A walk through Gdańsk

Hello everybody,
I would like to show you some photos of Gdańsk - city in north Poland. It's one of the biggest Polish cities, Poland's principal seaport as well as the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. It's one of the cities you have to see in Europe. I live very close (in Gdynia) and I study in Gdańsk so these are not photos from one walk through Gdańsk but from many different days, different parts of the year... Now I will show only a city centre which is very interesting and beautiful with many historical buildings. There are also another interesting parts of the city and I hope I will show them somwhere in the future. So now let's see Gdańsk's Main Town. I hope you like it!

The first time I saw Gdansk was in the movie the Tin Drum and then I visited in 94 anmd was amazed even though 50 years of communism left it dirty and in rough shape. Looks so much cleaner. A friend of mine in New York actually moved to Gdynia, he love dthe TriCity so much.
Has construction on the Maritime Musuem and Shakespearean Theatre begun. These are great investments that will bring so many more tourists.
