Reviews of Culture in Gdansk
As a Pole, I can assure you that being impolite seems to be Polish identity ;) When I'm abroad I am amazed people can show respect to each other.
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.

The castle is very beautiful, but it's very badly organized. On the website it says that audioguides are available in many languages but when we (me and my boyfriend) got there there were none left (it wasn't even very late in the day) and our only option was to take a very expensive guide. And then we saw some people returning audioguides we asked if we could have them, even if the battery wouldn't last long, for some reason they said they couldn't give us any. And they were extremely impolite. So we just went to see the castle thinking there would at least be some signs, but there is literally NOTHING. You can just wander around and have a look, but you're not going to learn anything, and for us it just wasn't enough. Two stars for the castle itself, no idea what most of the rooms were, but it was very nice to look at.
Gdansk is very beautiful with lovely streets and architecture . I didn't realise Neptunes fountain was so old. I am really pleased I visited this part of Poland. Sopot was the beach resort we stayed in again well worth a visit.
A very beautiful museum and a good impression of Solidarity and Polish politic in the 80s ! About Poland and later the rest of the world!
Fascinating. Highlights a very important event in recent European history.
It was wonderful staying in Poland and seeing the statue!
I really liked the statue when I saw it!
This is an excellent museum. A must-see in Gdansk.
Great day out. Lots to see in the castle great food aroind the castle and malbork itself is not a bad little place to have a wander around
The fastest train is TLK it takes about 50 minutes. With the regional train it's about 1:10. We bought the tickets today for the regional train and to go there and back again was 45 sloty in total. I can imagine the TLK is even more expensive. Malbork is a great site but please be honest about it.
A wonderful location for concerts. Privileged to have been here.
Looks like a rocket about to take off! Strange and monumental, impressive building especially when you realise how old it is.
It doesn't look like one of those huge museums where you can spend the whole day but when I bought the ticket and started to wander around I noticed how there were more and more exhibitions to see (I really spent the whole day there!).
Hi David, I have checked the link to their website and it works fine for me. It is zamek.malbork.pl if you are having any probs - and they have a section in English too.
We are very lucky to see this magnificent church while we are in Rematowa drydock Gdansk,our Superintendent arrange this trip and this church was one of the place we have been.I can tell every one that its one of a kind church that can be visited because of the magnificent organ that they have and the interior of the church.I thank GOD to give me this opportunity to see such place.
just to let you know that your link to Malbork Castle does not seem to work.
I went to see their performance of RENT few years ago and it was amazing. I've seen the show on Broadway and I must say that their version of it was just as worthy. Amazingly talented and great people, very memorable performance. I like the musicals better but that could just be a personal preference. Go see them!
Yes! I agree. We went on a 10 day Baltic cruise and this was the most interesting and enjoyable day we spent. It rained all day, but we did not care. Malbork Castle was FANTASTIC. The old part of Gdansk has been refurbished and the shops were not only beautiful outside but also inside. Plus the shopping was excellent. Some cruises are dropping this port and I think it's a shame. If you can get to this area, be sure to visit both places.
The castle itself is one of those most stunning I have seen anywhere & well worth a visit,( I speak as a very well-travelled person) but for those who speak no Polish, bee warned that you need to purchase a guide in your own language before entering the castle as there are no other language signs or indications available. I had taken the time from a recent business trip to travel the distance from Warsaw especially to see it, but fortunately the unhelpful & uncaring museum staff failed to completely spoil my enjoyment of such a splendid place. Speaking to other nationalities, during my visit, who also endured the same bad behaviour, I can only hope that the local tourist office can take some time to put at least some signs (words not even necessary) for foreigners & train their staff to behave with politeness towards their visitors. Possibly it's only independent visitors they resent, but sometimes it's not possible to visit in a group, for history enthusiasts such as myself!!!
The best way to see a concert in Gdansk!
Quite a sight. As if one were to be pulled back in time.
Don't miss this place - it has some great exhibitions and concerts
buongiorno, mi chiamo monica bonomi sono un'attrice e regista italiana. Il vostro festival di Shakespeare è molto interessante e mi piacerebbe partecipare. Volevo avere informazioni circa i termini del bando e il materiale. Ho uno spettacolo tratto da Amleto. Per conoscenza vi invio l'indirizzo di youtube su cui potete visionare un pezzo di un monologo recitato da me tratto da un testo di F. Kafka. Grazie mille e buona giornata.

I am an Indian & Its was my first visit to a castle. It was really Huge & has got an amazing history. read more here http://ullekha.blogspot.com/search/label/Malbork%20Castle
Don't deny that Wales has some fine castles, but surely what makes this fascinating to those of us further West, is the fact that its red brick. And of course that it was the seat of the Teutonic Knights. A real feast for the eyes.
Perhaps Krakow's has the edge but enjoyed a saunter round here. Happy to recommend
Enjoyed a stroll around here - ideal for a rainy day!
This castle is indeed nice but please remember it is made pout of brick. If you want to see some fine castles, I'm absolutely positive that the UK/Wales has some of the best in the world
Gdansk is one of the finest cities in Europe and Malbork is the frosting on the cake! If you haven't seen either site, you haven't seen Europe!
Amazing. Apparently, the Hitler Youth used to make pilgrimages here from across Germany, this being the seat of the Teutonic knights. They had special ceremonies.
Worth dropping by. Gives an idea of how wealthy the city was in Renaissance times. Likewise the facades of buildings, all beautifully restored
Was interesting come here, so close to the 70th anniversary of the start of the war. Certainly gets the brain ticking over...
what information were You looking for? I had no problems :)
