Gdansk City Break tour - Visit a thousand years old historical city
A strategic and highly influential port for nearly a thousand years, Gdańsk was a stronghold of the Teutonic Knights and later became an influential city within the Hanseatic League during the Middle Ages. Largely destroyed in the Second World War, Gdańsk was splendidly rebuilt in the aftermath as one of Europe's most beautiful port cities. Today, Gdańsk has a population of 460,000 and is Poland's largest northern city, drawing numerous visitors into its historic city center, its outstanding museums and its expansive beaches spread along the coast of the Gulf of Gdańsk, making it a popular destination for many Poles and foreign visitors alike.
