I have traveled to many countries in Europe. Gdansk was a very pretty place. Especially the old town area. There were many out door performers and the whole area was alive with people. I enjoyed it very much.

The Old Town is exquisite with numerous streets and squares strewn with beautifully restored architectural gems.Numerous stalls, markets, and cafes/restaurants line the streets lending it a vibrant ambiance. The picturesque promenade along the canal is quite pleasant. With further restorations it can further enhance its already solid reputation as one of Poland's and the Baltic area's prime destinations.

Like all old towns I didn't like the cobble stones, but that's because I am disabled, everything else I loved, well worth a visit
