Gdansk In Pictures: Best Of The World’s Top Tourist Destination In Making

The last stop on our Eurotrip turned out to be an absolute icing on the cake. Gdansk, the port city of Poland, was the perfect enchantress with mood-lit ports, fine architecture, breezy coast, and exuberant atmosphere yet basking in the festivities.

The city was our concluding destination before we boarded the intercity train to Warsaw for my onward flight to New Delhi. I must admit that Poland’s fourth largest metropolitan city is certainly the most beautiful metro city I have been! Kissed by the Baltic Sea in the North, Gdansk still revels in its magnificent history.

The city is fitting in numerous ways when contrasted against other Polish cities. More English speaking/understanding people, better tourist amenities (exchange counters), fine architecture, and unparalleled coastal charm are my top pick while maintaining Gdansk as Poland’s best.

Save a day or two, and you can actually plan on a church trail, city-hopping, museum visit close to Gdansk Port, or just go for a walk through the not-so-busy bylanes with gothic structures overlooking from all around. The city has everything perfect about it and pictures stand by all the bragging!

How to reach Gdansk

Gdansk is well-connected by flights from all the major cities across the world. While the intercity train is quite popular and well used in this part of Poland. Frequent trains ply from Gdansk Glowny to Krakow (584 km in 6 hours) and Warsaw (417 km in 4 hours) while buses are available from the bus station to most of the major European cities.
