Gdańsk (Danzig) is a beautiful bead close to the Baltic, on the far northern east of Poland, only 160 km away from Kaliningrad (Königsberg). It has a wonderful old city center with small streets and narrow houses, fantastic gates (like the Brama Zielona) and churches. And lots of history to discover!
Looking for a hotel in Gdańsk, Poland close to the city center? On an island between the old (stara) and new (nowa) arms of river Motława you can find the Villa Pica Paca. I associated the name much more with South America but in fact it is a nice flatlet hotel within a typical house of Gdańsk.
The Westerplatte is a peninsula close to Gdańsk, Poland. It is well known because it is the place where World War II started. By that time Gdańsk (“Danzig”) was an independent state with mostly German residents enclosed by Poland and the exclave Königsberg/Allenstein of the Deutsches Reich.
