Gdansk

World Capital of Amber

Although its history goes back a thousand years, Gdansk represents one of Poland's most modern urban centers, its thriving economy boosted by a lively tourism sector. A major seaport for ages, the city saw some of its best and worst moments in the middle of the 20th century. Nearly leveled in World War II, Gdansk painstakingly restored its medieval architecture during subsequent decades, transforming itself into one of Europe's most visually appealing port cities. The historical central district--the starting point for most sightseeing tours--remains a compact area, offering easy foot access to numerous monuments, museums, and restaurants. To explore Gdansk's diverse outlying neighborhoods, use the city's public transport system. Use our Poland trip planner to arrange your visit to Gdansk and other destinations in Poland.
