Gdansk

Many Norwegians probably have a completely wrong impression of Gdansk, without even having been there. True, Gdansk is an industrial port city in a former eastern bloc country, but the city has an incredible amount to offer.

It is a real pleasure to stroll around the streets of downtown Gdansk and admire the magnificent historic buildings that have been painstakingly restored after being leveled with the earth during World War II.

Gdansk’s port area has today become a tourist magnet with its outdoor restaurants and sidewalk cafes.

Just outside the city you will find miles of sandy beaches facing the Baltic Sea. There are many shopping opportunities, and the prices for local products and spa treatments will only make you smile.

It was in Gdansk Lech Walesa and Solidarity became the beginning of the end for communism in Poland in December 1980.

With direct flights from various Norwegian airports, getting to Gdansk is easy, fast and affordable. Leave all the old prejudices about endless queues of food vouchers, underpaid strawberry pickers and gray concrete blocks and get to one of the most fascinating areas of Eastern Europe.
