A very unique boat ride along an engineering marvel in northern Poland passing through beautiful wetlands. Westarted at the marina in Buczyniec, The ship begins its cruise on the first of five consecutive inclined planes. Then, with the help of special hydrotechnical devices, it “descends” five times together with its passengers, thus overcoming the nearly 100-meter difference in height over a distance of about 10 km.
