“Gdansk city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We visited Gdank in Jan 2013.

What a lovely city. We took the bus from the airport for just over £1 (5 zloty). We just followed most others. There is a machine outside the airport that takes credit card.

We stayed at Grand Hotel Cru; we can't fault it. Beautiful, friendly staff, and amazing bathrooms. 10-15 mins walk into town.

We took the skm train to Gdynia. It was just over £1 each way. We thought it would be very pretty here, but sadly it was disappointing, ghost town and not much open. It is probably different in summer.

Gdansk has free Wifi around the city. You see signs on lamp posts and no security code. Connection was excellent. Nearly every place we went also offered Wifi for free.

The Amsterdam Bar was very welcoming and lovely beer. Just around the corner (same owner) was a little crepe shop. Absolutely amazing; super quality and so big I could only manage 2/3rds of it. Pancake with banana, chocolate, nuts and drizzled with toffee + cup if coffee just 10 zloty.

The best find was Mont Balzac bar. In the centre with superb live music. The presentation and taste was excellent; the price very good. A main for two, bottle if wine, chips, garlic bread, dessert to share and couple of cocktails, just 219 zloty. Staff great, service fantastic, and setting was even better. You need to send an email and book in advance before you come here (we did). This bar is attached to Artus hotel. We would stay here if we visited against. Right in the centre, clean, classy and modern, didn't seem like just 3 star.

People all friendly here. A lively experience.

“It would help if All Of The Narratives were translated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2011

the best part of this otherwise unimaginative museum is on the top floor.It is devoted to the history of Free Danzig.It is in a much more modern style and layout than the rest of the museum.Unfortunately some of the displays dont have an English translation which is rather frustrating.It is difficult to understand why the museum stops at this period in history.Why no mention of WW2 or the Communist era?Unfortunately many of the local museums are rooted in the past and have not brought themselves up todate.One further point.Why is it that some museums are free on Tuesday but not others.All rather strange.I would allow no more than one hour to get round this museum.

“Historical Museum of Gdansk (pomerian)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2010

It is located on Dluga street, there is admission fee - 2 euro (discount for students), on Tuesdays it's free of charge. Really amazing thing is ornate Baroque doorway built in 1766. Inside there is Red Room from end of the 16th century, it was place of town council's meetings. You also can see few paintings, but the best is The Glorification of the Unity of Gdansk with Poland, painted by Flemish artist - Isaac van den Block. From 2nd floor you can enter the tower (admission fee) for great view to the centre of city
