In June, the "Warsaw Beach Staff" came back to the beaches of the capital city. City Hall has launched six beach points that will operate until the end of September. The Beach Staff will provide you with information about the nature by the Vistula River, as well as you will be able to rent deckchairs and sports equipment free of charge.
Information and recreation points operate on four capital beaches – Saska, Poniatówka, Rusałka (near the zoo), Żoliborz – as well as in the Kamień Educational Pavilion and for the first time at the General George Smith Patton Boulevard (by the first pavilion from the side of the Świętokrzyski Bridge).
City beach points were created so that residents could attractively and actively spend time by the Vistula River, as well as learn about its natural values. Warsaw's beaches are located in the Natura 2000 area which is under nature conservation.
