Planning a trip to the Baltic Sea? Head to the Polish part with cheap flights to Gdansk onboard a low cost airline. Arguably the most beautiful city on the Baltic Coast, Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport (GDN) is served by Wizz Air and Ryanair from the UK with departures from London, Birmingham, Liverpool and others.
Being right on the coast, summer is without a doubt the most popular time to plan a holiday in Gdansk. July and August are the warmest months of the year, perfect to enjoy the coast, but September and spring are more suited for a city break. Book your flights to Gdansk at least 3 months in advance for the best flight offers.
Direct flights to Gdansk take 2 hours from London.
Gdansk is one of the most beautiful cities in northern Europe and has long architectural traditions. In WWII it was a strategic place and Germany fought Poland for it many times. Gdansk is the birthplace of Solidarity, is famous for its shipyards and is completely charming.
Old Town: Many of Gdansk's old buildings were destroyed during WWII but the Old Town is still a highlight for visitors on holidays in Gdansk. Artus Court, Long Market, Neptune Fountain, Motlawa River bank with its fine and impressive houses and St. Mary's Street are all must-sees.
Amber shopping: Gdansk is called the Amber capital of the world as the surrounding area is the richest known source of the beautiful, golden coloured semi-precious stone. It is the most popular souvenir to buy while shopping in Gdansk.
Baltic Sea: Being so close to the coast, it would be a shame not to take a dip into the sea during summer. Beware though, it's cold! Stogi Beach is large and is the most popular beach near the city centre.
