The event will take place on Saturday, 19th of May 2012, as part of Vistula Day celebrations, near the beach by Lazienkowski Bridge (Saska Kepa). The Hamburka rowboat show will start at 10am and continue throughout the day.

By promoting rowing and healthy lifestyle we want to bring Vistula river and Warsaw residents closer together. Hamburka is a rowing boat great for leisure activities. It gives the sporty ‘oomph’ by having the moving rower’s seat, but is more stable on water than typical rowing shell. Hamburka boats have long history and have been used on Vistula waters in Warsaw since early 1920s and 30s.
