Gdansk - Maritime Capital of Poland

Gdańsk is the Polish maritime capital with the population nearing half a million.It is the part of TriCity(Gdansk Gdynia Sopot) and is the third biggest aglomeration in Poland (nearly 1mln people) It is a large centre of economic life, science, culture, and a popular tourist destination. Lying on the Bay of Gdańsk and the southern cost of the Baltic Sea the city is a thousand years old. With its Hanseatic tradition, it has for ages played a major role in the commercial relationships between Northern and Western Europe on the one hand, and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe on the other hand. Today, Gdańsk is the capital of the Pomeranian province and an important administration centre.

The city was totaly destroyed during the war,and Poles managed to rebuild this to its previous splendor, it was the biggest reconstruction of historical city ever taken all over the world
So what do you think?

Nothing strange- Gdansk is sometimes called 'a small Amsterdam', and not just because it sits on several canals. The old architecture of Gdansk is very much reminiscent of Dutch cities. It was very cosmopolitan city attracting settlers from Scotland, the Low Countries and other parts of Europe. (espcially during Hanseatic times XV-XVI age) The skill of drainage, for example, was brought to Poland by Dutch colonists, who reclaimed land lying in the Zulawy Wislane Vistula lowlands.

Great thread, beautiful pics. This city is absolutely on my "to do" list. And indeed, in some ways it reminds me of Amsterdam; the facades of the houses is pretty much the same, only in Gdansk they're more colourfull.

Gdansk is great! I don't mind that it may be called little Amsterdam, cuz then Amsterdam is big Gdansk Of course Gdansk reminds one of Amsterdam as earlier been stated, manu different people from different parts of Europe came to Gdansk. So the Dutch who came gave their touch to the city of Gdansk I love it!

That's how I knew it before.

I don't get it. As far as I'm concerned the capital of Pommerania was always Szczecin. Gdansk used to be an independent city.At least, that's how books say.
