Gdansk tourist information.
Gdańsk is a Polish city on the Baltic coast, the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland’s principal seaport and the centre of the country’s fourth-largest metropolitan area. Its fortunes being long shaped by wealthy merchants who came to buy and sell goods, Gdansk emanates charm and beauty in abundance, with colourful cafés, amber shops and intriguing museums lining the streets of the Main Town. The city’s history is complex, with periods of Polish rule, periods of Prusso-German rule, and periods of autonomy or self-rule as a “free city”. Gdansk is certainly not a town without its stories and the tumultuous events of the past have left deep scars, indeed. However, with visitors flocking in greater numbers to see the appeal of the beautiful Gdansk, the destruction of various wars is certainly easing, even though they will never be forgotten.
