Gdańsk

The impressive urban architecture recalls the epoch of the Hanseatic splendour. Every year the lovely narrow streets, the magnificent town house facades, the spectacular Royal Road connecting the Golden Gate with the Green Gate, the mediaeval Crane and the granaries attract countless tourists. Cafés situated in historic town houses as well as pubs in the original cellars invite you to stop and have rest over a pint of traditional Gdańsk beer which you can buy for about PLN 5.
