The exciting history of Gdansk, an idyllic town at the Motlawa, goes back about 1000 years. Today Gdansk offers a lot of places of interest.
In World War II Gdansk was destroyed almost completely by Soviet forces, but nearly all buildings were reconstructed from historic models.
Almost all places of interest are located in the historic old town (Glowne Miasto) within a few 100 metres, so the walks are very diverting. The main streets, the Long Street, as well as Long Market, accommodate the most of the interesting buildings.
Furthermore, excursions to the surrounding area of Gdansk are worth it. Along the coast, as well as on Hel Peninsula, you find wonderful beaches. The Pomeranian Lakeland with its forests and fields is unique and fantastic, and the Castle in Malbork you shouldn’t miss at all — majestic, rough and beautiful at once.
