Setting Motława River in Gdansk

18th August 2015

When we were in Gdansk we love walking on the bank of Motława River. Setting is well-maintained because all  is neat. There are a lot of nice restaurants and pubs but unluckily not very cheap.

Motława (GermanMottlau) is a river in Eastern Pomerania in Poland. The source is in Szpegawskie Lake, northeast fromStarogard Gdański. It goes through Rokickie Lake, and goes to Leniwka. Length 64.7 km, drawn area 1511.3 km².
The city of Gdańsk is situated at its mouth in the Leniwka. In Gdańsk, the Motława ferry crosses the river, a service that has run since 1687.
The Polish name Motława is derived from the Old Prussian language. In German the river is known as Mottlau.
A common theory for the etymology of the cities Gdańsk and Gdynia is that they are named after an older Polish andKashubian name for the river, Gdania.

 Cruise on the river was great..

The pancakes were yummy..
