City of music and festivals

The historical monuments are grouped along the Brda River and in the area of the Old Town. They include a late- Gothic parish church with the miraculous painting of Our Lady with a rose, old half-timber granaries (18th/19th cc.) and a small Gothic-Renaissance Church of the Poor Clares.

The Bydgoszcz canal, which has a number of old hydraulic installations, links the Brda with the Notec River.

Attempts have been made to enter this 18th century system of engineering facilities on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

Bydgoszcz’s opera and music festivals are highly valued by music lovers.
