Gdansk, Poland

Hi there! My name is Sarah from Yes Teacher Crafts and I'm so excited to be guest posting for Beth today! I'll be sharing one of my favorite cities with you: Gdansk, Poland.

Yes, I realize that it's not the city you fantasize about when you think of a European vacation, but trust me: it's right up there with Paris and Rome!!

My husband and I got a chance to visit Gdansk as part of a Central European road trip we took with my parents (sometimes it's convenient that my parents live in France as Christian missionaries!)

We enjoyed the tall cathedrals:

The street views:

The farmer's market:

And the architecture:

You can walk along the Motlaw River and stop at any number of charming cafes to watch ships of all sizes float by. That big brown structure in the picture below is a medieval port crane!
So as you're planning your European dream vacation, 
don't forget to swing by Poland! 
Who knew, right?

  1. Lovely- Gdansk is one of my favorite cities too- I spent a summer there as a child living with my aunt and uncle in their HIGH rise building- I remember spending all my free time playing with all my new friends in the apartment court yard- On the weekends we would go to my uncles cottage by the water-

  4. I have to shamefully admit that I've never heard of Gdansk before!.. It looks so beautiful!!
    Poland was never on my tourist map but this place look not a bit less amazing than well known other European cities as Prague and Budapest!!
    Thanks for sharing Sarah!!
