Russians and Byelorussians do not need visa, all others do. To get visa time and invitation (= money) is needed.

Travel Tips for Gdansk

The Long Market (Dlugi Targ)

by matcrazy1

The main east-west axis of the old town, that is the Long Street, broadens at its eastern end to form the longitudinal square called the Long Market. It is the heart of Gdansk old town now and in the past. Crowds of locals and visitors, numerous pubs, restaurants, street stalls, local shops and amazing architecture of burgher houses make this place unforgettable.

Solidarity then and now

by matcrazy1

I saw Gdansk streets decorated with numerous Solidarity flags at the 25th anniversary of the movement. I saw the Solidarity flag proudly flown on a flagpole of a yacht in Wisloujscie (Vistulamouth). But few Gdansk citizens decorated windows of their private houses with the flags. Why?

The Solidarity movement was born in Gdansk shipyard in August 1980. It was created by generation of 1950' and older. Thus, the younger people, born in 1970' and later can't remember those great days and months of 1980 - 1981. Instead, many of them may remember mistakes made by later leaders of the Solidarity union in 1990' when Poland regained independance and many of the Solidarity leaders ruled the country.

Lech Walesa was the President of Poland in 1990 - 1995. He was defeated (by a small number of votes) by a former communist activist and the Ministry of Sport in the last communist government - Alexander Kwasniewski, in the elections of 1995. The victory of so-called post-communists 5-6 years after the fall of the communism was shocking even if it was mainly the painful price which had to be paid for necessary economic reforms undertaken by the new pro-Solidarity government.

Thus talking with locals about the Solidarity now, you may hear quite different opinions. Most folks either have no opinion (they are too young) or have a lot of sympathy to the first, old Solidarity movement, legal in 1980 - 1981 and illegal 1982 - 1989 during and after the marshal law. The second Solidarity (re-born in 1989) has significantly less fans.

Let's go to the seaside in Sopot!

by Carletto76

Tired of going around the wonderful streets of old Gdansk? If there's good weather why don't you go to Sopot, the long sandy beach between Gdansk and Gdynia!

The only problem could be the Baltic sea, which is quite cold, and unfortunately not very clean in this part of Poland, since Sopot is really close to the harbour in Gdansk... but anyway the beach is nice and it's a good place to sunbathe and just enjoy with friends!

Trip to Wdzydze


Wdzydze is a small village in the Kashubia region about 70 km west of Gdansk. It is home to the oldest Polish Outdoor Museum (Skansen) which was founded in 1906. In a nature surrounding the Museum presents regional architecture from a period between the 18th and 20th century. About 40 wooden buildings are situated in the museum area.
