Gdansk Travel Guide: Sightseeing, Hotel, Restaurant & Shopping Highlights (Paperback)
Gdansk's shipyards and maritime tradition have made it the busiest Baltic port since medieval times. From the resulting prosperity grew today's fascinating northern Polish city with its elaborate architecture and Old World charm. Formerly known as Danzig, Gdansk is of great historic significance. The start of World War Two took place in Gdansk, as did Lech Walesa's dissent against communism which ultimately resulted in the end of the Soviet rule in the 1980s.
