Things to do

Gdansk's tumultuous past is woven into this historic city

Gdansk is one of the most accessible cities in Europe and it is a pleasure to walk her streets. The narrow cobbled streets, gigantic brick churches and bevvy of grand renaissance townhouses provide a scenic backdrop to the nucleus of the city. In order to gain a feel for the city’s layout, first head up the never-ending spiral staircase of St Mary’s Church. Here you will find a perfect bird’s-eye view of Gdansk spreading out below you. The shipyards are also a must-visit for anyone new to the city. Here you will find Roads to Freedom, a wonderful museum that details the rise of the solidarnosc movement and the struggles they faced during the 1980’s. With Gdansk’s tumultuous past, it is also worth seeking out the monument that marks the area where a couple of hundred Polish soldiers resisted the advances of over 3,000 German soldiers in the first throes of WWII.
