The city is attractive for its historic architecture, narrow atmospheric streets and the smell of the sea in the air. Stroll along the colourful Long Market before perusing the amber shops on Mariacka Street, filled with intricate, beautiful jewellery. The gothic Kościół Mariack is also worth a visit for its stunning vaulted ceiling. Here are the best places to stay in Gdańsk.
