Gdansk Highlights Tour with an Old Town walking tour is designed to bring out the best of a medieval townships fascinating past and world changing development into a modern seaside harbor today.
On the way to Gdansk we will enjoy a wonderful stop at the Oliwa cathedral. Celebrated for its famous baroque organ of 5100 pipes and 23 historic altars, the basilica and stunning interior are exquisite.

A city once nearly destroyed, invites us today discover this cradle of freedom so beautifully renovated. The city of Gdansk is home to two of the most important sites in the 20th century history. We will enjoy a photo stop overlooking the island where World War II started, a shipyard where Cold War erupted and pay homage to the rise of freedom at the Solidarity Square.
We will take an enjoyable stroll through the main streets in order to take in the city´s gorgeous architectural waltz. The magnificent Old Town quarterboasts red brick churches and colorful mansions covered with elaborate décor that once used to residents of Polish monarchs. From the Golden Gate to the Green Gate, there are numerous amber and jewelry boutiques to browse after we have seen the facades of Town Hall and the world’s largest brick church - St. Mary´s Basilica (only from outside)**. We will also not miss the symbol of the old quarters, the impressive structure of medieval port crane. Despite a modern facade, the impressive heritage of Gdansk has not left the city.

After walking tour you have some free time for shopping and coffee break in the Old Town before taking the journey back to cruise port.
