Vistulan Boulevards - historical hydraulic boulevards used for flood management in Kraków; in Poland. The boulevards are structured from retaining walls (an upper, high and lower which is used to channelise the river channel), allowing the boulevards to perform a river port function. The nineteenth and twentieth-century boulevards are used for flood management, this included the floods of 1970, 1997, and 2010.

The boulevards around the river channel of the Vistula and the Rudawa are part of an area of parkland, being a popular recreational area for Cracovians and tourists alike. The boulevards are pedestrianised, with bicycle routes.
