Let's Gdańsk!

Let's Gdańsk!The Motlawa river regularly freezes over in winter
As you may be experiencing first hand, winters in Poland can be pretty harsh and it’s not for no reason that extremely cold weather is often referred to as ‘Baltic’. But should that be the case, and there’s no guarantee that it will be following what has to have been one of the mildest autumns on record, that doesn’t mean you have all the excuse you need to camp yourself in your favourite bar and guzzle Grzane Wino or Piwo until the sun reappears.

We’ve compiled a selection of ideas of what to do, both inside and out in GdanskSopot and Gdynia and given you a list of places where you can ski, drive a go-cart or pack a bunch of sausages and be taken out into the countryside on the back of a horse drawn sledge to warm yourself with the local spirit while grilling your lunch.

There’s also a pointer to an area of Gdansk old town that has quietly gathered a collection of the best places to eat in the Tri-city plus lots of other independently checked and written info to help you make the most of your stay here.

We also look at why standards of service appear to be falling in many restaurants, bars and other places supposedly geared to attracting the foreign guest. We don’t just want to complain though – we’d like your help identifying examples of great service so that we can make offer some cash prizes to those servers who are doing a good job – and hopefully encourage others and more importantly their employers to try to raise standards. If you are lucky enough to be treated very well, let us know who by and where to the email address below. And we also look at one group who are only too eager to help you and that’s the group of young women handing out strip club flyers in the heart of the city each evening. Isn’t that just making the city look tacky?
