Do you have a vacation with the family? A weekend getaway with friends or perhaps a business trip? Regardless of the purpose you are coming to Gdańsk for, it is worth spending a few moments visiting iconic places. Below you will find an outline of some of them.
St. Mary’s Basilica
The co-cathedral basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also known as the “crown of Gdańsk”, is the largest temple in Europe built of brick. St. Mary’s Church was erected in the Gothic style and the two bells from World War II have been preserved inside the cathedral. Every year, it is visited by about 400,000 tourists from all over the world.
Neptune’s Fountain has been the symbol of the city of Gdańsk as far as from 1633. The fountain symbolizes the God of the Sea with a trident in his hand, who, according to urban legends, is to protect and rule over the city. It is one of the most recognizable fountains where tourists from all around the globe would take plenty of pictures.
Mariacka Street bears the title of the most beautiful street in Gdańsk. Nothing surprising! Atmospheric restaurants, romantic alleys, museums and architectural monuments – all of that gives Mariacka Street a unique charm. The porches, which have been preserved since the 14th century, attract history lovers from all around the world.
Once it was used for the production of warships, today it is one of the largest shipyards in Poland. In 2014 it was awarded with the European Heritage Label. It is absolutely breathtaking and also teaches an extraordinary history.
It is worth planning your visit to Gdańsk much in advance so that you can spend the right amount of time on individual attractions. Very often tourists start their Gdańsk adventure at the Rębiechowo/Lech Wałęsa Airport, which is 17 kilometers away from St. Mary’s Basilica. However, if you want to start visiting the Gdańsk Shipyard directly from the airport, you have to cover a distance of 14 kilometers.
