There is no other place like Gdansk. Other cities can just resemble Gdansk. Its unique location and over a thousand years’ history shape Gdansk’s expressive and distinctive character and give it strong and implicit recognition among European cities. Nonetheless, the city holds an abundance of mysteries; it has got its own spirit which makes it impossible to mistake Gdansk for any other place.
There is no Gdansk without freedom. Courage, freshness, but first of all freedom; for centuries people of Gdansk have highly valued this virtue which in turn has shaped the city’s unique “genius loci”. Not only can one sense it among the Old Town’s patrician houses, but also amid the Young City’s shipyard cranes and on beautiful, sandy beaches as well as in post-industrial halls, in parks and tunnels. Freedom is ubiquitous in Gdansk, it is almost tangible, and it is the source of inspiration. It transforms space and people.
Contemporary Gdansk is a modern metropolis, a thriving centre of culture, science, sports and entertainment; it is also an attractive tourist destination and the world’s capital city of amber. It comes as no surprise that Gdansk, also famous for its breath-taking Stadion Energa Gdańsk was one of the host-cities of UEFA EURO.
Gdansk has become a focal point for debates on the present-day world. Gdansk stimulates art and fashion designers’ imagination, inspires artists and attracts most innovative economic trends. The city is also a robust conference venue – the new investments (Lech Walesa Airport, AmberExpo Exhibition and Convention Centre and newly opened hotels) act like a magnet for thousands of business tourists.
Since Gdansk is the city of cutting-edge technological innovations, conference and business meeting participants can make use of the GCBeVENT. The event application, one of Poland’s pioneering solutions is available free of charge. GCBeVENT is available for the 4 operating systems – iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry; not only does the application come handy in organisation of events ranging from conferences, thought trainings to city games, but also complements the event offer.
Gdansk, an intriguing and life-throbbing city has been recommended by the renowned British guidebook publisher – Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Travel as one of the top ten must-see tourist hits in the world. The New York Times journalists have included Gdansk in their list of the world’s forty cities praised for being tourist-friendly.
