Funny, when your expectations are low, you always get nice surprises. So it was with Gdansk (but then, we did only see the Old Town). The soviets bombed and completely trashed this pretty Dutch-style sector in WW2 (1945) for reasons no-one understands much. But the hard-working Poles have been busy since then, and they have spent time and money re-building... More

I saw pictures of the old city of Gdansk and I wanted to see it myself, so on our trip to Poland we took the Polish train from Warsaw to Gdansk. Situated on the coast of the Baltic Sea, which lies in the Pomerania region, together with Sopot and Gdynia they they form a Tricity. Gdansk has rich history and... More

We visited the Stutthof death camp first, 25 miles east of Gdansk, It was a sad morning for me, let me tell you. Fortunately, we did a walking tour of the old town of Gdansk that afternoon. Absolutely beautiful ancient port city. All sorts of interesting attractions, like the Great Crane, which was the largest in the world in 1944.... More

We walked through ourselves instead of keeping with the tour, we had a wheel chair and it was easier that way.It was good to see, pretty old, like a big flea market.

Expecting to find only a grimmy ship building town, how nice it was to see Old Town Gdansk. This part of town is a bit like Holland, with a comfortable ambiance and a lot of sight seeing by foot. There are also some wonderful old churches and cathedrals to see. Amber is everywhere, but not nesessarily available at the best... More

The soviet red army, in 1945, destroyed for no strategic reason, the old town of Gdansk. To preserve the past, Poles reconstructed the Old section of Gdansk as it was before. It amaze me how well it was done. I loved walking through there, looking into shops full of the local specialty; the amber (petrified pine resin) jewelery. The 400... More
