Gdansk – charming and historic Hanseatic city
Gdansk is a charming and historic Hanseatic city and a popular destination in Northern Poland. Did you know that the Old Town of Gdansk was completely rebuilt – and very skilfully so – in the 1960s, after having been destroyed at the end of World War II? The centre of Gdansk is full of colourful buildings and delightful sights. Grand yet cosy Gdansk is a great city break destination that demonstrates the rich history of the Baltic Sea.
Gdansk is a great choice for a walking enthusiast. The city is easy and comfortable to discover on foot, as distances are not long and there are nice things to see wherever you go. Gdansk has comparably lower price levels than some other European cities, so you can enjoy a great selection of cafés and restaurants, as well as shopping.
Gdansk's most famous sights include the Fountain of Neptune, the magnificent Church of St. Mary – Europe's largest brick church – and its astrological clock-face, as well as the beautiful historic buildings on Dluga Street.
Gdansk along with its sister cities Gdynia and Sopot forms a three-city entity which is conveniently discoverable during a day tour to all three. You could also easily combine a city break with a summer holiday as some of the best beaches in Europe, as well as Finnair Holidays hotels, are located in Sopot, just a half-hour's drive from Gdansk.
