Top 10 Things to Do in Gdansk

Are you traveling to Gdansk? Here’s a list of our favorite attractions and the top 10 things to do in Gdansk as a tourist!

Old Town

A beautiful old town with many well-preserved buildings from the Middle Ages. There’s good potential for discovery of both local crafts and products. In the Old Town, there are also several restaurants and cafes serving Polish specialties.

Oliwa Zoo – Do not support this attraction

The only reason why we have included this attraction in this list is because it’s one of the most popular things to do in Gdansk. We want to inform you about how bad it is towards animals to lock them up in a cage for the rest of their lives. Imagine yourself being locked up in the same apartment for the rest of your days – you can’t escape, you can’t hide, and people are constantly looking through your window staring at you. I’m sure that you also would also get that claustrophobic feeling and constant panic that the animals feel while living in captivity.

Animals are meant to live in the wild, not in captivity. Please, do not support any attractions that involve animals while traveling the world.

Kosciol Mariacki – St. Mary’s Church

This church is the largest stone church in Europe. The St. Mary’s Church is located in Old Town and is just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Inside the church, there are many beautiful paintings and sculptures. During the summer you can also visit the church tower and enjoy a breathtaking view of the whole city!

Murale Gdansk Zaspa

From the beginning, this was a boring high-rise area – but over time, this place has created something and become a real attraction in Gdansk. Here they’ve let local artists paint the buildings with their beautiful art.

If you’re interested in art, then you have to write up Murale Gdansk Zaspa on your list of things to do in Gdansk!


Take care of your body, mind, and soul, and visit one of Gdansk’s various spa facilities. We recommend Arcadia Spa, which has an excellent range of treatments and skilled staff. But there are also about 15 other spas to choose from.

And best part of all, it’s also cheap and keep the same high standard like other spa facilities around the world!

Oliwa Cathedral

This cathedral has a long history and has frequently been burned down and rebuilt. This has led to that the Oliwa Cathedral have several different styles in its architecture and you can among other things see an altar in the Baroque style and another in the Renaissance style. The cathedral’s pride is the organ that took 30 years to build.
