We especially recommend the following attractions:
The Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre – a splendid theatre opened in 2014, constructed on the site of a 17th-century Fencing School, a venue in which English actors used to perform plays of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries. The GST combines a traditional Elizabethan stage with modern technologies and incredible architecture. It is undoubtedly a new landmark of Gdańsk, both due to its architectural value and its outstanding performances.

Museum of the Second World War – opened in 2017, the museum is the latest landmark of Gdańsk. The mission of this modern institution is to present the history of the Second World War in its entirety: focusing not only on military forces and diplomacy, but also on everyday life and suffering of millions of individuals, both civilians and soldiers. The underground permanent exhibition amazes with its diversity, magnitude and world-class design. As the Museum is extremely popular, we recommend purchasing the tickets far in advance.

Malbork Castle – situated 60 km from Gdańsk, the castle in Malbork is one of the greatest tourist destinations in Poland. Interestingly, it is the largest castle in the world measured by land area. The Castle of the Teutonic Order has a very twisted and surprising history, and in spite of having been built in the 13th century, this architectural masterpiece does not cease to amaze and enrapture its visitors.
