The fans of canoeing and rafting will be happy to use Polish clean rivers of the whitewater type (e.g. Dunajec) and the calm ones like The River Krutynia.

Interesting sport events take place nearly every day in Poland. The most numerous are of course at weekends. With the exception of the league football matches all the events are recommendable.

Avoid league football matches and football pitch surroundings just after the matches because you may be trapped in fights between football clubs fans, which usually need police intervention. If you insist on watching a match, go there with your Polish friends who are well aware of the realities. When leaving there - be sure your insurance card is with you ;)
