Gdansk

Let's Gdańsk!

As we wonder what's happened to the winters in these parts and head into spring 2016, there's a lot to be look forward to.

2015 was an extremely positive year for the three cities of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia, with as many foreign visitors as we can remember in the 15 years we have been here; new places to visit – the biggest opening unquestionably being the Museum of Emigration in Gdynia and a steady improvement in the choice and quality of places to eat. While service still by and large sucks, the food coming out of the kitchens keeps getting better, regardless whether it’s simple snack food or the height of fine dining.

Best of all for the visitor is that prices remain extremely competitive if compared to most of Europe. It’s an over-used line by tourism boards and marketing agencies (of which we are neither), but there really has not been a better time to visit.

2016 promises to get even better. We've already launched a brand new app (available on IOS and Android now), while the opening of The Museum of World War II is the key event in the local tourism market for 2016. We are also rolling out a new events section in stages which will dramatically improve our events info whilst 2016 also sees the celebration of the 50th issue of the print issue of Gdansk In Your Pocket (not bad when you consider it comes out 3 times a year).  

Enjoy your stay and, if that’s your thing, follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagramVine, and Tumblr. Of course we're always glad to hear your thoughts on the city, the guide and whatever else on poland (at) inyourpocket.com.
