Welcome to In Your Pocket: Gdańsk, though I should be saying, quite simply, The Tri-city (p.26). Many people coming here don’t fully realise how much else is going on in the area and, in my opinion, we are all are incredibly lucky to have three well-established cities with thriving communities, restaurants, cafés, nightlife and cultural events in such a short distance from each other… and it’s all at your finger-tips!
Even more exciting is the fact that the summer months have set in and these aspects in each city are twice as amplified as they are during the other times of the year. For this reason, I would strongly recommend taking a look at the Events Guide (p.14) because now is when it’s all going on! The adventure is yours to choose… and you don’t always need WiFi to make it happen! For the first time, we’ve made a walking tour for each city that can be taken advantage of if you browse the other sections to see what’s nearby. And if you do get lost, don’t be afraid to ask a young Pole for directions. Most have learnt English and love to help! Lastly, I would like to thank Martin Kitson, founder of Poland In Your Pocket, and IYP’s primary editor in the Tri-city area for almost 20 years. He is a big reason why we’ve been able to continue to be in circulation for so long and the very foundation on which I was able to put together my first print guide to the Tri-city. Thank you, everyone!

Gdańsk’s importance as a port city lead to its starring role in the start of WWII (p.46). Today the city’s riverfront, lined with cafes and restaurants, is ideal for a stroll, and we’ve plotted the perfect route (p.32).
