Gdańsk – 1000 years of history
We would be delighted for you to join us on our tour to this historic city which is the most important cultural, industrial and academic centre of Northern Poland.Gdańsk, whose history stretches back more than 1,000 years and which is without doubt the most charming city in northern Poland and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It offers an extraordinary abundance of historic buildings and monuments as well as the specific atmosphere of a port city and memorable lessons from history. Gdańsk was particularly important witness to the turbulent events of the 20th century. It was here that the Second World War began and it is also the birthplace of Solidarity which brought about the downfall of communism in Europe. Gdansk is a city that continually revives the spirit of independence.
