Gdansk is a thriving port city on the Baltic coast of Poland, and it’s a little different from any other Polish city. A long history of international trade has brought a variety of influences in every aspect of life, from architecture to cuisine, making Gdansk a truly interesting place to explore. Visitors may want to start by walking the Royal Way, the main street through the city’s Old Town. Along the way, you’ll see some of Gdansk’s famous sights like the Golden Gate, Prison Tower, and the Neptune fountain. Stop in one of the great restaurants in Dlugi Targ (Long Market) for some authentic Polish pierogi, then hop over to St. Mary’s Church to snap photos of the largest brick church in the world.

The biggest event of the year in Gdansk is St. Dominic’s Fair, a long-standing traditional festival dating back to the year 1260 AD. The Fair starts on the last Saturday of July and lasts three weeks, and boasts massive markets, parades, concerts, street theater, and sports events. Each year, this raucous fair attracts 5 million people, transforming Gdansk into one huge party.
