What we will do
  • We leave Gdynia behind us on a coach headed towards Gdańsk, the "maritime" capital of Poland, whose history stretches back a thousand years.
  • Once there, we go on a stroll around the city centre, which was rebuilt with exceptional precision after being destroyed during the Second World War. We admire marvellous decorated buildings and their unique combination of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque style forming a series of elaborate façades, which are topped off with countless ornamental pinnacles.
  • We walk along the Royal Way, made up of the Long Market Square and Street, the ceremonial route along which the Royals travelled when they entered the city. We get the chance to see numerous sights such as the imposing Town Hall and Neptune's Fountain, the symbol of the city with an original 16th-century wrought-iron balustrade surrounding the statue.
  • We then walk along Mariacka street, maybe the most romantic place in Gdańsk and a charming pebbled alleyway with period lampposts and elegant façades with picturesque shops.
  • We move on to St. Mary's church, the largest brick building in Europe that can seat up to 25,000 people. The walls of this Gothic church, which was built over the course of 160 years, conceal a bright and spacious interior with large windows and more than 30 finely decorated chapels in addition to a beautiful astronomic clock and many works of art.
  • We end our walk with a stop at the Brovarnia Gdansk brewery where we find out more about the production process, which uses exclusively natural ingredients, and get the chance to try local artisanal beer. The panoramic terrace offers a breathtaking view over the city.
