9 Most Romantic Places To Visit In Gdańsk (Poland): For Lovers, Couples

You are welcome to my list of the top most romantic places to visit in Gdańsk, a port city on the Baltic coast of Poland. At the center of its Main Town, reconstructed after WWII, are the colorful facades of Long Market, now home to shops and restaurants. Nearby is Neptune Fountain, a 17th-century symbol of the city topped by a bronze statue of the sea god. Gdańsk is also a center for the world’s amber trade; boutiques throughout the city sell the ossified resin.

The City is ranked number two among the most beautiful Cities in Poland.

Love is in the air! There are places in Gdańsk where it feels like love is in the air. It can sometimes be felt only on some days in a year while in others, the magical atmosphere remains throughout the year. Engagement on the seashore by the setting sun or perhaps a romantic date in the centre of the city? Every dream can come true in Gdańsk and the city itself is a perfect background for the most beautiful love stories.

1. Gdansk beaches

9 Best Romantic Places To Visit In Gdansk (Poland), For Lover couples

Is there a more romantic way to spend time together than an evening walk on the beach by the setting sun or in the moonlight reflected on the surface of the sea? Gdańsk beaches attract large numbers of tourists, especially in the summer when the water is quite warm. Lover couples can be met there in great numbers. Most popular beaches are located in Jelitkowo, Brzeźno (with the only pier in Gdańsk) and on the Stogi.

However, if you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle and go for a long romantic walk visit the Sobieszewska Island where the beach is wild, wide and… can surprise you with amber! Who knows, perhaps your find will be perfect for an engagement ring? Looking for treasures on the beach together can be great fun. You can also talk wrapped in a blanket, looking at the horizon lit by the setting sun. The beach itself is a perfect place to awaken emotions but the access to it can be equally interesting because you will encounter the Ptasi Raj (Birds' Paradise) nature reserve on your way. We are sure it will not disappoint you.

2. Oliwa Park

Oliwa Park

The Oliwski Park is the most romantic place in the open air. This beautiful place full of greenery, located in the historical district of Gdańsk Oliwa is often used as a setting of wedding photo sessions. It says something  The Oliwski Park is rich in varied flower compositions, charming ponds and interesting architecture (Abbots’ Palace, Oliwska Cathedral).  The central part of the park contains a palm house with various tropical plants. Do not forget throwing coins to the nearby fountain to have a happy and rich life. In the summer, you can stroll along the alleys surrounded by classical music as numerous concerts such as the Mozart festival are held there.

3. Love Bridge

Love Bridge

At the junction of the Korzenna and Na Piaskach streets, you will notice a bridge with beautiful, openwork railing. The railing becomes less and less visible each year because colourful padlocks hanging there cover it. Lovers come there to symbolically make their relationships more durable by hanging a padlock with their initials, important dates or vows of undying love.  For the vow to be valid, they have to throw the key to the padlock to the Radunia river flowing beneath the bridge. Who would think that the Most Chlebowy (Bread Bridge) where bread used to be sold in the past, would become the Love Bridge!

4. Lighthouse


What about a date with a view of the Gdańsk Bay, Gdynia and, in good weather, even the Hel Peninsula? A historical lighthouse built in the 1890s is located in the Nowy Port district. 114 stairs lead to the top and the entire lighthouse is 27 metres high. It is probably the most beautiful lighthouse in our country and maybe even in Europe! The most interesting feature of the Gdańsk lighthouse is the reconstructed unique Time Ball that was used for navigation in the past. The building can be visited in all seasons. However, remember to take a photo by the sea; it will be perfect for your album.

5. Millers’ Manor

Millers’ Manor

A date with a cup of hot chocolate? Why not! A Millers’ Manor once used to stand in the contemporary Jan Heweliusz Square. A decision was made during its renovation to move it to the Młyńska Island at the split of the Radunia Channel between the Wielki Młyn (Great Mill) and the Most Chlebowy (Bread Bridge) currently known as the Love Bridge. It houses the Czekoladowy Młyn (Chocolate Mill) now where you can taste various sweets; but this is not all… From time to time, you can drink hot chocolate surrounded by live music or take your drink outside and sit in the Heweliusza square by the colourful fountain.

6. Mariacka Street

Mariacka Street

Another unique place for a special wedding portrait session is the Mariacka Street believed to be the most beautiful street in Poland. The Mariacka Gate, characteristic perrons finished with gargoyles and the towering building of the St. Mary's Church (Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary) are an exceptional background of many photo sessions. Amber galleries, small cafes and street artists encourage one to stay there for a longer moment to feel the climate of the city to the full. The Mariacka Street is one of the favourite places for many artists and a setting of TV productions. Many couples visit the place, especially after dark when everything is beautifully illuminated with romantic lanterns.

