Gdansk is an up-and-coming city trip destination; hardly a surprise to those who know what this Polish seaport holds in store. Charming shopping streets, bustling restaurants, hip cafés and a lively beach scene. But the biggest draw is the gorgeous old city centre, packed with monuments from the days when Gdansk was one of the richest Hanseatic cities on the Baltic Sea.
Amsterdam clock gables in Poland? Many of the baroque merchant mansions betray the close ties Gdansk had with the Low Countries during the 17th century. This rich history resulted in a picturesque city centre, which has been so painstakingly restored after World War II that Gdansk sometimes resembles a film set. Even among the Polish, Gdansk is a popular destination for a weekend filled with culture, shopping or relaxing by the seashore. The beautiful sandy beach of Sopot is just 30 minutes from the city centre.
