With its roots in the 8th century, Gdansk seems to always have kept up with the times. The city has adapted continuously throughout the centuries, changing nationality no less than six times.

The changes can be followed by looking at the architecture of the city. This is perhaps particularly true of the houses in the Old Town – considered a must-see by many of those who have experienced Gdansk during a cruise or on a land tour. Read the full Port Profile of Gdansk Poland.
