The latest print issue of Gdansk In Your Pocket is the 50th that we have published. With three print issues annually it represents a lot of years and this autumn will see the 17th anniversary of work commencing on the first issue which came out in the spring of 2000. That issue was put together by a small but incredibly enthusiastic volunteer force featuring an Irishwoman, Englishman and a handful of Poles who were all convinced that if the world just knew a little more about Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia and the surrounding area, that they would visit and see for themselves what a wonderful place it was. You can read the foreword to our 50th issue here.
17 years on, the three cities of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia, are full of colour and 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.
There's more than ever to read and we're already working on the next series of features which we hope will draw your attention to parts of the city that warrant your attention. In the meantime take a look at some of the features below including the story of Saint Bridget's amber altar or the history of the local brewing industry which highlights where you can buy locally produced beer.
