I had never been to Poland before, so was pretty excited to get the opportunity to take a trip to Gdańsk at the weekend. (It is at the very top of Poland, on the Baltic)
We arrived Friday and had a weekend of food, drink and exploring. I think I need another weekend just to recover.
Our hotel was lovely – added bonus we had the top room with some great views of the Long Lane, right by the Green Gate.
We even came across Poland’s very own Kings Road (minus the shops!).
Friday evening we enjoyed a cocktail or two (ok maybe three….).
We were lucky enough to be shown round Gdańsk on Saturday, so spent most of the day wandering around all the side streets and along the water, stopping off for coffee along the way, and a delicious fish lunch (sadly no pictures, but believe me, it was good).
We had a wonderful evening of food and drink. Now I am huge fan of cheese (with a boyfriend who doesn’t like it, I KNOW!!). I decided to order the cheese board anyway. When it stated it would take 20 – 40 minutes to arrive, I should have known it might be big..
Thank goodness I ordered salad as main!
John went for the steak.
I would certainly suggest a visit to Gdańsk. It is a really nice little place to wander around and explore. We couldn’t believe how many bars and restaurants there are for the size of the City!
Now where to next…..
