One of the most scenic and popular tourist regions in Poland, where a modern and dynamic metropolis is in complete harmony with the cultural and natural heritage. It is located in the northern part of country, on the Baltic Sea, and is connected with over 50 direct flights from 16 countries.
You should probably start your trip by visiting Gdańsk. Remember that Gdańsk is part of a larger urban conglomeration that in Poland is called the “Tricity”. It is the joint name for a vibrant metropolitan area that comprises three cities: Gdańsk, Sopot, and Gdynia. Three different individualities, stories, and faces that combine into one coherent and harmonious whole.
Gdańsk - heart and capital of the Region
The thousand-year-old city located at the mouth of the Motława River has gone down in European and world history with its turbulent past. The city of freedom, solidarity, culture. Here, tradition meets modernity, and art goes out on the streets.
Sopot - a calm city and a fashionable resort
Full of life, with a wide range of spas and wellness facilities. The famous Monte Casino street with its trendy clubs, restaurants, and cafes ends in the longest wooden pier in Europe, reaching far out into the waters of the Bay of Gdańsk.
Gdynia - modern city life
Gdynia is the most recent part of the conglomeration. A city open to innovation and business, while at the same time deeply rooted in maritime tradition as a port of destination for the world’s largest sailboats.
But the Pomorskie region is not only the city break. Breaking away from the city will transport you to an entirely different world – to give one example, the biggest shifting sand dunes in Europe in the Slovinski National Park. You might not believe this, but the largest area of shifting sand dunes in Europe is situated at a distance of only 100 km from Gdańsk. The area is one of the UNESCO-designated world heritage sites. And there is Malbork, also listed by UNESCO as the world’s biggest brick castle - the capital city of the State of the Teutonic Order. In this location, there are as many as seven castles to be found. The castles are only several dozen kilometres apart.
Going deeper into the region, you will arrive at a place commonly known as Kashubian Switzerland. It prides itself on having one of the most picturesque landscapes in Poland. The characteristic post-glacial landscape created a land of green hills and hundreds of blue lakes. The Kashubian people are a colourful ethnic group in Poland who cultivate their own customs, folklore and separate living language.
