Gdansk is one of the largest cities in Poland. Its history dates back to the 10th century and relics of its history are still present today, despite being rebuilt following the Second World War, including all along Long Street, where Polish monarchs once travelled to get to Long Market. The market also has a plethora of small shops selling the city's speciality good, amber. There are a number of fascinating museums including the Solidarity Center Foundation - Roads to Freedom Exhibition which offers an insight into the events leading up to the foundation of the Solidarity movement. Take the bus over to Westerplatte to see the spot where the first shots of World War II were fired or head out to the sea resort Sopot, which boasts the longest pier in Europe.
