About Gdansk

The City

Gdańsk, which is located on the Baltic sea, is the principle seaport of Poland. Many people have heard of the city because it was the birthplace of the Solidarity movement, which helped to end Communist rule in Eastern Europe.

Many people believe the city was founded in 997, though much of it had to be rebuilt after World War II as the war laid waste to over 90% of the downtown districts. Today, after 30 years of rebuilding from the war, Gdańsk is a city where the past, present, and future have melded together to form a warm, harmonious connection with locals and visitors alike.

You Can Spend Days in Old Town

Old Town Gdańsk is something that offers ambience, adventure, and opportunity. With the man cafes tucked into the side streets, you can experience culinary delights that are local, fresh, and inspiring. Explore St. Mary’s Church and then take some time to rest and feed the pigeons. Have some candy made for you to order as you watch. Grab a coffee or a beer based on your preferences and take an afternoon stroll along the river. Have your picture taken by the golden gate. It may have been rebuilt after World War II, but it still gives you the authentic experience you’ve come to expect from visiting an Old Town.

See Where World War II Began

Some have called the generation that fought in World War II the “Greatest Generation” because of the sacrifices that they were willing to make. A visit to Westerplatte will let you see where that terrible war began as the German army attacked Poland here. This monument was built in memory of the 209 defenders who held off over 3,500 German troops for a week until finally caving in. There is a barracks there that will let you see what life was like in those days, as well as several information stands in Polish and English that will give you a new perspective about what happened. This is definitely a touching experience you won’t want to miss.

See Where Communism Ended

Not only was Gdańsk influential in the beginning of World War II, but it was also influential in the fall of Communism. The Solidarity museum is a small enough museum that you can fit it into a day of sightseeing, but interesting enough that it will make your day. Best described as being depressing, but in a good way, you can see what the struggle was to cast off the walls of Communism from life in general. It really is a great place to understand the value of freedom and treasure what we all have.

Are You Ready to Visit Gdańsk?

Gdańsk is a city that speaks of history, some proud and forthright, while others dark and cruel. With modern amenities, you can relax the way you love to relax while still being able to experience history and local culture. Gdańsk has much to offer anyone and is a photographer’s delight, even if much of the city has been rebuilt within the last 60 years.

Why should people go to Gdańsk? Because the pride of the city will leave an indelible mark on your soul.
