So many wonderful buildings to see with an abundance of grand religious buildings rising above the pretty terrace buildings reminiscent of ones in Amsterdam. If you see nothing else in Gdansk, definitely go see the Old Town.

Gdansk is stunning! A port city with rich history and an amazing Old Town. It is much bigger than Krakow and I can easily say that more beautiful too! Amazing architecture, lovely canals... It is definitely worth visiting!

The city centre of Gdansk is a very beautiful collection of nice houses, most of them in similar style. The cityhall tower can be visited and the long stairs bring you to a spectacular view of the centre and it's surroundings.

I didn't thought I would find such a beautiful spirit in the old town in Gdansk. Those narrow streets with all colorful littles houses, beautiful churches and interesting places to chill. One of the coziest old towns I have been to. I would like to come back there in summer, as I visited in winter, but it is still cozy,... More

We spent 3 days in Gdansk walking the cobbled town. It's a bit of a maze with more fascinating buildings down little lanes & streets. Try the quaint bars & restaurants, walk along the river. We went in winter so it was quiet but very enjoyable.
