Historic Hanseatic City
On poland's picturesque Baltic coast, a visit to the historic port city of Gdansk is well worth it. Stroll in the Stare Miasto, the Old Town, past the red brick churches, elegant buildings, quaint cafés and fascinating museums. After the ravages of The Second World War, the city has been rebuilt and restored to its former glory. Admire the cultural view of the Motława River, where the ships are moored, surrounded by mansions on the quayside and the rebuilt Grain Island. Here you will find one of the icons of Gdansk,the Zuraw, the largest medieval port crane in Europe. Sip a cold beer in a beer garden on the wharf and enjoy a variety of leisurely boat trips. In a number of historical places you will get to know the rich history of the maritime world.
City of Freedom and Solidarity
Who doesn't remember the legendary scenes from August 1980. Led by Lech Walesa, the famous strike at the time led to the legalisation of the Solidarity trade union and the first steps towards the fall of communist rule. Step back in time and relive this historic period at the Lenin shipyard of Gdansk.
