gdansk sightseeing

by hondekind

I ONLY HAVE ONE, MAYBE TWO DAYS IN GDANSK. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS A MUST SEE?

Re: gdansk sightseeing

by ATLC

Simply walk the small town center and enjoy the architecture. There is a large brick church, browse all that loooovely and cheap amber jewelry. That's just my first spontaneous reaction from memory. Most probably others can give details as to museums and such.

Re: gdansk sightseeing

by B.david

Looking at your tight schedule, I would suggest that you must visit the below mentioned places for sure.
1. Mariacka Street (ulica Mariacka)
2. Krynica Morska
3. Three Crosses Monument and
4. Old Town
Mariacka Street offers one of the most beautiful and architecturally unique streets in Gdansk. Many street performances are held on a daily basis.

The Three Crosses Monument is a beautiful monument and is within walking distance of city center. It was made to honor the 32 workers killed by the communist regime during protests in 1970.

Malbork Castle, about an hours drive away! Brilliant Teutonic Knights stronghold vertually destroyed in WW2 and rebuilt afterwards!

Re: gdansk sightseeing

To get to 'my' places you should follow the historical streets anyway.
There is one place where Poles and allies and Germans believe the IIWW was began- Westerplatte (not much left at the moment there- as far as I remeber). It is quite controversial in fact because the war started for other nations earlier or later (1936?,1937?,1938?,1941?).
For me the most spectacular (even more than Gdansk) place is Marienburg/Malbork castle (as stated on one of post above).
You can go the first and still enjoy a stroll through Gdansk streets in the second half on the day (or take two days)

Travel Tips for Gdansk

It's all in the Detail

by Ekaterinburg

One of my absolute favourite things about Gdansk is the huge variety of styles and periods of architecture. The townhouses in the historic centre could be gothic, baroque, renaissance, or even mannerist or rococo. As well as this every house has its own unique features, whether it be a porch, a decorative fieze, fancy stonework or statues on top. It's easy to see those at ground level but unless you go around with your head craned you are not going to see all the statues on top. The golden house for example has four statues: Cleopatra,Oedipus,Achilles and Antigone.The Golden Gate has eight statues of allegorical figures on both sides of the roof. These are just the tip of the iceberg, so even if it's a bit of a pain in the neck, if you like sculpture make sure you check out all the roof statuary.

Street performers love tourists!

by gosiaPL

In any tourist area you're bound to see street performers in the high season, and Gdansk is no different. These young guys gave quite a show and it was all spiced with good humour! Lots of people stopped by and literally lined a stage for them. Sure you're expected to drop a penny in their collection hat but haven't they earned it?
Another guy was a mime that stood still and moved only when you approached him and least expected it. He reminded me of John Lennon. Lots of street musicians too, and some of them were really good! They all add up to the lively vibrant atmosphere of the old Gdansk...

There is a really cool open...

by Wiktoria

There is a really cool open air theatre that performs its plays on the beach (yes, on the beach!) every summer. Its season lasts from July 6 through August 12. Only a little over one month so don't miss it. The theatre has a marvelous director. She has some great ideas. The plays are performed on the beach in Gdynia (one of the Tri-Cities). You can see the live plays every night at 8PM. The sound of the waves and the birds will add to the special atmosphere.

Where do they live?

by matcrazy1

Although Gdansk is a fast growing city and the middle class seems to grow faster there than in many other Polish cities (excluding Krakow and Warsaw), most Gdansk citizens still live in small apartments/flats packed one by one in ugly, huge apartment buildings built in suburbs. These apartments were built mostly in 1970' by state-owned companies from cement elements made in so called "factories of houses". Their poor quality perfectly followed the quality of life in the whole Soviet bloc. Well, most of them have been already painted, many have been insulated to save on heating since 1990. Smaller appartment buildings with red-tiled gable roofs built in more central locations in 1950' look better. But living in 2 rooms on, say 50 or 60 square meters, is hard especially for families of 3 or more people (majority).

Thus, more and more people (still minority though) whose income and savings had grown, decide to take out a long-term bank loan to buy a new house. I have seen many new, modern houses in some districts of Gdansk. Few looks like luxury residences. Look at a house of neighbours of the Walesas.

Apartment blocks

by HORSCHECK

There are still many monolithic Soviet-era apartment blocks from communist times in the suburbs of Gdansk. At present these fomer grey looking apartment blocks are painted in all kinds of colours to make them look nicer.
I had a look at some of these apartment blocks in the Nowy Port district of Gdansk.
Nowy Port is located north of the city centre and can be reached with trams 4, 10, 14 and 15.
