Gdansk

Gdansk

Tricity is a special complex of three different urban bodies connected by their unique location on Gdańsk Bay (Zatoka Gdańska) and separated from the rest of the World by post-glacial moraines. Gdańsk is a thousand years old, and is the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship with high architectural and cultural values, joined with Sopot, the most famous health resort and spa, which is located next to Gdynia, a modernistic, cutting-edge city. The three cities are connected by a fast railway line, offering combined leisure and cultural packages and shopping bargains. It is well connected to land, air and sea transport and affords lots of attractions and a unique climate.

Passport / Visa

Poland can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

The summer months, June through August, are the high season, which means both warm temperatures and larger amounts of tourists. To escape the slew of visitors, plan your trip for just before (May) or just after (September) the peak season, when temperatures are still pleasant but the area significantly less crowded.
