Strolling around the old town is nice, most of the good restaurants are around the main square. Small shops and restaurants in the streets around.

When in Bydgoszcz do start your trip at the Market Square and stroll down to the river Brda via Mill Island. See the opera house, and go down along the river. Along the route you will find many nice places to eat.

Especially in winter and except for the special occasions like the National Day, the old town is not so 'alive' as you may expect. What makes it live is the variety of restaurants and pubs you can't miss in Bydgoszcz.

Not the largest or most dramatic square in Europe but also very cosy. Always lots of people milling about and lots of places to eat close to here. Has a nice vibe with a dramatically ugly old school central european sculpture.
