Historic Maritime City
From its coastal position beside the Baltic Sea, Gdansk’s thriving port has given the city its own unique look and atmosphere. Visitors will notice influences from all over Europe, brought to Gdansk by merchants keen to trade with Poland. While substantial parts of the city had to be rebuilt in the aftermath of WWII, Gdansk is still home to many historic buildings dating as far back as the 14th century. Walk the Old Town’s Royal Way, admiring the Golden Gate and Neptune’s Fountain along the way, then relax at the elegant waterfront marina, lined with stylish bars and eateries and museums. Gdansk also attracts many visitors with its excellent museums.
The only cultural route that currently stops in Gdansk is The Hansa.