7. Mariacka parish house

Mariacka parish house

Inhabitants of the city rarely reach this place and tourists reach it even more rarely; this is why it is so magical. A small parish house with a mysterious yard stays in the very centre of the city, near the St. Mary's Church and the Royal Chapel. It is worthwhile to pop in there for a moment for a respite from the city bustle and have a look at the interesting architecture. Characteristic historical objects include a wooden façade and portal with the 16th century coat of arms of the Ferbers (Maurycy Ferber was a parish priest and the initiator of the construction of the parish house).

8. Zachariasz Zappio Lane

Zachariasz Zappio Lane

A certain unique place for lovers that takes on a special ambience once a year is located in the vicinity of the St. John church in the Świętojańska Street. It is the Zachariasz Zappio lane that becomes an official stop for couples during the Saint Dominic Fair. The place is also known as the Lane of Kisses because it is there that one can kiss the loved one in the quiet, hidden from other people’s eyes. While being there, you can also enter the St. John Church that, in addition to being a shrine, also plays the role of a concert hall and an exhibition area.

9. Motława Wharf on the Granary Island

Motława Wharf on the Granary Island

One of the spots we can most frequently see on postcards from Gdańsk is the Długie Pobrzeże (Long Wharf) and the Motława River with the characteristic Crane. The Granary Island has been renovated recently and a pedestrian area with numerous benches was built there but it is not the most interesting thing about the place. A wheel similar to the well-known London Eye is a permanent part of the Main Town landscape. Can you imagine a more interesting date in the city centre than the one that allows you to admire it from 55 metres above? Even though the Gdańsk wheel is only open in the summer, it is very popular both among tourists and the locals.

Traveling to Gdansk (Poland), soon? Here are the best hotels and accommodations in Gdansk.

What to eat in Gdańsk

Gdańsk offers a wealth of international cooking with a long-standing tradition and first-rate sen/ice. Above all, there is a huge variety of cuisines, dishes and places where you can eat. You will find sophisticated cuisine from all the countries of Europe, exotic tastes from the Middle East and Asia and very original old Gdańsk cuisine* Everyone, even the most demanding gourmand, will find something to satisfy his palate and wallet. And if you are a vegetarian there are entirely vegetarian bars or restaurants which offer vegetarian courses next to the meat courses.

Meet The English Man Who Decides To Tattoo Himself Black

Most people prefer their art on their walls not as a permanent fixture of their bodies. But Eli Ink, a 27-year-old tattoo artist from Brighton, England, sees his body as a walking exhibition of his finest work.

He has spent the last ten years transforming himself. Tattooing most of his skin black with several coats of ink, dying his eyes and implanting stretchers in his nose and under his bottom lip. The process is far from finished, but the result is striking.

Eli’s obsession with body modification started from a young age after his uncle came back from Spain with a huge tribal tattoo.

‘In my opinion, the only person who will only ever understand my transition properly is me. I don’t attempt to describe it to anyone,’ he told MailOnline.

‘I’ve always been blown away by art itself. Picasso is a huge childhood inspiration to me, especially abstract art, but I do like all forms of art. Body art was just the next local step for me growing up.’

You can easily see his obsession with the ab…

Photos Of How People Will Look Like in 2100

Scientists have discovered how people will look like in 2100.

A company has created a 3D model of a future human, based on some of these scientific predictions - and the result is truly horrifying.

Dubbed "Mindy", the human of 2100 has a hunched back, caused by hours sitting in front of a computer monitor at the office and craning her neck to look at smartphones.

"The way we hold our phones can cause strain in certain points of contact – causing 'text claw' and '90-degree elbow' also known as the cubital tunnel syndrome," said Dr Nikola Djordjevic from Med Alert Help.

"This syndrome is caused by pressure or the stretching of the ulnar nerve which runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow.

"This causes numbness or a tingling sensation in the ring and little fingers, forearm pain, and weakness in the hands - keeping the elbow bent for a long time."

Mindy's final physical change is possibly her most outlandish - she has a secon…

Man Gets His Racist Tattoos Removed After Becoming A Dad

Bryon Widner by name, became a skinhead at the age of 14, and he spent 16 years involved with racist organizations in the midwest. He earned the nickname of “pit bull”, and went on to co-found Vinlanders Social Club, a white power group in Indiana.

Vinlanders soon gained a reputation for excessive violence and became one of the fastest-growing racist skinhead organizations in the US.

In 2005, Widner married Julie Larsen and a year later, the couple had a son. The responsibilities of fatherhood gave Widner the desire to reform and leave the racist movement, a desire shared by his new wife.

