Culture in Gdansk

Like many of Poland's fine cities, Gdansk boasts a rich cultural heritage. There are few places on this planet which can claim as colourful a history as this Baltic beauty. One has but to look at the last few centuries to find the proof: years under Polish rule... times with the Germans... the days of autonomy. Tack on to that a membership in the 'ol Hanseatic League and you've got yourself some colour. The city and its personality reflect this colorful past and the many cultures which have shaped its identity. Today, Gdansk is one of Poland's cultural powerhouses with a score of festivals, museums and galleries to prove it. Snoop around and culture yourself up a bit!
