Located in Poland’s northern Pomorskie region, the Baltic coastal city of Gdansk delights with its picturesque Old Town and charming backstreets, wonderful local cuisine and maritime history. It’s the perfect European city for exploring on foot and taking in the sights.


What you’ll love most about Gdansk

  • Marvel in the city’s Old Town with a walking tour and see the waterfront and the sympathetically restored buildings. Better still, join a foodie tour and experience tasty pastries, dumplings and Polish vodka
  • Take a Motlawa River boat cruise which is a highly recommended experience for many past visitors
  • Climb the 400 or so steps of St Mary’s church for a breathtaking view of the city. Alternatively, ride the AmberSky wheel for delightful views – especially as the sun sets
  • The beaches of Jelitkowo, Stogi and Brzezno are worthy of your time for relaxing. The neighbouring beach resort town of Sopot is just 7 miles from the centre of Gdansk and offers up a long, wide beach popular with locals
