Discover the architecture and history of Gdańsk on a walking tour that covers the same route that was walked for centuries by the kings of Poland. Dive into the local culture which has Polish, Dutch, and German influences. Meet your guide at the city's Golden Gate and make your way to the colorful merchant townhouses that were destroyed by the war, but painstakingly rebuilt. Hear about how merchants made the town the richest city on the Baltic Sea. Walk through Long Market and see the Neptune fountain. Admire St. Mary's Basilica's Gothic brickwork and view the Zuraw treadwheel crane in the harbor which is the largest of its kind in the world and a symbol of the city. See the city's rivers and canals as you walk. Travel back in time as your guide tells you about how WWII started in the city and how the Solidarity movement heralded the fall of communism in the Eastern block.
