The port dates back a thousand years and was an influential city in the Hanseatic League during the Middle Ages. The city was essentially destroyed during World War II but has rebuilt into one of Europe's most beautiful port cities. The city now has a population of around 460,000 and is a popular tourist destination for visitors from around the globe. It is known for its impressive city center, its great museums, and its beaches that line the coast of the Gulf of Gdansk. In particular, it is a popular summer destination.

Gdansk's climate is temperate and it has cold and cloudy winters. Summers are mild with rain and thunderstorms common. It often feels damp throughout the city. There are four distinct seasons. Spring begins in March and starts out cold and windy but eventually becomes warmer and sunny. Summer starts in June and is usually warm with occasional heat waves.

Most tourists spend the majority of their time in the Srodmiescie district, which is the city's central quarter and where you'll find the majority of the main attractions and sights. This district can then be divided into the Main Town, or Glowne Miasto, and the Old Town, or Stre Miasto. There are also a handful of attractions that are outside of this area.

In addition to exploring the city, many visitors also enjoy taking a dip in the sea. You can take the tram to the last stop at Stogi Plaza.
