Day 1
Gdansk | Gdansk

This morning your guide will meet you just outside your cruise ship for the journey to Gdansk (some ships dock in Gdansk, others dock in Gdynia, about 45 minutes away).

Today you will start with a visit to the European Solidarity Center. The permanent exhibition is dedicated to the Solidarity Movement and the opposition, which led to the overthrow of communism in Central and Eastern Europe. It’s like a walking timeline of contemporary history in Gdansk and really all of Europe. It’s afascinating look into this turbulent time leading up to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Afterward head to Oliwa. This is a complex of Cistercian abbey buildings and the highlight is the cathedral. It’sbuilt in the Romanesque and Gothic styles and is best known for its organ, which includes moving angels, stars and the sun. Today there is an organ concert at noon and you can attend.

Continue on to Gdansk where the rest of your touring is on foot. Your guide will take you on Gdansk’s Royal Route. Around every corner of Old Town you’ll find an important building or historic monument and yourguide will show you the most important of them. You can also step inside St. Mary’s Church, founded in 1343,and one of the largest churches in Europe and is best known for its extraordinary Gothic sculpture. At the picturesque Motlawa River bank you will see the massive, 15th century Old Crane, which is now a museum containing a wooden elevator and granaries used at the port during its heyday.
