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!
I liked it
Best museum I have ever seen. The displays are amazing-they show the personal side of the Solidarity movement very well. Don’t miss the chance to add your own comment to the “heartbeat wall.” Genius.
I played at klub zak in 1994.. was the best time I have had since. CHEST'R blues player from the USA
The gallery in Gdansk was amazing. I loved the local art by a university professor. He had one of the catherdal in Gdansk and another of the crane in Gdansk.
How much does it cost? We are planning a class trip, and we need to know prices.
Thanks for the review. It would be helpful if you could include in your description how many shipyard workers were killed during the 1980 Solidarity movement and strike.
I first saw this on the Amazing Race. Our family is headed to Gdansk in the spring of 2017, (assuming the world doesn't go any crazier), and this will be my first stop!
The statue fits beautifully into its setting in the market street. I was charmed by old Gdansk and wish I had had more time to explore it.
