Gdansk: Tricity Tour

By the name of Tricity we mean three cities located right next to each other in Pomerania region – Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia which operate as a one urban area and share a lot of infrastructure like for example public transportation system. However each of them is completely different. Gdansk is famous for its enchanting architecture and rich history, Sopot is a fancy sea resort known for its vivid nightlife, restaurants and numerous cultural events and Gdynia is a big port which is now a center of maritime industries and shipbuilding. If during your stay in Gdansk you want to discover more than just highlights of this beautiful city, this tour may be a perfect choice. You will have a chance to expand your knowledge about history of Poland, admire the colourful buildings and feel the atmosphere of a relaxing vacations at the seaside – all during one full day tour.
