Things to See in Gdansk: 4 Most Important Places
Gdansk is a city located in the north of Poland and due to its outstanding oceanfront location it has a large port that has made it one of the main naval trade centers in this country.
During World War II this city was occupied by armies of neighbouring nations such as Germany and Russia, although it later became part of the Republic of Poland.
As an interesting fact we can highlight that the city before the war had a predominantly German population and due to the events of the war this population escaped or they were expelled to repopulate the territory with Polish inhabitants.
Another aspect to highlight is the interest of a large part of the population in the dissemination of sports such as football and participation in important international events such as Euro 2012.
Walk along the Royal Route of the City
This route is famous because it allows us to get to know at a first glance part of the historical wealth and the most important monuments of Gdansk. This route begins in Dluga Street that allows us to travel through the city center until we reach the pier. Along the way we will find important monuments such as the Alta Gate and the Golden Gate that stand out for their inscriptions and emblems, the Town Hall Building which is known for its high tower and the Neptune Fountain which is very visited by tourists.
Tour the Pier and Visit the Monuments
On the pier walk you will find houses of former naval traders that have been converted into a museum so that visitors can see the various tools and artifacts used by these traders to do their business and transactions.
Other interesting places you can visit on the pier walk are the Archaeological Museum, the Door of Santa Maria and the Basilica of Our Lady which has a large tower from where you can have a beautiful panoramic view of the city. Other equally interesting places are the Old Crane building and the Maritime Museum.
Admire the Old City
Although the name of this place gives us an idea of a place with old buildings it actually has both modern buildings and old buildings that have been rebuilt to retain their original appearance. Here you can find the monument of the defenders of the post office that reminds visitors of a historical event happened in this place where the workers of this place defended themselves against the attacks of the Nazis.
Discover the Gdansk Shipyard
This shipyard is well known because it was one of the first places in Poland where workers of this yard began strikes and protests against communism that eventually spread in other regions of the country with the consequent decline of communism in this region.
