European Best Destination 2017
Gdansk was ranked third in the prestigious European Best Destination 2017 competition, second only to Porto and Milan. This success can be attributed to the ocean of opportunities and attractions that Gdansk offers. See the magnificent monuments dating back to the Middle Ages, the unique Old Town as well as the impressive burgher tenement houses where amber artisans formerly had their workshops. The mix of cinemas, theatres, including a replica of The Globe, clubs and restaurants ensure it teems with life and culture, with no opportunity for boredom. In summer, you can unwind by relaxing on the beaches of the Baltic Sea. In their vicinity is the famous Gdansk Shipyard, where in the 1980s the Polish people began making their way towards freedom. The leader of the strike, Lech Walesa, has since lent his name to the modern and comfortable Lech Walesa Airport, from where you can travel easily to all the major European cities – from Iceland to Malta.
