Gdansk : Michelin's recommendations
The old Prussian city of Danzig was a flourishing place in the Middle Ages. A strategic point in Poland - at the mouth of the Vistula where it empties into the Baltic Sea -, it was here that Europe slipped into the Second World War when Nazi troops attacked the town in September 1939. In the 80's, Gdansk rose to fame as the birthplace of the trade union movement Solidarnosc, active in the dockyards under the leadership of Lech Walesa. Reduced to rubble during the war, the city has been rebuilt in an attractive style reminiscent of Flanders.
