Gdańsk city guide

Gdańsk city guide
Polish coastline is vast, at least compared to all the other Baltic countries. All this coastline and just one city stands out. Alright, three cities often portrayed as one. The Tricity comprises of Gdańsk, Sopot, and Gdynia. It is a sort of Polish seaside capital. The industrial and trade kind, not the beaches and margaritas kind (that would be Sopot). I'm surprised people call it a hidden gem. It's not a hidden gem, it's an immensely popular destination. Gdańsk's location at the delta of the Vistula river was the key to its prosperity. It flows through the entire country. From the mountains down south through Krakow and Warsaw right to the Gdańsk Bay delta. Various wares from all over Poland got placed on barges and followed the current to that one port. Gdańsk quickly became the wea...

Kraków city guide

Kraków city guide
Krakow or Cracow and in Polish: Kraków is the first thing that comes to mind when people are asked about Poland, or third, after kielbasa and vodka.

That hill is also where the dragon of legend lives, supposedly still feasting on virgin girls. In fact, he lost a bit of weight, since that kind of a diet is hardly sustainable nowadays. Kraków was lucky, it remained untouched by the bombardments, the Old Town and Main Market Square are the same as they were during medieva...

Warsaw city guide

Warsaw city guide
Warsaw, the capital of a country that just can't give anything up, and constantly blames everything on the past. It's like a city full of entitled millennials. Personally, as someone born and raised in Warsaw, I believe that the capital should have remained in Cracow, but it's not for me to decide and tourists seem to love this city so it's probably a matter of perspective. Truth be told, there isn't much to see in Warsaw, everyone blames the wars but in my humble opinion- it's just an unwelcoming and obnoxious city. Everything there is to see in the capital can be seen in one day. Actually, there's not much to see at all, apart from the Old Town, Wilanów Palace, and the Warsaw Uprising Museum (for a healthy dose of that famous, polish misery). Old Town Square, Old Town Royal Palace, Old ...
