Gdansk: Top things to do and see
Gdansk is located in the North of Poland and has played an important role over the centuries when it comes to being a trading port. Gdansk also has a rich history including different occupiers and being a free city. Gdansk is especially known for its Old Town as it has been rebuilt exactly as it was after WWII. What to do and see in Gdansk!
Stroll around the Old Town
This is nothing surprisingly considering my mention above.
But be aware that the Old Town of Gdansk is very touristic and so are the prices. If you would like to eat something traditional, it’s recommendable to not search for a restaurant in the Old Town. By the way, Old Town means “stare miasto” in Polish.
Take a moment for Brama Zielona
Brama Zielona in Gdansk is a the most pompous town gate of the city.
After having been destroyed in the Second World War, it has been rebuilt. Moreover, a museum is located above in which interesting exhibitions take place from time to time.
Be a tourist and go to Long Market
I guess the Long Market in Gdansk is by far the most touristic spot of the city.
Moreover, it ends at the Green Gate (= Brama Zielona).
Promenade along the Motlawa
In Gdansk, the Motlawa is the biggest river where even ferry services are offered.
Not any surprisingly, some touristic shops are located right on the promenade.
Search for a typical Polish market
This may not be one of the easiest tasks, but I always enjoy looking at what the locals have to offer.
When getting hungry and not wanting to support the exaggerated prices in the Old Town, it is always a good feeling to buy vegetables from local farmers!
