I have posted a report on the day that our family spent in Gdansk, Poland while on a Baltic cruise in the summer of 2009. Gdansk, which was once an independent city-state called Danzig, celebrated its 1000th year as a Baltic city in 1997. The city was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War but the streets of its Main Town have been carefully restored.
We tried to make the best of our day in Gdansk, despite the rainy weather and the fact that we had opted for a cruise line shore excursion which meant tromping along with a bus load of people. The architecture of the restored Main Town is truly beautiful and I would have loved to be there on a nice sunny day so that we could have really appreciated it.
