Beautiful buildings.

You get a real feel of history here. The riverside is lovely to walk along and has lots of good coffee stops and restaurants.

We visited the downtown area on a recent Baltic cruise which really whetted our appetite for a return visit. The old town is filled with beautifully restored houses, churches, shops and cafes and you could easily spend a few days here. We grabbed lunch and a few local beers in one of the cafes-many offer English menus, and finding someone... More

Plenty of entertainment, shops and restaurants to choose between while visiting this lovely place. Make sure you look up to see all the amazing details of the architectural treasures in all the hanseatic buildings in this part of Gdansk - it is amazing!

Have a burger and a beer in the sun and enjoy the nice surroundings. Then take a stroll down to the water for a nice evening activity.

Beautiful, cobbled streets, lovely decorated, interesting buildings, lots of museums and churches. Great Amber shopping. Small, interesting shops in cellars and up steps of old town houses. Also a surfeit of great bars and restaurants.

The Old Town in Gdansk is really fabulous and full of curiosities. I really like walking in the Ul. Mariacka where you can see old trading houses (each facade is different) stemming back from the time where the amber business brought a lot of wealth in Gdansk.
