Looking for information on arriving in and getting around Gdansk and the Tri-City? Take a look at our handy video guide:
Arriving by planeThe Tri-city can boast an impressive 2-terminal airport, co-owned by the three cities, around which you’ll see lots of new industry sprouting. The area was open countryside not very long ago and the expansion of the airport, the accompanying business and the ongoing construction of a new railway link to Gdansk and Gdynia are a sure sign of a region on the up. It also makes Gdynia’s attempts in recent years to build its own airport even more questionable.
Arriving by trainThe city is connected to all major cities in Poland with travel times subject to both delay and improvement as a major investment programme continues.
Arriving by ferryFerries sail to the Tri-city from two ports in Sweden. Polferries sail to Gdansk from Nynashamm while Stena Line sail to Gdynia from Karlskrona.
Arriving by carThere are three main routes into the Tri-city: the E28 from the west via Gdynia; the E77 from the south-east which enters the city via Gdansk and the A1 highway from the south.
Parking is available once you arrive in Gdańsk but remember that the old town area is permit parking only and you will be fined by the city police for driving into the old town without a pass. Watch out for the signs marking the start of the permit parking zone. You will have to use street parking which is paid for (3zł for the first hour) and you will need to buy a ticket at the street machine.
