Cruise to Gdansk
The Port of Gdansk is Poland's largest and oldest port which for centuries, thanks to its flourishing sea trade, has played the role of a driving force behind the economic and cultural growth of Gdansk. Stemming from that foundation, Gdansk grew to become, in the 16th century, the largest and the richest town in Poland, as well as the biggest port on the Baltic Sea.
Nowadays, Gdansk continues to be recognized as the sea capital of Poland, attracting each year 3.5 million tourists from across the world. Its abundant historic monuments and beautiful town houses charmingly stretching along the bank of the Motlawa River remind visitors of the architecture typical of Amsterdam and of the atmosphere of world-renowned Venice in Italy.
Not only history enthusiasts, but all those sensitive to beauty will find here scenic spots filled with a unique atmosphere, and will appreciate the charm of Gdansk's old, picturesque streets, resounding with the music played by buskers that arrive here from all over the world.
However, Gdansk is not the only place in northern Poland that is worthwhile visiting.
