Chose a Holiday Rental in Gdansk for Your Next Home Away from Home

• Walking around the beautiful old town can easily take half a day; if you intend visiting some of the museums and merchants’ houses you will need much longer.

• There are many attractive restaurants, bars and shops - but if you shop in Gdynia you will probably get better value.

• Ul Mariacka is probably the prettiest street. At the end of the street is ancient St Mary’s Church – the largest brick-built church in the world.

• The museum in the Rathaus (town hall) is well worth visiting – it is not large but provides fascinating details of Gdansk’s history.

• If you are feeling energetic you can climb up the tower of the Rathaus; from here you will get a great view of the town and the river.

• The white building next to it, Artus’ Court, is also well worth a visit – it is the livery hall where the merchants met when Gdansk was a prosperous port serving much of central and Eastern Europe.

• The Solidarity museum is next to the Three Crosses Memorial outside one of the gates to the shipyard. This memorial is to the shipyard workers who were shot in the 1970s. The museum records the strike in the 1980s when Solidarity was founded – and when the communist government started to founder. A visit is strongly recommended – it’s about 25 minutes walk from the old town, through the New Town (which is also old). If you walk, then stop at St Brigitta’s church on the way – it was the church where the striking workers went to mass. The priest there was (and is) very political – inside the church the memorials give a summary of the history of Poland and some of the important battles in Poland’s history. If you drive to the Three Crosses Memorial there is normally easy parking just outside the shipyard gate.

• The medieval Great Crane by the waterfront is the symbol of Gdansk. You can go inside and see how it worked. It was used for loading grain for more than 500 years.

• If the weather is fine you can take a return boat ride from the waterfront near the Great Crane to Westerplatte, where the first shots of WWII were fired. The voyage through the shipyards is fascinating. Tickets are available from a booth on the waterfront.

• The Post Office in the New Town is also interesting – there was a historic and heroic 3 day battle there in the first days of WWII .

• Pod Losem (“under the sign of the salmon”) is probably the most famous restaurant in Gdansk and is good for special occasions. Wine (as in all restaurants in Poland) is expensive relative to vodka or beer. Many heads of state have eaten there. It is expensive by Polish standards and frequented mainly by tourists so can be quiet. The Gdanska restaurant is similarly traditional and very elaborately decorated with model sailing ships hanging from the ceilings, in Gdansk style.

                                                              I travelled to Gdansk to experience Euro Cup 2012, I had tickets to see Spain. My friend and I travelled to Gdansk by train from Berlin and encountered some issues which made our arrival in Gdansk 4 hours later, (around 23hr) then anticipated. Mariusz, the owner, offered to pick us up and take us to the apartment so we didn't have to walk, which you could without issue, or take a cab. The apartment was perfect! It was clean and had everything you could possibly need. The location was amazing! The street outside our window was lined with Amber shops. One block in either direction from the apartment was breathtaking; the the main square with plenty of bars, restaurants and the river lined with great bars, restuarants and shops. The city and the people of Gdansk are beautiful. We had an incredible experience and I would love to visit again someday soon. Thank You Mariusz and Anna for your wonderful hospitality.

                                                              For Demanding Business Travelers

                                                              Originally I booked the apartment for one week but on the second day I received an urgent message that shortened my stay to only four days. I notified the apartment owner, Jan, about it and he agreed to give me full refund for the unused 3 days – NO questions asked! Although it's very close to the main town square, the apartment is located in a very quiet area at the edge of old town. It is indeed a very good place to rest. You couldn’t hear a single sound at night and the mattress in the bedroom was very comfortable. The sofa in the living room was also exceptionally comfortable. The apartment is tastefully decorated and impeccably maintained. What I liked most was the fast wireless internet service. I spent each day a couple of hours on the sofa attending important business matters on my own laptop. Very useful was also the mobile phone provided free of charge. I could use that for local calls within Poland. That saved me a lot on the long distance calls that I would be charged using my own California phone. I found a botlle of white wine in the fridge (surprise!) But other than that, I did not use the kitchen at all although it seemed to be well equipped. Instead, I walked 10 minutes to the market square (Dlugi Targ) with a number of good restaurants. The food was not only good but also very affordable. I loved English Breakfast at the restaurant "Piwnica Rajcow", next to the Artus Court and the Neptune Fountain. The lady who greeted me at the airport and took care of me during my stay was also very pleasant and spoke reasonably good English. I wholeheartedly recommend Jan’s apartment for all demanding business travelers. Rich Oakland, California

                                                              I have just returned home to rainy, cloudy Manchester after a lovely week at The House of Storks. What a beautiful house! Spacious, exquisitely clean, well-cared for, well-equipped and in a beautiful location - Bojano, very close to Gdansk. It was a delight to laze in the huge garden or eat breakfast at the table outside watching and listening to the birds; we even heard a cuckoo. Deer crossed the path near the house and storks nested nearby. Some mornings we would see the baby stork poking its head out of its nest. Bojano is good for interesting walks and cycle rides - the area is very flat. The meals we ate, mainly in Gydinia, were excellent. Gdansk is an intersting city - the shipyards and the quaint streets. It was also incredibly easy to park! My favourite place was Sopot - glamour from yesteryear! One occasion we heard piano playing from one of the villas, some displaying a faded glamour, and it felt as though we had stepped back into the early 19th century. Slowinsky National Park, although quite a drive, is an unusual phenomenon, but what a chill wind. I regret not visitng the Hel peninsular. But the roads and the drivers were a little scary! Mirka and Krys who look after the house were very friendly, helpful and amenable. They are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful location. Poland and The House of Storks surpassed my expectations and I would love to return. It was one of the best holidays I have had. I will be recommending Poland and the House of Storks to all my friends and family.
