World War II took its toll on Gdansk. It all started there. The Germans and the Russians all had a go. The Poles have done a fantastic job of restoring the place. Ship repairs and building still seem to be thriving and just to add, the Baltic is called the Baltic for a reason. Jeez it was cold.

Visited with friends in December. The old town is so so beautiful with buildings from the 17th century, shops and restaurants. They have the Xmas market happening then which made the place even more magical, you can get some great food and warm mulled wine. Xmas lights at night are amazing too.

We loved the Old Town in Gdansk. After visiting the south, west, east and - eventually -Gdansk to the north of Poland, I can definitely recommend spending time here. It's touristy for sure, but in a nice way. Plenty of the usual shops, little stalls selling (over-priced) amber, but it's beautiful with stunning architecture and a genuine charm.

The old town of Gdansk is full of History and architecture, nearly flattened by the events of WWII, rebuild to its glory to its original shape over the years.

Lovely to walk around including by the waterways. Lots of souvenir shops & amber jewellers churches and restaurants. We visited when the Xmas market was on. Look for a hotel here rather than in the newer part by the shopping Centre. Can be annoying the number of people trying to get you into restaurants but thats the only downside

The old town in Gdansk is full of beautiful houses but of course also souvenir shops and overpriced restaurants. Worth visiting but I recommend getting to know Gdansk in wider area and travelling for example to Sopot aswell.

Stayed for days in this wonderful location. Love the old town and if you take time to look up at the buildings you'll see some outstanding architecture. Wonder off the beaten track to see some real gems that the town has to offer. Beautiful.
