There is a good deal of online reading to be found on Gdansk, particularly from UK publications.  To check out some of the advice, information, and history to be uncovered on the city while surfing the web, try clicking here for links to articles from The Guardian, Telegraph, and GoPoland!

There are so many history books on Gdansk, as it was the prime location of the beginning of the end of the Cold War.  Of the reads pertaining to Gdansk’s strikes of 1980, perhaps the best would be The Struggle and the Triumph: An Autobiography by Lech Walesa, the man who led the struggle for Polish liberation and autonomy in the decade before the toppling of the Berlin Wall.

Although there are additional texts on Gdansk, when it comes to relevant travel guides the best would be the most established chains’ products pertaining to Poland.  Grab Lonely Planet Poland by Tom Parkinson, Richard Watkins, and Neil Wilson or Eyewitness Travel Guides’ Poland put out by DK Publishing.  Another book that covers Gdansk and would be of particular interest to foodies the world over would be Eat Smart in Poland: How to Decipher the Menu, Know the Market Foods and Embark on a Tasting Adventure by Joan Peterson, David Peterson, and S.V. Medaris.
