Three days in the Tri-City

by jonathanbarker

Hello, I am a VT member and am visiting Gdansk arriving there by plane on August 27th. Although not my first visit to Poland it is my first to the Baltic coast. I have already read Askla's guide and so will need to take the 210 bus from the airport. Is it clear where the bus stop is? I was rather lost when I arrived into Warsaw during my last trip to Krakow (Euromeet 2010). Can I buy a ticket at the airport?

At the moment am trying to arrange a programme and have a good idea of what I want to see, including the main town, anything associated with the Solidarity movement and to spend some time around the beach and also hoping to meet people and to enjoy good food and drink in some bars cafes and restaurants. Do you know of any organised walking tours?

Any local recommendations are gratefully appreciated.

thank you (dziekuje)

I then will be moving onto Poznan where I will have some time after lunch and early evening as I have a train to catch at 21.30.


I will soon be booking a hostel to spend three nights and wondered if anyone has a recommendation please.

I´m not sure whether there are organised walking tours, but downtown Gdansk is easy to get around on your own and see the historic sites. you can easily walk from the station to the shipyard where you will see the Solidarnosc monument, and on the area of the shipyard there is a museum with an exhibition "Ways to freedom" on the history of the Polish civil rights movement. the bars and restaurants in downtown Gdansk are pretty much touristy, but if you hang out at Gdynia at the port and beach you will find a lot of pubs and places where local people and students meet. you can also visit some museum ships. Sopot is a bit of a classic spa town, and the Grand hotel at the pier is worth visiting for a drink or coffee to soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the view of the sea

Wish you good luck

Travel Tips for Gdansk

Tri city

by deeper_blue

Gdansk is known as one of the tri-cities, the other two (further north on the coast) are Sopot and Gdynia. Gdansk is the larger of the three but they all have their own character. Sopot is busiest in the summer for beaches and parties. The cities had a short period of German rule, Gdansk (then known as Danzig) later had free independent rule.

The largest brick church in Europe

by Pawtuxet

You almost fall over backwards when you try to look up to the top of the steeple on this church. It is enormous. Seems to go on for about a full city block. You could climb the 405 steps to the top and look out at what I am sure is an amazing view. However, your Pawtuxet visitor chose not to scale that gigantic staircase. There is an astronomical clock dating from 1464 which adds interest to the steeple. It shows the time, the date, the phases of the moon, and the position of the sun in relation to the zodiac signs. There is an Adam and Eve who ring the bell on the hour

St. Dominic's Fair

by gosiaPL

St. Dominic's Fair is an open-air fun, culture and shopping event, the largest of this kind in Poland, and one of the largest in Europe. Established in 1260, it now enjoys over 740 years' old tradition. It usually lasts about three weeks: it starts at the end of July and extends into the first two decades of August to cover the Catholic feast of St. Dominic.
The fair occupies a good portion of the Old Town's centre, with hundreds of vendors, artisans and antique collectoirs exhibiting their merchandise on stands in several streets. Cultural events include brass-bands festival, street theatres performances, festival of children artists, rock concerts, etc. Oh, and fireworks shows as well :-)
The fair is visited by approximately 150 thousand people daily, can you imagine the crowds? That's where you really need to watch out for pickpockets.

Gdansk law on a lawn!

by matcrazy1

This fascinating warning sign, put on a public lawn in the Oliva Park, says: "Do not feed pigeons on the lawns!" The hundreds of Gdansk pigeons will encourage you to break that law. Remember, do feed them but never, ever on public lawns! Tthey eat common bread. Do not forget to crumble it.

Well, warning for US/Canadian (maybe Australian ???) visitors.
You are in old (aristocratic, old-fashionable, silly, unpractical - choose what you want) Europe. Lawns in Gdansk (both public and private) are for looking at them not for walking on them. Do not expect to see the warning table: "Keep off the grass!" It's the general rule not to walk on a lawn unless you see "walking on the grass allowed." However, I have never seen it :-).

Stare Miasto - often ignored

by Ekaterinburg

The Glowne Miasto in Gdansk is so stunning that some visitors, especially those with limited time tend to stay strictly within its boundries. There's much more to Gdansk than Dluga, Dlugi Targ and The Long Embankment. I did not see a fraction of what I wanted to see - you'd need at least a week to do Gdank justice- but I really enjoyed my forays into the area outside the very centre. The atmosphere is quite different and shows another side of Gdansk than just the picturesque. The streets around the train station, the Great Mill and St Katherine's Church are full of character. Heavy red brick and a sometimes rather sombre look - this was actually what I expected Gdansk to look like despite having seen numerous pictures of the centre. This red bricked architecture is very reminiscent of some of the industrial cities of Northern UK and parts of Gdansk reminded me of Manchester.There are numerous street markets around here and people sitting in communal gardens outside their apartments. The objects of desire for me in all these markets were the giant sunflower heads being sold, presumably, for their seeds. I will never be able to appreciate seeds bought in a bag again.
