Great Rowing Regatta), or a combination of water and music festivals, i.e. Rzeka Muzyki (the River of Music), or Bydgoszcz Water Festival "Ster na Bydgoszcz", just to name the few. Once more it's the water that brings them all to life. Should you not fancy the band play, why not head for a canoe or a water-bike and enjoy the river to the rhythm of your own taste.

When tired of fitness and sports, you can venture some sightseeing and stroll along the city to see both the antique (Polish Post Office building, Fara or Klaryski Churches) and the modern (Glass Granary Building, the Opera House or the Marina). Those tired of the water, yet inquisitive and looking for more detailed knowledge can head for one of the many museums, offering a wide variety of exhibitions, from the history of the city (the Old Granary), to the one and only Exploseum, Soap and Dirt History Museum or one of the Art Galleries dotted around the Old Town.

Surely music and film festivals also tempt and appeal to all culture-vultures, to name just the few: Bydgoszcz Opera Fesitval, Premiere Festival, Bydgoszcz Music Festival, Drums Fusion, Chamber Music Festival, Musica Antiqua Europae Orientalis, Animocje International Animated Film Festival.

Access to Bydgoszcz has been facilitated thanks to a convenient railway and air connections, and a rich hotel and restaurant offer will satisfy even the most sophisticated tastes.
