Bydgoszcz Food & Street Art

Bydgoszcz was another surprise street art find when travelling with a camera.

I always like to ask recomendations from the locals where they would eat, rather than going to the usual tourist traps.  Chatting to the very helpful lady in the Tourist Info Centre, located in the main square, I also came away with a bonus – the ‘Alternative Route’ leaflet on the city.  So off I shot, to check out the street art.  You can download or view the leaflet by clicking here.

What I love about cities and towns with street art, is that it takes you to areas that you wouldn’t usually see.  And thats what I enjoy most when travelling, also seeing the non tourist bits – you can find some really interesting stuff.

And back to restaurants, Karczma Młyńska on Mill Island and Katarynka, in the main Old Market Square, are not to be missed.  Both served up amazing local fare, excellent service and great prices.  Make sure you book on weekends, they get very busy – you don’t want to miss out on these two.

My foodie recommendations – at Karczma Młyńska, try the delicious goose or pork knuckle. Portions are huge – you have been warned! And at Katarynka, the pierogi dumplings are scrumptious.

The other food that I must recommend while in Poland is their Polish Sour Rye Soup.  I must admit, it doesn’t have the most appealing title, however, it is so tasty.  It even comes served in its own loaf, which you can see the remainder of here!

  1. Hi,
    I’ve spent a very enjoyable hour or so catching up with your travels. You are a professional photographer…..just need the commissions! I particularly liked the video clips, Motor Valley and you with Guy Gorilla! Let’s hope you have forgotten about Lambrusco by now. Great to see you enjoying life. Hope to see you soon.
