The project aims to preserve the character of the Czerniakowski Harbor and Peninsula, an intensely green place with attractive nature. Sport features on the Peninsula do not destroy the existing greenery, the services have been placed in floating pavilions, moored in the summer to the floating promenade on the Vistula River, and in the winter, gathered in the port area.

The functions that require a larger volume are concentrated on the side of Czerniakowska Street, thus creating an acoustic barrier for green areas. Empty spaces between the buildings encourage to enter the park zone of the Peninsula.

The Vistula River Museum at the very end of the Peninsula is to be a recognizable sign in the area, with its program aimed at enriching the cultural and entertainment offer of this spot.

The project involves the follow-up of educational and cultural activities organized by the Ja Wisła foundation (“I, the Vistula foundation”), such as cinema under the bridge, the adaptation of the former shipyard slipway for concerts, the creation of a pavilion café and forest amphitheatre.

The project envisages the relationship with neighboring areas, especially the Stanisławowska Axis by communicating two sides of the Street via an underpass, and the Harbor area with the Legia Stadium, as well as the modernization of the underpass on the Sappers’ Axis.
