While we love this it here at any time of the year, we have to admit that this is the best time to live here. When the sun is out, the temperatures are warm and the three cities of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia, are full of colour, it really is a wonderful place to be. You have plenty of choice as to where to spend your time and your money and we hope we can give you some tips as to where to do both.
The local beer brewing industry has blossomed in the last couple of years thanks to the work of some talented local, brewers and a surge in demand for good quality beer. We look at the history of the local brewing industry and highlight where you can buy locally produced beer. We can also boast an extended ‘What’s On’ section which is merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of what you can entertain yourselves with while you are here. For more options take a look at the What’s On section of our website.
We've already launched a brand new app this year (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 (if the government don't decide to change it. August 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).
Finally the cover of the current print guide (see below) shows a statue of local painter Antoni Suchanek (1901-1982) looking out on his favourite seascape next to the pier in Gdynia Orłowo. Less crowded than nearby Sopot, Orłowo is well worth a visit.
Enjoy your stay and, if that’s your thing, follow our blog. You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, 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.
