I’m back home in Sweden again after a lovely weekend-trip to Gdansk, Poland! I had never before visited Poland and was very pleasantly surprised by not only Gdansk but Poland as well. I thought I would do a blog post for each day as we visited other cities during our trip, that way it will be easier to find in the archive later. So here we go.
We flew from Malmö Airport on the 12th of April and the flight to Gdansk only took an hour! So an hour later we arrived at the airport in Gdansk and took a taxi to our hotel (review will be up shortly!). We stayed at Hotel Almond Business & SPA and it was so nice. Perfect walking distance to Gdansk Old Town and to the train station where we took the train the other days.
After checking in to our hotel we decided to explore Gdansk Old Town for the rest of the afternoon and oh my what a gorgeous town! The entire town is in pastel colours with the most beautiful houses I think I have ever seen! We walked around for a bit and found a restaurant to eat some lunch at. The weather was so nice and all three of us totally overdressed and was sweating the rest of the afternoon but it was so worth it.
After eating a light lunch we did what Swedes do best; we found a café for some FIKA. We drank some hot chocolates at a café called Pociąg Do and just sat down and relaxed. Our vacation was really starting! This trip was MY MOTHERS BIRTHDAY-TRIP so we did everything she wanted to. She wanted to have a nice relaxing weekend so that’s what we did! To end of the first day we walked back to our hotel and changed into our swimsuits and went down to the hotel spa.
After a few hours of swimming, hanging out in the saunas and sitting in the hot tub we went back up to our room and went to bed quite early so that we would be filled with energy for day two which was the first full day. I slept really good except that we had opened our window because of the heat and therefor heard so many sounds early in the morning haha, but that’s my own fault!
Restaurants visited this day:
- Mojito Caffe & Restaurant
- Pociąg Do…
Tourist attractions visited this day:
- Żuraw – medieval port crane
- Ulica Długa – the main street of Old Town
- Złota Brama – the Golden Gate at the end of the main street
That was it for the first day! If you want to see more pictures from Gdansk head over to my Instagram; @STROKEOFADVENTURE. Thank you for reading!
