  1. These are really beautiful. I’ve been to Warsawa and the Tatry Mountains, but not Gdansk. It’s on my wish list but not likely in the near future. I’m in Krakow briefly at the end of this month.

  2. Ja sobie pozwolę na polski komentarz, mimo, że angielski znam 🙂 ale do rzeczy…

    Kocham Gdańsk, jest przepięknym miejscem, do którego che się wracać. bardzo ładna galeria, która odświeżyła mi wspomnienia z tego cudownego miejsca 🙂

  3. I’m going to have to follow your blog – I have Polish ancestry and will be planning a trip there at some point. Gdansk is one of the places family came from so it’s great to see these photos.

    • Gdańsk jest moim ulubionym miastem, nie tylko ze względu na architekturę i atmosferę, ale i ludzi. Zdecydowanie inna mentalność panuje tutaj w porównaniu np. do wschodniej czy południowej części Polski. Pozdrawiam z W-wy 🙂

      • O, a jakie widzisz różnice w mentalności? Jako mieszkanka mogę ich nie dostrzegać już, więc fajnie, jakbyś napisał 🙂

        Warszawa też jest ciekawym miastem.

        PS. Normalnie nie uprawiam autoreklamy, ale ponieważ widze podobną pasję podróżniczą, zapraszam na swój blog fotograficzny w innym serwisie: http://kaarolcia26.pinger.pl/
        🙂

      • Ooooo, fajny ten Twój blog. Widze, że jest dużo gór, które bardzo lubie. Również wrzucam do “ulubionych” 🙂

  4. If I had to choose my favorite city on the coast surely would be a Gdańsk. It is incredibly energetic place with many sights and restaurants serving great food. The great example is here for sure Szarafnia 10. It is located mear the Motława River and the glazed terrace you can enjoy this amazing river. Dishes of seafood and fish which are served there are excellent..
