Top Attractions in Gdansk


Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Gdansk

Last month, I visited the city of Gdansk for the first time and was really captivated by it´s beauty. The Basilica of St. Mary I believe is the largest brick church in the world, the old Town Hall (now the Gdansk Museum) was really worth a visit and gave me the chance to see the city from the viewing deck with really nice views and the fact that the St. Dominic´s Fair was also being celebrated during our visit just made the city more exciting. There were lots of Motlawa River cruise to take, some offering sunset cruise but due to limited time, we just took the one in the morning. Needless to say, the restaurants were full packed and all three restaurants we visited offered tasty and satisfying meals. If you are traveling to Gdansk, here are some of my travel tips and as always, feel free to comment on the section below with your own travel tips.
