In the harbour and merchant city of Gdansk, residents can look back on a 1000 year history. Just as in Warsaw, the conservation workers in this city of 500,000 performed wonders in their reconstruction work. From the 82 m high tower on the 14th century city hall you will enjoy a fantastic view of the city and the Bay of Gdansk. One of the city's most beautiful spaces is the Long Market with the Neptune Fountain. The city's recent history includes the Solidarity (Solidarnosc) movement. At the entrance gate to the shipyard stands a 40 m monument to the victims of the workers' rebellion in 1970. The Vistula Spit with its long, sandy beaches is a favourite destination for day trips and sunbathing. From Gdansk you can take a day trip by hydrofoil boat to the area around Kaliningrad (Königsberg). It's also not very far to Fronbork (Frauenburg) or the medieval Malbork (Marienburg).
