Getting to Gdańsk

Why Gdańsk?

Gdańsk is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourism and cultural centres in Poland. It is a rapidly-growing university and commercial hub inhabited by nearly 500,000 people. Situated on the Gdansk Bay on the southern shores of the Baltic Sea, it constantly amazes visitors from around the globe with its beauty. Great road, air and railway infrastructure also make the city an attractive location for conference-type events. More than 1,800 business meetings take place in Gdansk and the region every year. With more than 50 participants per event, the total number of attendees is more than 607,000.
