We enjoyed going around, there is so much to see, and buy if you like Amber. There are many interesting Museums worth seeing, all they need is more English information

Beautiful town and easy walkable city. Historical, unique and developed along the river / canal / harbor. A perfect base to explore the northern part of Poland.

great city, friendly people loads to see.everywhere reasonably priced. Make sure if you visit to see the crane, and the sodek is worth a visit too. A boat down the Motlawa, to Westernplatte , Where WWII broke out is also well worth a visit.

I never expected to be so impressed with Gdansk's Old Town. The buildings are beautiful in their own right and when you consider that the Poles reconstructed them brick by brick after the cruel devastation of WWII, it becomes even more amazing. Just wandering around leaves you awestruck. The only comparable Old Town that I've seen is Prague. Poland is... More
