    Gdansk – a brief overview

    Poland’s pre-eminent port city wears its international influences with pride. Its food, architecture and traditions are a heady mix of the cultures which have passed through its streets over hundreds of years. Huge, impressive churches, excellent beer gardens and winding streets make this a city that’s easy to fall in love with.

    Take a river cruise, steep yourself in the area’s fascinating mercantile history and learn how the demise of communism in Poland began right here in the shipyards. Krakow and Warsaw might get the headlines, but Gdansk is every inch one of Poland’s best cities.

    Country information

    Country overview

    One of Europe’s most underrated countries, Poland offers a huge amount for travellers of all stripes, from the wild scenery of its mountainous south, with its great skiing and hiking, to the stunning Old Towns of Cracow, Zamość and Gdańsk, and the wilderness of the Białowieża National Park and the Great Masurian Lakes in the country’s north. Poland’s scenic beauty is as varied as it is extraordinary.

    The Baltic coast has some excellent sandy beaches, as well as the Słowiński National Park with its ethereal forests, bogs and sand dunes. The Cracow-Wielun Upland with its limestone areas, caves and medieval castles is another highlight, while perhaps most beautiful area of all is around the Carpathian Mountains in the far south.

    Geography

    Poland shares borders to the east and northeast with Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, to the south with the Czech Republic and Slovakia and to the west with Germany. To the north lies the Baltic Sea. The Baltic coast provides almost 525km (325 miles) of sandy beaches, bays and steep cliffs; between Gdańsk, and the port city of Szczecin to the west there are many seaside towns offering unpolluted water and some fine beaches, with sunbeds and umbrellas available for hire. These sand and gravel deposits also form the shifting dunes of Słowiński National Park, the sand bars of Hel and the Vistula Lagoon.

    Northern Poland is dominated by lakes, islands and wooded hills joined by many rivers and canals. The Masurian Lake District to the northeast is a patchwork of lakes and forests with Lake Hańcza, the deepest lake in Poland, located here. The longest river, the 1,090km (675 mile) Vistula, or Wisła, rises in the Tatra mountains and empties into the Baltic, cutting a wide valley between the capital, Warsaw in the heart of the country, to Gdańsk on the coast.

    The rest of the country rises slowly to the Sudety mountains, which run along the border with the Czech Republic, and the Tatra mountains, which separate Poland from Slovakia.

    To the west, the River Oder, with Szczecin at its mouth, forms the northwest border with Germany.

    Poland counts almost two dozen national parks, covering an area of 3,200 sq km (1,235 sq miles), and including the oldest, Białowieża National Park, east of Warsaw on the border with Belarus, and one of the largest, Bieszczady National Park, part of the Carpathian mountain range. These parks are home to European bison (the largest mammal in Europe), brown bears, lynx, wolves and even some wild horses. And Białowieża contains a fragment of the forest that once covered Europe in prehistoric times, with some oaks dating back half a millennium. Polish forests are largely pine though, accounting for two-thirds of the total.

    Climate & best time to visit Poland

    Poland has a temperate climate, with warm summers and winters that are not extremely cold. However, rain showers occur all year round, particularly to the west of the Carpathian Mountains and in the Masurian and Pomeranian Lake Districts. The far east of Poland is the exception: The climate here is continental, with hot summers and cold, snowy winters – ideal conditions for winter sports enthusiasts!

    The best time to visit the High Tatras and Karkonosze Mountains is January and February, when the high altitudes around Zakopane and the Śnieżka peak (1,602 meters) offer excellent snow conditions.

    Outdoor sports enthusiasts enjoy the moderate temperatures in May, June, and September.

    City trips – to Gdańsk, Wrocław or Krakow, for example – are recommendable year-round. The vacation spots in the mountains and near the lakes tend to be booked up during the Polish summer holidays (from the last Friday in June until the last Friday in August), while the hotels in the cities are more affordable during this period.

    Mobile telephony and Internet
    Since June 2017, EU citizens traveling within the EU, and also in Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein have been able to use their cell phones and surf the Net without incurring any extra charges: In other words, customers pay the same price for phone calls, text messages and data volume as they do at home. Restrictions do apply to the constant use of SIM cards abroad, however, and caps may be set on data packages. For full details, contact your mobile telephony provider in your country. Travelers using a SIM card from a non-EU state do not benefit from the new arrangement.

    Free Internet access via Wi-Fi is possible in many busy tourist spots. When using public Wi-Fi networks, it is a wise precaution to ensure encryption of all passwords, credit card details and banking TANs entered. Use of a VPN app or security software to check the safety of a hotspot is recommended.

    Shopping in Gdansk

    Key Areas

    There are major malls along the city’s ring road, so if you’ve hired a car, you can easily drive out for a day of shopping. There’s an out-of-town discount park, the Fashion House Outlet Centre (Przywidzka 8), as well as some excellent shopping to be had in the Old Town. The latter is ideal if you’re not too keen on travelling out to spend up.

    Markets

    Hala Targowa (Plac Dominkański 1) is a 19th-century covered market which was once the city’s key shopping destination.

    Alas, malls have seen it become a shell of its former self, but it’s still worth a visit to pick up bargains and get a glimpse of old Gdansk. Zielony Rynek (Czerwony Dwór 33) is an open-air market that is also definitely fun to check out.

    Shopping Centres

    Galeria Baltycka (Aleja Grunwaldzka 141) is the hottest mall in town. Just outside of the centre, it plays home to big brands like Carrefour, H&M and Zara. Madison Gallery (Rajska 10), in the heart of Gdansk, is now a major destination in its own right.

    Traveller etiquette

    Social conventions

    There are major differences between city life and life in the countryside. Rural communities are often more religious (Roman Catholic), and their lifestyles are much more traditional. People greet one another with a handshake; women will often receive a kiss on the hand.

    The standard pleasantries are also expected, and hosts always appreciate a bouquet of flowers.

    Clothing should be modest, but can also be casual. More elegant clothing is expected at good restaurants or for special occasions.

    Smoking is prohibited in some public buildings, such as train stations.

    Photography

    Photography is not permitted at military facilities, industrial buildings or important junctions marked with a camera with a line through it.

    Tipping

    Tips are not included in restaurant prices; a 10-15 percent tip is customary.
