To get a real understanding for it, and to be able to buy unique amber souvenirs, go on a tour of the Amber Museum in front of Gdańsk’s Golden Gate.
The European Solidarity Centre is a huge building down by Gdańsk’s dockyard area just behind the Solidarity Monument.
It’s a massive arena that seats 43,615 and was beautifully designed to represent the Amber trade in the Pomerania region.
Down by the riverfront in Gdańsk at the National Maritime Museum, you will notice a black building sticking out among the others. It is no longer functioning, but worth checking out and reading the information boards inside the lower gates.
Nearly all the outer walls of the school and apartment buildings in this community have large, well-designed paintings on them. Zaspa, which is also where Lech Wałęsa hails from, is still an ‘off the beaten path’ tourist attraction, so make sure to visit before it gets overrun.
Gdańsk and the Pomerania Province have an extensive history in amber.
A trip out to the Westerplatte peninsula will fulfil the interests of all history buffs, as it was here that the Germans launched their attacks on September 1, 1939.
The city has continued to grow year-on-year with new museums, cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions opening all the time.
You’ll want to keep up-to-date with the best of what the city has to offer.
There are a few must-see sights here all in a small area.
First, the memorial itself, then the huge museum, and thirdly, the smaller building to the right (called Sala BHP).
