How Far from?
Once a German city, Gdansk only became part of Poland in 1919, however it was still known by its German name, Danzig, until after the Second World War.

There is plenty to see and do in Gdansk, one of the most economically important cities in Poland. Amongst them are the historical buildings that line the Ulica Dluga (Long Street), the gates leading to the Royal Way, the Torture House, Prison Tower, and the Neptune Fountain.

Being Polandís largest seaport means that Gdansk has a longstanding history of ship-building. A museum-ship called the SS Soldek is situated on the river Motlawa and provides an insight into the cityís shipping heritage.
