BRAND NEW CITY BREAK!

With: Eddie & Kathy Williams

“Stare Miasto” means “Old Town” in Polish, and that is exactly where you will find our hotel, the Mercure Stare Miasto. It is perfectly located overlooking the old town and shipyards.

Gdansk is a simply wonderful old, historic town. It is literally crammed full with so many incredibly beautiful buildings within its city walls, so it is so easy to walk around at leisure, and see everything without having to hop on and off public transport! Enter through the Upland Gate and walk the Royal Way following in the footsteps of the Polish Kings down its cobbled streets brimming with architecture.

Hardly surprising, given its complex history, Gdansk is full of museums - again all within a short walking distance from our hotel. There is a fine World War 2 museum, taking you through the full European history from when the first shot was fired here in Gdansk that triggered the start of the war. You can visit the European Solidarity Centre, which burst into life at the time of the shipyard strikes in 1980, led by Lech Walesa, or enjoy the Maritime museum, where the chequered history of this sea faring city unfolds.

The old town is full of beautiful churches, clock towers and shops selling the local gem, amber. A ten minute walk takes you to St Marys Church, the largest brick building in Europe, or you can slip inside St Brigit’s Church, just behind our hotel and admire the incredible alter made of pure amber, and reflect that it was here that Solidarity gathered much of its moral strength.

The Madison Mall opposite our hotel boasts over 100 shops and restaurant under one roof. The riverside is vibrant and full of cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops and attractions. You can walk over the bridges on to the two islands across the River Motlawa that leads to the Baltic and form part of this fine city.

5 NIGHTS HALF BOARD + 2 NIGHTS BED & BREAKFAST

We have opted to include 5 evening meals during your stay to give you the opportunity to try out some of the excellent restaurants on 2 days. There are numerous ones in the immediate vicinity of our hotel and they stay open all day long.

INCLUDED IN YOUR PACKAGE - 3 FABULOUS EXCURSIONS

A four hour guided walking tour of Gdansk - with plenty of rest stops and a knowledgeable guide.

A guided coach tour to the elite Polish Riviera, Sopot and a visit to Gdansk Oliwa Cathedral where you will experience an organ concert.

A guided coach tour to Malbork Castle. This UNESCO listed fort is not only the world’s biggest brick castle, but also a delightful mix of medieval architecture and communism.
