- Old town Gdańsk. Full of shops, bars and restaurants. Cobbled streets, beautiful buildings, churches, history and a riverside scene. Put it on your list of places to see in Poland.Written 28 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Highly recommend this to anyone visiting Gdansk. I didn’t know much about Poland/ Gdańsk’s role in the fall of communism before my visit so I learned a lot here. Was quite emotional reading about it all/ hearing about it on the audioguide. A really great museum that doesn’t overwhelm you with information but conveys an important story.Written 19 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A harry potter-vibes kind of place! We visited in the fall, but I am sure the city will be awesome for the summer as wellWritten 25 October 2022
- We went to visit the Cathedral which is connected to the park. It was really pleasure to walk through and around. There are plenty matured trees, small lakes with water lilies and ducks, event big greenhouse and restaurant. And we have been surprised by jumping red squirrel which came to us searching for hidden food and then run away to other tree. We visited it in September and it was a bit drizzling but we liked it a lot. We saw plenty people there so it's really popular with locals - no wonder, I would like to have it near to our place in UK.Written 5 October 2022
- Before we travelled to Gdansk we did search what we can see and this cathedral was on our list. You can take tram No 6 in front of main railway station to Oliwa and the ticket costs 4.80 PLN zl. We walked through wonderful park to the cathedral. Entry was free. It's stunning. Built by Cistercian Order in 12th century first as wooden church, later destroyed by various attacks and fire and rebuilt again. Ceiling over the main altar is very unusual. There are several small altars and prayer sides in the northern and southern aisle which are around the central nave and behind the main altar with wonderful religious pictures and statues. Special chapel with door is for prayers who don't wish to be disturb by the tourists. And the main attraction is the great organ which is connected with wire to two other small organs. The sound when the organ is played is just breath taking. To those who know something about organs this one is probably one of the best - it has 110 real voices (87 are in the main organ) and over 7800 pipes, the largest is 10 metres high and it has 64 combinations of instrument settings. AMAZING! The organ is played every day. I would like to be there in summer when the Polish Baltic Philharmonic organizes two concerts a week. You need to be there and listen to it, the sound brought tears in my eyes.Written 5 October 2022
- Beautiful street not far from Dluga Street. Lots of picturesque buildings and good cafes/ souvenir shops. Definitely have a walk down when in Gdańsk !Written 18 October 2022
- Not fully developed yet, this is the site that Poles consider to be where the first Nazi shells fell. It is worth the visit, better yet bring some written information with you that can help you understand how this tiny unit of Polish soldiers held on for as long as they did against the Nazi war maching.Written 7 July 2022
- amazing views of the entire city all the way out to the coast. anxiety inducing spiral staircase followed by another staircase with a huge drop down the middle, but the panic attack half way up was definitely worth the view. maybe we're just whimps because there were literal children speeding past us on the stairs. the church itself inside was breathtakingly beautiful :'-) the gift shop had really lovely amber jewellery too!Written 7 November 2022
- Great area for walking both on day and in the evening as well, Amber eye view, restaurants, beautiful archtitecture, must see!Written 12 October 2022
- Very nice hotel right on the Main Street Dlugi Targ with lots of pavement cafes and restaurants just outside. Spacious modern rooms with large bed and bathroom with great shower.
We did have a problem at check in as the hotel did not have a record of our room being paid for although we did have a room voucher from TravelRepublic. All the staff are really friendly but special thanks to Karina who took a copy of the voucher and told us not to worry she would contact TR on our behalf and try to sort it out. She rang us on the room phone to say everything was okay and to enjoy our stay. She is a credit to the hotel.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.Written 26 August 2022
- We choose to go there at very warm day it’s on us. The park was a lot bigger then expected. A lot of animals, only thing i thinn was kinda irritaiting that we neded to go from left to right no perfect course to go lika circke. Other than that perfect!Written 3 August 2022
- Beautiful shopping centre in the heart of Gdansk, just a few minutes walk from the old town. The shopping centre itself is clean and well-kept, with a variety of businesses. If you're in the area and looking for something to buy, this is the place to go.Written 23 October 2022
- I went there around 2:30 p.m. to take a ride, and there were no lines. It took about 15 minutes to complete 5 circles. Prices are quite high (35 złoty, with no discount for senior citizens), and after the third circle, it becomes a little monotonous. However, seeing the city from above and from a different perspective is a nice attraction. Also, because the footbridge in front is a lifting bridge and the Ferris wheel is on an island, you may have to wait or go around to get to the other side.Written 23 October 2022
- We decided to visit the beach late afternoon. It's very easy to got here from the city, we took tram No 6 - stop is in front of the main railway station (also tram No 8 is going the same direction). The ticket costs 4.80PLN zl. From the end of the tram at Jelitkowo it's about 5-10 minutes walking. When we were there it was a bit windy but we simply enjoyed being there. It must be very nice in the summer. Going to the beach we passed a restaurant where oldies have outside dancing party. You should visit it.Written 4 October 2022
