Gdansk, your new favourite city!

I briefly mentioned Gdansk in my 2015 travel highlights, but I feel that this unique and beautiful city deserves it’s own post.

I didn’t have any prior knowledge of Gdansk before visiting, so I didn’t have any expectations but I left with a new favourite city!

It is truly a magical place, with lots of picturesque buildings and streets. The old town has lots of hidden museums, quaint little shops and cosy cafes. I could wander around these streets for hours.

We stayed in an apartment that was located on the main street of Gdansk. This was my first time using Airbnb and I was not disappointed. For a very affordable price we had a wonderful apartment in the heart of the city. If you are interested, you can find the details of where I stayed here.

We spent our days wandering the cobbled streets and taking in the enchanted atmosphere of the old city, that feels like you are somehow transported to a different time. Not forgetting to stop off in some independent little cafes to warm up after being outside in the winter time.

We decided to take a spontaneous trip to Sopot, I guess it could be a controversial choice to visit the seaside during winter, but we had a great time.

After a short train journey from Gdansk, we stepped out into a beautiful crisp day, blue skies and a sea breeze. We wandered through the town until we reached the Baltic sea and strolled along the beach.

We also stopped to see Krzywy Domek – the crooked house! This has to be one of the strangest buildings ever. It was designed by a Polish illustrator and is now home to a little shopping center.

Whatever your travel tastes, I wholeheartedly recommend visiting Gdansk, you won’t be disappointed.
