Why You Should Visit Gdansk in Poland

Why You Should Visit Gdansk in Poland, Gdansk, Poland (B)

Every year 20 new cities compete for the prestigious title of the hot new European destination. In 2017 one of the cities in the competition was Gdansk, and it ended up in the Top 3 Best European destinations 2017 ( right after Porto and Milan ). When you visit, you will see that this was very deserving. It’s beautiful, vibrant and full of history. Even though I found Gdansk to be more expensive than other parts of Poland, it’s still a great value compared to other European destinations.

Gdansk is a city in Poland, on the Baltic coast and it’s the capital of Pomeranian Voivodeship. It’s part of the so called Tricity ( Trojmiasto ), which is made up, like the name suggests, by 3 cities: Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. Because of how close they are, and how easy it is to travel between them by SKM trains, it’s not hard to include either Gdynia or Sopot ( or both ) in your visit to Gdansk.

Aside from the beautiful architecture, so typical for old polish cities, Gdansk is also a great destination for water enthusiasts. It’s right on the Motlawa River and very close to the Baltic Sea. There are many opportunities for water activities on the river, with kayaks, many different boats to rent and water taxis. You can also take advantage of the ferry to venture further out into the Baltic Sea. Zegluga Gdanska runs cruises to the nearby city of Sopot or the Hel peninsula. Both make a great day trip out of Gdansk. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
