Gdansk, Poland Old Town in Pictures

 Gdansk, Poland Old Town in Pictures

It’s only appropriate that my first blog post is about my birth city. Gdansk, Poland is often overlooked in favour of Kraków and Warsaw, but it’s definitely worth your time to visit. When I’m asked where I was born and I reply Gdansk, I typically get one of two reactions; a confused look followed up with “where’s that?” or a comment about Lech Wałęsa and/or the Solidarity movement of the 1980’s.

Gdansk has changed a lot since Poland joined the European Union in 2004. The city has seen considerable investment, it was one of the host cities for the 2012 European football championship, and has seen a steady increase in development and tourism over the years. The newest addition to the city is the Museum of The Second World War which opened in 2017.

The first known written record of the city dates back to the year 997, so the city is not short on history. The pictures offered are just a sample of the Stare Miasto (old town).

Enjoy.
