Amazing architecture at the river bank and hundreds of cozy little restaurants and cafes for all the taste. Hotels built in to old buildings create unforgettable staying experience plus polish hospitality- winning combination.

Not much to see. A church lacking individual characteristics. A wide street, uninspiring restaurants. Personnel who dislike you if you do not speak Polish (which I don't). A friend who speaks Polish was treated much nicer. Will not return.

The old town of Gdansk is a great place to visit. A picturesque place with lots of cafe bars, restaurants, museums and interesting sights. A pleasant surprise. Will return to see what it's like in the summer.

Old tenement houses, narrow streets, cobblestones below your shoes - these and many more makes this place special and unique. Must come and see on your own.

While nearly completely destroyed in WWII, the historic German center has been nicely and nearly accurate rebuilt. Definitely worth seeing.

Well worth touring with some lovely architecture and a host of cafes, bars, and shops.The old town is historic and interesting and popular without being completely swamped with tourists. This means you can usually get a seat or admission for anything you want to do.
