Gdansk or Sopot for new year eve holidays

by gerico.one

Hi all.

I am coming in Gdansk for 3/4 days during the end of the year 2008 holidays with a friend.

I am looking for a cheap accomodation in hostel or apartment.

For us it's very important to join the nightlife,so i need infos about the best zone where to seach it.

Any suggestion? I heard the best place for nightlife is Sopot.

I need any useful information about local clubbing nightlife especially for the last day of the year.

I'll be glad to meet members for a beer.

I think Gdansk will have also great NYE celebrations. You can stay in Sopot, someday/night come to Gdansk for party.
For information you can check pages in Virtual Tourist


Enjoy these beautiful cities!!

The history of Gdansk - part five :)

by Dagon

Throughout the post-war period Gdañsk has invariably remained the synonym of Polish aspirations to and actions aiming at freedom. December 1970 left a tragic mark on the city and its inhabitants. Shots fired at the striking workers took their toll. Today, the famous "Three Crosses" or Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers that stands at the gates to the Gdañsk Shipyard honours the memory of the victims.

Contemporary historians consider the "Gdañsk August "of 1980 the breakthrough that triggered the process of decomposition of the post-war order on the Old Continent. The mass strikes staged then led to signing the famous August Agreement at the Gdañsk Shipyard. This formed a crack in the block that gradually led to the emergence of a new political map of Europe. Gdañsk earned another image. It became the city the world will always associate with free trade unions, "Solidarity ", and the winner of the Nobel peace prize and first President of the III Republic of Poland - Lech Wa³êsa.

In 1997 Gdañsk celebrated its millennium and worshipped its patron, St Adalbert, thanks to whom the name of the city on the Mot³awa River was first mentioned in written records. Widely open to the world, Gdañsk has always been a European city to the core. "Nec temere, nec timide", i.e. fearlessly but reasonably, is its motto one can read in Latin on the city 's grand coat of arms. History has travelled a full circle. The contemporary Gdañsk rings with life as in the olden days, and retaining its memories of the past is building its own, separate identity.

by Eberhard

There is still a lot of difference between the big and bigger cities and the villages in the country. While, as usual, people in the country are more traditional and conservative, people in the cities have taken over habits from the western world (which is not necessarily an advantage). Travelling through the country, one should respect this situation by dressing and behaving correctly.
For Polish people hospitality is very important and in case you are invited, bring a small gift or flowers.tn

Sail to Gdansk and nearby lakes

by matcrazy1

Gdansk is located by the Motlawa River (downtown) and along the Dead Vistula River, a few kilometers down its mouth to the Baltic Sea. The Dead Vistula is linked with a number of nearby lakes.

In 2001 my friends sailed so called Radunia Loop ("kolko Radunskie"), took a lot of awesome pictures and had a great fun. It's the 40 km of scenic sail (an option is kayaking) along the Radunia River and 10 lakes near Gdansk (part of the Great Masurian Lakes). The friends wanted me to join them but unfortunately I couldn't. They climbed the mountain or better to say the hill of Wiezyca which is the highest point all around the European Lowland (Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Russia) although it's only 328.6 m high. My friends hired an inland yacht in Gdansk for a week in summer 2001. As I remember well they paid some 100 zl (25 euros) per day for a yacht for up 10 persons.

For up-to-date info ask at any Gdansk tourist information office, follow the link given below or start your search for yacht charters in Gdansk and the Great Masurian Lakes from:

St. Valentine's church.

by Dagon

Small, old and beautiful church situated in Matarnia. Inside are many great pieces of art, like sculptures and paintings.
To get there you must ride up Slowackiego street. It's situated just after the bridge above bypass road. You must turn right (riding from Gdansk) becouse it's not placed just near of Slowackiego street. You can ask people walking there (in polish - kosciol Walentego) Unfottunattly gettng inside is quite difficult, becouse it's opened rarely.

Good luck
