Review
The main tourist areas of Gdansk proved to be very attractive & interesting, a view presumably also held by the vast number of sightseers walking the streets. I was meeting up with my UK cousin & his wife; they were able to fly in direct from Manchester whereas my wife & I had made our way to Warsaw and taken a train trip from there. Big modern station at Warsaw with total cost for the trip just over 900PLN first class return (about AUD340) with a drink and snack included- a relaxing 2.5 hrs through a flat farming landscape. The re-creation of the buildings in the Old Town of Gdansk following the war is quite remarkable and the town was a highlight of an extended trip. Well priced restaurants and bars everywhere. We enjoyed 5 nights there which is insufficient to take in all this destination offers. The WWII museum is probably best taken in small doses - after a couple of hours looking at many of the terrible images we were happy to look for a coffee instead. Taxis are cheap (by Australian standards) but the railway station currently lacks lifts or escalators so that means lugging bags up/down stairs - a major renovation is currently underway to fix this problem. Our evening entertainment was spent sitting in the lounge bar of the Hanza Hotel taking vodka & martinis but I am sure there is much more varied activity elsewhere.
Tips for other travellers
If we were going again I would better prepare by looking at a site like "whattodoingdansk.com"
