Gdansk, Sopot, and Gdynia (called the Tricity) situated on the Polish Baltic coast, Gdansk Bay, form a metropolitan area with almost 1 million inhabitants. Apart from being a big and important industrial region the Tricity is well known as a popular vacation spot and one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Poland.
This “all – in – one”, the informative, full-day tour will allow our guests to see the most important landmarks of the agglomeration.
Begin with a visit to the Old Town of Gdansk with its many narrow, winding streets and gabled houses. It is here that you will find the famous architectural jewels e.g. the medieval port Craine, the Green Gate, which was the former royal residence of the city for Polish Kings when they visited, the Town Hall and the Long Market with the splendid Neptune Fountain – the symbol of Gdansk, etc.
Continue your drive into Oliwa, a small suburb originally established in the 12th century around the Cistercian monastery. Visit the medieval Oliwa Cathedral, world-famous for its magnificent pipe organ for a 20 – minute organ recital, a real feast to your ears.
Afterward head to Sopot – main Polish sea resort with the longest wooden pier on the Baltic, beaches and characteristic Art Nouveau architecture. You may want to spend a bit of time in the lovely and vibrant pedestrian promenade Monciak , filled with local cafes and restaurants offering good opportunities for lunch.
And finally Gdynia, youngest of the tri-city complex, which developed before WWII as a modern, dynamic port city. A good place to start the tour is atop the hill, where you can see the whole of Gdynia laid out before you. Later you will tour the city’s most representative square, a mooring place for Gdynia’s ships-museums.
After the tour you will be driven back to your hotel or any place agreed before via e-mail.
