‘The Vistula of Warsaw’ – a nature film


“Warsaw’s Vistula” film is 30 minutes long and presents the wealth of natural Vistula river areas within the Warsaw agglomeration. On about a 50 kilometre diverse part of the Central Vistula Valley one can come across close to 200 species of birds. The narrator, Dr. Andrej G. Kruszewicz in an amicable way talks about the world of animals that occupy various habitats – open coastal areas, riverine riparian forests, sandy islands being created in the riverbed and heavily modified areas in the city centre. The film demonstrates that the Vistula can constantly delight with its energy and landscapes full of natural charm, even within the Warsaw boundaries.

The project ‘Protecting the habitats of priority bird species of the Vistula Valley under conditions of intensive pressure of the Warsaw agglomeration’ (wislawarszawska.pl) has received a grant from the Financial Instrument for the Environment (LIFE+) and from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management.
