Gdańsk is a port city in Poland . It is situated in the northern part of the country on the coast of the Baltic Sea. Currently it has a population of about 455,000 people.

Look Into the History

Gdańsk has a long and rich history. It used to be an independent Hanseatic city in the Middle Ages. Polish and German culture blend into one in Gdańsk. The reason is that it used to be almost completely a German city. It is said that about 90% of inhabitants were of a German origin. This was changed after World War II when Gdańsk became a Polish city. In 1980, a unionist movement called Solidarity was founded in the city. It was headed by Lech Wałęsa who later became a Polish president. The movement was highly involved in the deposal of the Communist regime in Poland.
