Vistula Lagoon

The 115 km long lower section of the Vistula, from the confluence with the Brda to the Nogat, is a class II navigable waterway, with guaranteed minimum depth of 1.4 m. Along this section, there are no water impounding installations. From here up to its mouth (941.3 km), the Vistula is a waterway of class III and offers a depth of 1.6 m.

Bridges

Szkarpawa River Drewnica (at km 2.85). Road drawbridge. The clearance of the closed bridge is approximately 2.9 m and depends on the actual water level. This modern bridge was built a few years ago where a pontoon crossing used to be located.
