Due to its very good strategic location at the Baltic Sea, Gdansk has been an important settlement at least since the 10th century A.D.. With about half a million inhabitants, the former member of the Hanseatic League is a very popular destination for tourists when visiting Poland. Especially the Old Town district is a real beauty. During a trip in summer 2021, my wife and I explored the capital of Pomerania. In this posting, I take you on a walk through Gdansk’s historic district in one of my Pictured Stories.
Gdansk – Location & Transport
Gdansk is located in Northern Poland as part of the Tri-City region (including Gdynia and Sopot). Many tourists arrive in the city by the nice, neat airport (GDN). However, there are also some cruise ships. The E75 motorway links Gdansk to Southern Polish cities and Warsaw. Alternatively, the city is also linked to the Express InterCity Premium (EIP) network of Polish Rail PKP.
