Gdansk is great, I've been 3 times and still plan to go back as I still haven't seen everything I wanted some. Places I have seen and recommend: artus court, free walking tours, walk along waterfront, town hall, war museum, the amber altar at St Brigids church, Roman cellar and ossuary, boat trips to Hel, Sopot (beach, lighthouse, crooked house and archaeological skansen), the world's biggest castle at Malbork a quick train ride from Gdansk (it is big enough that you can easily allocate a full day to spend there, I went for about 4 hours and had to rush through and skip parts of it).

Gdansk is a lovely place to visit and there are plenty things to do. Here are some must see/do: 1. Old Town (Main City) - you can easily spend whole day wondering around. There are many museums you could visit to learn a bit more about town‘s history (Uphagen’s House, Museum of Gdansk, Artus Court all located on Long Market/Dluga Street; Basilica of St Mary and Mariacka Street; the Crane and Dlugie Pobrzeze; Amber Museum) 2. Wyspa Spichrzów. 3. Ołowianka and the view from Amber Sky. 4. Museum of the Second War. It's really worth it. 5. Guided Kayaking on the river Motlawa. 6. Pierogarnia Mandu Restaurant and famous polish “pierogi” (dumplings). Don’t go to late as there may be long queues! It's the best place to try dumplings! 7. Try delicious Polish craft beers in places like: Pub Red Light, Pijalnia Wódki I Piwa, Winston Bar) 8. Visit Sopot and the beach. Try delicious fish and chips or waffles!

Gdansk is one of the most beautiful cities, with amazing restaurants. I would recommend staying in a hostel, they usually have lots of solo travellers, and they are quite nice. You should definitely try polish food: pierogi, the best place to have them is "Pierogarnia Mandu Gdańsk Śródmieście", super popular spot. For beer and some fun try - Ulica Elektryków, this is super cool industrial spot with food trucks, music and good beer. Consider spending one night in Sopot - is only 15 min away from Gdansk, but this is more like a holiday destination, with beautiful beach and lots of foreign people so English should not be a problem there. In Sopot my favorite food is - Śliwka w Kompot. '3city' - because this is how we call Gdansk , Gdynia and Sopot is very safe and fun, and most of the people in bars and restaurants do speak English.

Gdansk is for sure one of the most amazing spots in Poland. Here is my list of things to do: Old Town (Main City) - it’s really beautiful spot with some interesting things too see like Artus Court, Basilica of St Mary (you can get to the tower and see a great view of the old city) and Mariacka Street (cool street with nice bars/ restaurants), the Crane and Dlugie Pobrzeze, Amber Museum, the Neptun Monument Museum of the Second War - it’s really big and worth visiting, very interactive, you can spend few hours there European Center of Solidarity - quite new spot, to learn about the historical events of the Polish opposition to communist rule Wyspa Spichrzów - You can take a walk near Motlawa river and see the city a bit more (all of those things in the Main Old town and the river are super close to each other) You definitely need to go to the beach - Jelitkowo, Stogi, Brzezno -you can get there by tram from the center - Sopot - you can visit it by the Tricity Train (SKM) or take a nice beach walk from Brzezno beach to the Pier in Sopot (around 1h/1h 20m) Malbork castle - it is one of the largest castles in the world. It’s just a short train ride away from Gdansk
