Gdansk, Poland Luxury Cruises

Overview

The port at Gdansk is one of the most popular in northern Europe and features on a number of Baltic cruise itineraries. When you disembark, you'll only be a short walk away from the port's entrance from where you can catch a taxi or bus into Old Town.

A city of immense historical importance, Gdansk is a coastal destination in Poland which was completely rebuilt after WWII. Following its restoration, the city has evolved into a vibrant up-and-coming cosmopolitan metropolis which still manages to keep hold of its old-word charm. The perfect place for a city break full of appeal, class and excitement, Gdansk offers plenty for every traveller to enjoy.

Sightseeing in Gdansk

Gdansk is a majestic city with such a vast array of attractions and sights that you'll be spoilt for choice when you arrive. Thanks to its rich history, the city is brimming with museums, monuments and statues which all tell a fascinating story. To get the most out of your visit to Gdansk, we suggest you see at least one of the following sights:

Oliwa Cathedral: standing on the western side of Oliwa Park, this stunning structure boasts an incredible history involving fire, thefts and kidnappings. The organ which can be found inside the cathedral is truly spectacular and features trumpet-playing angels and moving cherubs, alongside 7,896 pipes and 110 registers.

Roads to Freedom Exhibition: This fascinating display covers the events which took place between 1945 and 1989 in Poland, with the help of genuine photographs, documents and even video recordings. Descriptions and audio tours are available in English, which really helps bring the exhibition to life for visitors of all ages.

Three Crosses Monument: Built in commemoration of the victims of the workers' revolt in 1970, this monument features three crosses in the shape of anchors. It stretches a staggering 42 metres into the sky and weighs 139 tonnes, making it visible from a very long distance away. Surrounding the monument you'll find a number of plaques and memorials in honour of victims of totalitarianism.

Shopping in Gdansk

Gdansk is one of the best places in the Baltics to buy accessories and crafts made of amber. If you're interested in purchasing some, you'll find the biggest concentration of stores at Duga and Mariacka, where you'll have a wealth of shops to choose from.

Toward the north of the city in Sopot, you'll find a bustling commercial district with everything from designer fashion boutiques and souvenir kiosks to perfume stores and electronic shops. If you want everything under one roof, take a stroll along the coast, where you'll come across a number of shopping centres and malls.

Eating Out in Gdansk

The Polish people are passionate about food and this clearly comes across in their restaurants. There is a wonderful mix of traditional Polish restaurants serving authentic dishes, as well as plenty of international restaurants serving popular favourites.

You'll find restaurants offering sophisticated cuisine from Europe, exotic flavours from the Middle East and original Gdansk food down almost every street, providing the ideal dining experience for even the most demanding gourmand.

If you want to try the local cuisine, keep an eye out for restaurants serving bigos (Poland's national dish similar to a meat stew), golubtsy (stuffed cabbage rolls) and pierogi (baked or fried dumplings).
