Gdańsk

Gdańsk

A city with over 1000 years of tradition, the sea capital of Poland and one of the largest ports on the Baltic Sea. This unique metropolis has always been filled with the spirit of freedom and courage. The Latin phrase "Nec Temere, Nec Timide", which is the motto of the Neptune's Castle, best reflects the character of this once Hanseatic city. This is a timeless slogan that each of us should follow: Neither rashly nor timidly.

The cradle of freedom and Solidarity

The cradle of freedom and Solidarity

Three 42-meter-high crosses with anchors - Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers (Pomnik Poległych Stoczniowców) of 1970 standing on the Solidarity Square (Plac Solidarności), adjacent to the European Solidarity Center (Europejskie Centrum Solidarności), an interactive museum telling about the freedom aspirations of Poles. It is a story about the struggle against the communist regime, about the hope and sacrifice suffered by the nations imprisoned behind the Iron Curtain. Finally, it is a story about a great victory that they ultimately won, changing their fate and the fate of the whole world. Nearby, in the Gdańsk Shipyard (Stocznia Gdańska), the famous strike began in August 1980, which soon "set fire" to all of Poland and forced the authorities of the Polish People's Republic to make numerous compromises, including the legalization of the Solidarity Trade Union. The inhabitants of Gdańsk have always been brave, proud of their city and valued independence.

Museum of the Second World War (Muzeum II Wojny Światowej)

Not so long ago, the museum enriched the already great educational and tourist offer of Gdańsk. It features one of the largest exhibitions in the world concerning this bloody conflict. The main exhibition is located 14 meters underground and tells, among others, about the heroes of Westerplatte and the Polish Post Office in Gdańsk, who were the first to put up a heroic resistance to the Nazi invaders. In the museum, one can learn about this terrible war from the perspective of many nations and many regions of the world.

The Royal Route (Droga Królewska)  - Main City

The Royal Route (Droga Królewska) - Main City

The most important destination for trips from Poland and around the world is the Main City, which is the most famous, historic part of Gdańsk. A multilingual crowd admires the iconic view of the Motława River, where tourist vessels moor surrounded by tenement houses on the waterfront and the rebuilt Granary Island (Wyspa Spichrzów). This is the place where  groups admire one of the icons of Gdańsk - the Crane, which is the largest medieval port crane in Europe, which is now part of the museum.

The Royal Route (Droga Królewska) - The Long Market (Długi Targ), Neptune's Fountain (Fontanna Neptuna)

Tourists who pass through the Green Gate to The Long Market, maintained in the style of Dutch mannerism, can admire the Royal Route, which is made up of several dozen tenement houses, carefully rebuilt after the war. The tower of the Main Town Hall rises majestically over the Route - it invariably arouses admiration and delight. Just like the Neptune Fountain, the Golden House (Złota Kamienica) or the Artus Court (Dwór Artusa) located nearby. It is worth noting that the latter building is a place where, under a stellar and palm vault, amid paintings and statues, the first Gdańsk beer was served, masquerades were held, various brotherhoods were seated, court hearings took place and monarchs were received.

The Royal Route (Droga Królewska) - Artus Court (Dwór Artusa)

The Artus Court is an inseparable part of the previously mentioned Royal Route. It started with the Upland Gate (Brama Wyżynna)  and the Golden Gate (Brama Złota) which were used for triumphal entrances to the city. Then the processions traveled along the Długa Street to reach the Long Market (Długi Targ). Today, this entire sector is a beautiful, colorful and lively promenade.

The Royal Route (Droga Królewska) - Co-Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Bazylika Konkatedralna Wniebowzięcia NMP)

The ground floors of the Royal Route tenement houses are full of quaint premises - e.g. the kids’ favorite place is Manufaktura Cukierków Ciu Ciu at the Długa Street. In turn, an example of brick Gothic style typical of the Baltic coast area is the Co-Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a massive bell tower. It houses, among others, a gothic figure of the Beautiful Madonna of Gdańsk, Pietà and the 5-meter high Altar of the Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, while the terrace at the top of the 82-meter tower, given good weather, offers wonderful views.

Terraces with stairs leading up to them and descents to the cellars, are also characteristic of the historic center of Gdańsk. In front of them there are numerous eye-catching stalls with souvenirs, including amber artifacts - a real treasure of Gdańsk. While strolling around the Main City, it is also worth visiting the Amber Museum and the unique Shakespeare Theater with an open roof and its famous Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival.
