Organised as usual by the City and Tourism Promotion Office, this year’s River Oder Day will be held on Xavery Dunikowski Boulevard on 18th May.

Saturday in May is an excellent opportunity to spend time with your family by the Oder. We have made an effort to turn Xawery Dunikowski Boulevard into a place full of fun, games, cruises, regatta or artistic performances. Everybody will find something for themselves. Come along and celebrate River Oder Day 2019 with us!

The programme includes:

  • cruises
  • sailing workshops
  • regatta for families
  • games for children
  • artistic performances
  • many other attractions.

Clubs, organisations and institutions connected with the Oder will present their offer on stands.

Having a good time together will be an opportunity to learn more about the biggest Wroclaw river. The potential of the Oder is huge – the redeveloped quays offer the possibility of practising various sports, and an increasing number of harbours, beaches, restaurants and watercraft rental points is established in the river area.

This year, the Oder Centre will be opened as a meeting place for all fans of the Oder in the water house of the On Water Foundation.

Between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., there will be many attractions in store for everyone on Xawery Dunikowski Boulevard.
