At the beginning of the summer I had a chance to go visit Polish Gdansk, a lovely old town with many atmospheric restaurants and cafes, maritime history and port area. To get a feel for the city you might want to head up an observation deck and a good place for that is the old Saint Mary Church offering panoramic views in every direction. The church itself dates back to the 16th century built on ruins of a house of worship from the 13th century. It is one of the largest of its kind anywhere in the world and the tower is over a 100 meters long. Following the second world war it was almost completely reconstructed and is now one of the highlights of Gdansk.
