Gdansk

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Just back from a lovely trip to the Polish city of Gdansk. The birth place of World War II, Gdansk is certainly an interesting city. It has started to shed its image of a rundown shipyard, instead filling up with bars, restaurants and shops. However, as work is still on going I did feel the old town small, ending up in the same areas time and time again.

Venture outside the centre and you have the beach resort of Sopot and Gydnia spread along the beautiful coastline. Both are within 30 minutes reach and definitely worth the visit.

Finally, I have to give a mention to Wizz air, the Hungarian low cost airline. With a booking experience similar to Ryanair, I was not expected much from them. However, with a larger cleaner plane and friendly staff I was pleasantly surprised and would have no problems using them again.
