About Gdańsk:

Gdańsk holds a special place in the hearts and minds of many Irish football fans. In the summer of 2012, thousands of Trappatoni’s army descended on the port city with inflatable hammers, leprechaun hats and an appetite for good times. The visitors endeared themselves to the locals and despite the poor results on the playing pitch, a bond between peoples was formed. Gdańsk was the birthplace of the Solidarity movement, which played a key role in the collapse of Communist Poland. Today, the Baltic city is a tourist town with pretty cobbled streets and ornate brightly coloured buildings. Just five minutes by train will bring you to the sandy beaches and impressive pier of Sopot while the city itself now boasts a host of new buildings, museums and restaurants. 

Things to do here:

Artus Court Museum Museum

Dating from the 14th century, the house is decorated spectacularly and has been completely restored.

European Solidarity Movement Cultural

This exhibition tells the story of the Gdańsk shipyard workers in the struggle against the communist regime.

Oliwa Cathedral Historical

The cathedral has a magnificent baroque altar and is located next to the Oliwa park gardens.

Hel Peninsula Scenic

Easily accessible by train or boat from Gdańsk or Sopot, the Hel Peninsula offers unspoiled beaches and beautiful scenery.
