The City of Gdansk

The City of Gdansk is located in the Northern Poland at the Baltic Sea, which was founded in 997. Within a short period, after its settlement, it was the richest and most populated city in the Republic of Poland (Poland in the past). Over a very long existence, Gdansk was shaped under the influence of many different cultures, especially German, Polish and Jewish. Gdansk is the place where began the most terrible conflict in human history (World War II) and it was the beginning of the fall of Communism in Central Europe here. Currently, the population of the city is less than 500 000, together with the cities located next (Gdynia and Sopot) creates Tricity. Gdansk is primarily known from amber, where the biggest deposits are in the world (the Bay of Gdansk). There are organized here the world’s largest international trade fair of amber and amber products. Architectural monuments and cultural institutions are also a trademark of Gdansk, worth seeing. Moreover, good connections to the city (especially the air) with other European cities, attracts an increasing number of tourists every year, who wants personally experience the attractiveness of this place.