Widner took the decision to leave the neo-nazi group, but it took years of death threats and harassment before he felt that he was finally becoming “human again.”

Widner’s attempts to become part of regular society were understandably made more difficult by his many facial tattoos, which were both intimidating and openly racist. His wife Julie was afraid that he would do something extreme to erase hi…

Man Stops Drinking Alcohol, Narrates How Much Sobriety Changed Him In 3 Years

Giving up your vices and guilty pleasures can lead to a happier and healthier life that’s full of purpose. Even though you might not see the changes day-to-day when you give up drinking alcohol, they’re very apparent to others. One of the things that can keep you motivated is documenting the changes and looking at the photos side by side.

Well, one man has made the phrase ‘one day at a time’ fit both his fight with alcoholism and documenting his journey through sobriety. These last three years, Kenny D. has taken snaps of how he looked when he quit alcohol at key stages in his journey of sobriety. The changes within the first month are already huge and he is almost unrecognizable in the final pictures.

Kenny went sober three years ago. When he took his first photo, he was feeling awful.

“I took a picture of myself the day I got my first sobriety coin, 24 hours sober. I felt so ill and I looked so bad, I wanted to remember it so I wouldn’t forget. The day I got my 30-day coin, I though…

Single Dad Adopted A Baby Girl Rejected By 20 Families

Single Dad Adopted A Baby Girl With Down Syndrome Who Was Rejected By 20 Families.

Luca Trapanese – a 41-year-old single man from Italy – adopted Alba when she was merely 13 days old. The little girl has Down’s Syndrome and was given up for adoption by her mother because of it. It wasn’t easy to find a new family for baby Alba – 20 families rejected the newborn because of her condition. But fortunately, Luca turned up and Alba’s life changed forever.
Ever since Luca was 14, he had been working and volunteering for organizations focused on children with special needs. He also always wanted to become a father, however, this posed certain struggles, as he was (and still is) single. Fortunately, in 2017 he was finally given permission to adopt under one condition.
Luca was told that he could only adopt a baby with special needs who had been previously rejected by traditional families. Luca was in 7th heaven – he knew he was finally bound to become a father, just like he always dreamed. “…

Russian Gas Station Offers Free Fuel For Anyone In A Bikini; Guys Also Show Up

Russian Gas Station Offers Free Fuel For Anyone In A Bikini, Doesn’t Expect Guys Would Dress Down, Too.

Probably no one could argue that Russians are commonly known to cross the lines of what is deemed normal and surprise the world with something that would make people use the famous saying “only in Russia”. Well, this Russian gas station’s idea of marketing is definitely one of those things and it’s hilarious!

Olvi gas station in Samara, Russia had a quite strange idea for publicity: They decided to give free fuel for anyone dressed in a bikini.

They came up with quite a shocking idea for a publicity stunt and offered free fuel for anyone in a bikini.

All the while they probably expected females enroll in this stunt. Little did they know then that some men would show up wearing bikinis too! Our guess, that this wasn’t something they actually expected.

The gas station left out a loophole in their generous offer

Even though this special offer only lasted for three hours, people were ab…

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA a question asked by a Quora Community User: The question goes like this:

"If USA is wealthier than Canada, why does Canada feel more developed (far cleaner cities, a lot less crime, fewer homeless people, significantly higher life expectancy)?"

Kelly Meilleur Has the best answer:

Dual citizen here (CDN/USA).

I will try to explain Canada.

There is an entirely different sense of right and wrong in Canada. Canadians are democratic. (Not just a democracy; there’s a difference.)

That means they are happy to pay taxes - big taxes - so that they have the resources they need in their neighbourhoods. They don’t need to earn big money to be able to afford a house in a good school district or private school tuition in order to ensure a good k-12 foundation for their kids.

Their children do not need to take on hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt for an undergraduate or professional degree at a good school. Some Americans think that th…

Doctor removed 29 Metal Balls from a teenager’s bladder

Teenager Has 29 Metal Balls Removed After Putting Them Up His Penis

Doctor in southeastern China has removed 29 magnetic beads from a teenager’s bladder, three months after shoving them up his penis ‘out of curiosity.’
According to Chinese media reports, the ‘curious’ schoolboy, named Lin, 13-year-old, had dozens of magnetic balls removed from his penis by surgeons at Xi’an Children’s Hospital in the capital of China.
Remarkably, the teenager suffered intense abdominal pain for three months but was embarrassed to talk to his parents about it.
After Lin was performed an X-ray scan, the analysis revealed the magnetic beads had formed a tight cluster under his bladder.

The young teen told doctors that he had inserted the string of metallic balls into his urethra ‘out of curiosity.’
According to reports, the young boy is now recovering from the surgery and has already been discharged to continue recuperation at home.
