Tour description

Discover Gdansk! is an informative sightseeing route emphasizing history, architecture, and culture. 

We start our tour from the Green Bridge, in the very heart of the old port. 
It is where red brick gates, terraced homes, and cobblestone streets provide a backdrop for tales about the times long gone. 

Our town, Gdansk was a witness to times of grand prosperity and great misery, times of destruction and reconstruction, blazing fires and fireworks on display, times of tolerance, and times of persecution, hope, and despair. That being the case, people start to wonder...

  • How many states attempted to control it? 
  • Who lived in Gdańsk throughout the centuries? 
  • How come we had the Crusaders here?
  • Why are we crazy about carillions?
  • How come there are so many museums here?

Not only you guys can expect answers to such salient questions but we will try to sprinkle some entertainment into the tales.

Do yourself a favor and join the tour in the morning (11 AM ) or in the afternoon (2 PM). 

When on the Green Bridge, look for an individual with a red Doppler umbrella.

Lovely friendly tour guide who showed us around Gdansk even in the cold and snow. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learnt so much information from the guru. Thank you for letting us leave few minutes earlier to catch our flight. We appreciate it
