SIGHTSEEING

INCLUDING TRANSPORT

There are a lot of places to see outside of "Gdansk" (Locals, by saying Gdansk, refer to the strict City Center, so even if they live in one of its quarters, they would often say, they "go to Gdansk" having in mind the center of the city.

There is various possibilities to move along Tricity: public transport (buses, trains, trams), ships (in high season only!), bus rental.

What does Tricity offer?

Oliwa District of Gdansk : wonderful English and French styled park with the Opatów Palac and Cathedral with an Organ play.

Sopot : have a walk through Poland's most visited street Monte Cassino, enjoy a coffee or beer at the Seaside, walk on the longest wooden pier in Europe. 

Gdynia : Enjoy the power of a modern City that had its harbour built in the beginning of the XX Century while Gdansk was a Free City. Have a walk through the boulevar, see how the most attractive City to live in Poland looks like! Good idea for those who stay in Gdansk a couple of days and want to visit a new City.

About Me

Simple story of how I became a Certified Tourist Guide in Gdansk

I was born in Gdansk, but spent a couple of years studying and living abroad, in Germany, Spain, Italy and Northern Ireland.

I decided to go back in 2012 and saw Gdansk growing constantly becoming an open and interesting City to foreigners. Even my friends from different countries started visiting because they heard Gdansk was worth seeing and were always positively surprised by my City. I felt like I would love to have a deeper insight into Gdansk’s history just to tell them some interesting stories. After a couple of visits I felt that I liked it and that becoming a guide would be a perfect link to my long time experience abroad.  I felt like I could do it for a living so passed the official guide license exam and became an active Gdansk lover, participating in as much events about Gdansk as possible. This is an amazing City - complex history that is fascinating at the same time. It’s like a novel that never bores you but instead, you always want more, so I dedicated my life to Gdansk.

I also did the Tour Leader Course in 2016 which consist in taking care of tourists during longer coach and plane trips.

WHAT ELSE?

I graduated in German and Polish Law at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt Oder and University of Poznan and also spent several years at German Primary School before moving to Poland in the 90's.

I also studied Law in Almería, Spain and Italian in Bologna, Italy. 

This is the reason why I am able to offer tours in different languages on a high and professional level.
