Old Town, Gdansk
(4.8/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Old Town represents a historic section in one of Poland's first cities. Although much of this area features post-World War II reconstructions, you'll also have a chance to experience the spirit of the Middle Ages as you explore. Begin at the famed city hall, constructed in the final decades of the 14th century when Teutonic Knights ruled this region. The imposing five-story building, topped by a gilt statue of King Sigismund Vasa, houses a renowned museum dedicated to the history of the city. As you continue, admire the many Gothic and Baroque buildings that appear frozen in time from centuries ago. For Old Town and beyond, use our Gdansk vacation builder to get the most from your Gdansk vacation.

  • The Old City hosts many marvelous buildings as well as ample eateries to satisfy most tastes - well worth a visit especially if museums and architecture are of interest 
  • a mandatory walk through the beautiful streets, a lot of monuments, especially I recommend a walk over the motława River, is where to eat and drink:) Note always many tourists.
