What better way to mark the launch of a new British Airways route than with a short break to Gdansk? Flights to Gdansk on Poland’s Baltic coast will start from summer 2021 and we could not think of anything nicer than spending a few days in this Baltic beauty. Stay in the new Holiday Inn on Granary Island and get to know the city better on a 3-hour walking tour. This break also includes a cruise on a tall ship up to the Westerplatte Monument - site of the first battle of WWII.
Speak with your Regent Poland Travel Specialist about upgrading your hotel in Gdansk or combining Gdansk with other cities in Poland.
Fly to Gdansk, take a private transfer to your hotel and check in for three nights.
Learn about Gdansk's fascinating and turbulent history on a 3-hour walking tour of the city. The main thoroughfares of Gdansk are packed full of historic buildings, restored after the city was all but destroyed during WWII. Stroll along Długa Street to see the impressive Artus Court and Neptune Fountain before reaching the Motława River bank with its pretty pastel coloured buildings and the iconic 'Crane' which is now part of the National Maritime Museum. After the tour you may feel a little peckish so head to Słony Spichlerz on Granary Island for lunch. Found in the repurposed Deo Plaza building this restaurant/market concept combines many restaurants and cuisines under one roof. Japanese in Gdansk- why not? Or stick to good solid Polish fare; the choice is yours!
Sail up the Motława River to Westerplatte (1.5 hours each way). Tour the site and learn about the events that unfurled here during WWII. The site houses a small museum and an imposing monument dedicated to the soldiers who sought to defend the Polish coast. Choose to spend 1 or 2 hours here before returning to the city.
After a day spent at leisure, transfer back to the airport for your return flight.
