Gdansk is the largest and southernmost of a string of three Baltic resorts known as the "Trójmiasto" (Tri-Cities). It is a beautiful seaside town, with a lovingly restored Old Town. The city is famous worldwide as the birthplace of the Solidarity movement which played a major role in bringing an end to communist rule in Poland. There are not many places in the world where the history of our time seems more immediate. Walking along the medieval docks and city is an experience in itself; however any walk should lead you to the exceptional Solidarity museum at the former Lenin shipyards. The museum has a fantastic interactive exhibit.
Much of Warsaw's historic center was painstakingly recreated and today's Old Town buildings are closer to the original architecture than they were ever before. It has a wealth of shops and restaurants to potter around in. The city also boasts many green spaces, with leafy parks where rowing boats cruise past outdoor cafés, during the summer, and free classical concerts attract. In addition, the Former Jewish ghetto is a stark reminder of the unforgiving hand of history. The nightlife scene is equally surprising, with the city's increasingly well-dressed youth flocking to the countless bars and clubs of a city that now hums after dark.
Kraków is one of the oldest cities of Poland and one of the cultural and artistic centres of the country, the former seat of the Polish kings and national capital. Among the hightlights of the city are: the Royal Castle and Cathedral on Wawel Hill; the medieval Old Town with its beautiful Market Square; the 14th-century buildings of the Jagiellonian University; as well as Kazimierz, the historical centre of Kraków's Jewish religious and social life. Kraków hosts many annual artistic events.
The trip to Poland ( Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk ) was excellent. The hotels, transportation and activities met our expectations. We will definetly use Eurpean Destinations for our next trip.
