Bydgoszcz, Poland in A Day- Museum of Soap | Mills Island

In Europe by FIN

Time to take a quick breather in Bydgoszcz, Poland! Our upcoming travel schedule put us in Dubai, Istanbul, and the Philippines all within two weeks. We decided it was time to pump the brakes, visit family in Poland, and rest up. After a late night arrival in Warsaw we hopped aboard a $5 bus to Bydgoszcz.

What to do in Bydgoszcz, Poland

The top rated Tripadvisor attraction in Bydgoszcz is the Museum of Soap and History of Dirt. The Museum of Soap turns out to be more fun than you might expect.   Our group has fun beating each other with cleaning sticks, making custom soap, and learning about how humans slowly became less gross thanks to the magic of soap.

The other places to visit are a bit less interactive but still well worth checking out. Visitors can take a walk around Mill’s Island which is in the middle of the river.  The Tightrope Walker sculpture in town is a great photo opportunity. Old Market Square in the middle of town is a great place to check out some historical buildings and chase pigeons.
