Visit Gdansk

Gdańsk, surrounded by the Tricity Landscape Park on the outskirts and facing the sea in its northern parts, is one of the most attractive places in Poland. Its complex history with such milestones as the Hanseatic prosperous times, Teutonic Knights era, the II World War or abolition of Communism by Solidarity labor union made their mark on its diverse architecture and cultural heritage. The modern face of the city owes its shape to many local and international investments. The city, being part of the Tricity conurbation, takes advantage from the synergy effect in tourism, trade, transportation and other aspects of economy.
