While Gdansk, Poland may not currently be the first place that rolls off the tongue when deciding on your next mini-break, Euro 2012 may just change that. Playing host to several big matches, including a quarter final, Gdansk is ready to present itself to the masses as a great mini-break destination.
Also known as the Tri-City, Gdansk combines Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia to become three cities in one. Each area is distinct, and worthy of exploration in its own right.
Gdansk’s picture perfect old town is the place to find cobbled streets, gothic churches and the medieval harbour. Venture into Sopot and you’ll find a stunning stretch of sandy beach that becomes a lively hot spot in summer. Gyndia is the youngest, liveliest city, that’s forging its way forward as a place to see and be seen.
Those in town for the football will find some of the city’s best dining and drinking spots in modern Gdynia, whereas Gdansk maintains a more traditional feel and boasts some amazing places to find old school Polish food.
Prices are also reasonable, so you’re sure to enjoy more for less when you try Gdansk for size.
Football fan or not, Gdansk has much to offer, and this pretty, ‘three for the price of one’, city is ready to give popular Warsaw a run for its money!
