Gdansk
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
AMAZING destination...friendly people interesting city...what a surprise!!! We did it alone.... took a tram from Gdynia to Gdansk and just walked and walked and walked. It is a wonderful city, and the excursions from Oceania (at 250$ a person) were doing the same thing as we were. Don't miss the open market, and next to it, a fabulous meat market, featuring every possible type of sausage known to man. Try the very thin KABANOS...they are amazing!!!

WOW... we arrived to a tall ships race, and a wonderful carnival and festival of music and beer....the city was a veritable happening. Take a 15 minute train ride to Rostock, also a lovely city to roam around in.

Nice port, lovely strolling through the city, take a coffee, there is an open market on the port square...nothing grandiose but pleasant.

Here I would recommend an excursion... it is easy to get lost, the taxis rip you off left and right, and somehow, I felt an impending danger here. I had the feeling the people would do anything, there is a certain uneasiness and desperation in the city....not a city to do alone...( and not a city I am destined to return to)
