"El Barquero / The Boatman" Szczawnica Favorite Tip by elpariente

Szczawnica General: 5 reviews and 10 photos

Favorite thing: The Boatmen's Association organize the trips.
All boatmen are dressed in their local costumes , with hat, vest and the pole that they use to navigate
The boat is handled by two boatmen, one gets ahead and although at times he helps to navigate, its main mission is to make the trip pleasant, explain to you where you go, tell stories ... The boatman of our trip spoke perfect "Polish" but nonetheless made us ​​the trip very enjoyable
The boatman that was behind said nothing during all the time but he was the real "hard worker"

La asociación de Barqueros es la que organiza los viajes .
Todos los barqueros van vestidos con su traje regional gorro , chaleco y con la pértiga que utilizan para navegar
La barca la manejan dos barqueros , uno se pone adelante y aunque en algunos momentos ayuda a navegar , su principal misión es hacerte el viaje agradable , explicarte por donde vas , contar anecdotas ... El barquero de nuestro viaje hablaba en perfecto "Polaco" pero así y todo nos hizo el viaje muy agradable
El que iba detrás no abrió la boca y era el verdadero "currante"

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
