Gdansk apartment rentals:The most important city of northern Poland, Gdansk sits on the Baltic Sea and is near many of Poland's most popular resorts. The city itself offers a charming historic centre, loaded with monuments and testaments to its millennial history, though much of what you see now was re-built after World War II.
Start your visit along the "Ulica Dluga," or "Long Street," an emblematic thoroughfare where you'll find colorful old houses in a variety of architectural styles. There are several good museums along the street as well. Down by the water, the old streets around the port are a maze of life and commerce, and rambling among the amber vendors on Mariacki is a pleasant way to pass the morning.
You can also visit the "Dlugi Targ" ("Long Market"), a wide square lined with mansions where you'll find the emblematic Neptune Fountain. The ornate town hall and the city's many gates are interesting too. Nearby are churches and other monuments.
Spring and summer are warm and pleasant throughout Poland, and though the peak summer months of July and August get crowded, especially here on the coast, these are the months when you'll best appreciate the natural beauty around Gdansk.
