Gdansk is a fascinating and unique place to visit, and is very different to most Polish cities. It’s becoming an increasingly popular destination for people to visit, to see the scars of its history and experience its enjoyable modern day atmosphere. Gdansk is believed to be where the Second World War began, and you can still see bombed out barracks and other historic sites like the Westerplatte memorial that mark this significant event. Historically Gdansk is a port city and you’ll still find plenty of active industries along the waterside. The architecture is stunning too, with resplendent churches like St Mary’s casting an impressive figure. In Gdansk you can while away the hours seeing the exhibits housed in the National Museum and lose yourself exploring the cobbled narrowed streets.
Renting holiday apartments in Gdansk
In Gdansk you will be able to pick from a selection of holiday accommodation. Choosing to stay in an apartment in Gdansk gives you your own personal living space, something that you don’t get from a hotel, and allows you to create that home away from home feel. You might want a cosy guest room for a family getaway or maybe a large Gdansk apartment for a bigger group, and HouseTrip has plenty of different holiday rentals for you to choose from.
Where to stay in Gdansk
A really good way of experiencing authentic life in Gdansk is to go for an apartment in the old city. Opt for a self catering apartment in Gdansk and enjoy a home-cooked breakfast in your kitchen before you set out to explore the maze of quaint backstreets. You could even go for something closer to Sopot, a lovely seaside and spa resort right next to Gdansk. Alternatively you might prefer a quiet city centre base, close to the action yet still an oasis of tranquillity, and you’ll be able to find all of these amongst HouseTrip’s selection of Gdansk apartments.
Gdansk with the family
Gdansk has one of the largest zoos in Poland, and you’ll love the look of excitement on your kids’ faces as they get to see all kinds of animals up close and personal. Whilst you’re on your family holiday in Gdansk you’ll want to spend a day at the Aquapark in Sopot, where there’s fun for all the family. The kids will also have a great time swimming in the sea in Sopot and eating ice cream. Head back to your Gdansk apartment at the end of the day and sit down as a family to enjoy an authentic meal you’ve cooked in the kitchen.
