Welcome to one of the oldest Baltic cities
Gdansk is one of the oldest Baltic cities with a thousand year old traditions of European culture and maritime history. Gdansk owes its fortune to its seaside location. Ships from all parts of Europe are greeted by the historical port of Gdansk. The trade routes from the east to the west and from the north to the south of Europe crossed here. Discover and experience the lovingly restored specimens of the historic port: the tall granaries, the majestic structure of the Mediaeval Crane squeezing its food in between the narrow facades of the neighbouring town – houses, the secret-whispering shadows of the waterfacing gateways – this is the panorama which unwinds itself to the eyes of the sailors entering the millenniumold Gdansk. This is an exceptional place where sailors come back again and again. Sail then: into the winds and Gdansk.
Step into maritime history at the Polish Maritime Museum in Gdansk – a national institution of culture, the largest maritime museum in Poland and one of the biggest in Europe.
