The people in Gdańsk understand what their city has to offer: a beautiful city centre, an outstretched beach and a natural, green hinterland. In fact, “It happened in Gdańsk” has been the local tourist board's slogan for years. All you need to do is change ‘happened’ to ‘happens’.

Places to visit in Gdańsk

On the Baltic Sea lies Gdańsk, capital of Poland's Pomerania province. It is a city with a history that goes back more than 1,000 years and where trade has been the common thread. Gdańsk (once known as Danzig) is located at a crossroad, both over land and sea. As a Hanseatic city, Gdańsk traded with other cities along the Baltic Sea for centuries. This has left a wonderful legacy, which you can see in the architectural beauty of buildings such as the Golden Gate, the Green Gate and the Artushof, a meeting place for merchants.

Discover Gdańsk

You can reach the seaside resort of Sopot very easily from Gdańsk. The 6-kilometre beach offers plenty of choice in terms of food and drink. The various hiking trails and cycling routes nearby will take you through the beautiful natural landscapes. Shopaholics won't be disappointed. There aren't many shops in the city centre, but the large shopping centres certainly make up for that. You'll find an incredible range of products in Manhattan, from small household items to the latest trends in fashion. If you don't find what you're looking for there, head over to Galaria Baltyck, with more than 200 shops under one roof. It has Polish shops as well as all the major European fashion chains. Walking, shopping or strolling along the beach: Gdańsk has it all.
