Tri-City: Three cities, one destination

What can Tri-City offer visitors from the United Kingdom and Ireland that they may not find elsewhere in Poland?

 

“Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot - three cities, one destination. Three different cities, three different characters – one metropolis. Gdansk, which celebrated its thousand-year anniversary in 1997, is a beautiful city, full of monuments and historical places. It has played a major role in the commercial relationships over the years, with Northern and Western Europe to one side, and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe to the other.Gdynia is a young, but rapidly expanding port situated on the coast, with many tourist attractions as well as excellent shopping opportunities and entertainment.Located on the Baltic Sea coast between Gdansk and Gdynia, Sopot is a small but lively spa town with plenty to offer in terms of culture and entertainment.”

Most people in the United Kingdom and Ireland will have heard of Gdansk, but they may not be familiar with Gdynia and Sopot. How do you plan to raise the profile of these towns?

“Gdansk is the natural capital of the region, however with joint promotion initiatives such as the shopandsee project, we feel people will also become familiar with Gdynia and Sopot. This year we started the promotion with the slogan: Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot- three cities- one destination. On the other hand, almost every tourist who comes to Gdansk will also visit Gdynia and Sopot and will then go home and tell their friends and family about these places.“

The "Shop and See" campaign has been promoting Gdansk and the Tri-City. Please tell me a bit more about the campaign and what it involves.

“www.shopandsee.eu is a new website which provides complete tourist information for Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot and the Pomerania Region. It was created to promote the Tri-City and the surrounding region as particularly great destination for shopping. But the website contains lots more valuable information for visitors. It provides details of where to go for wellness and pampering including spa, medical services and hair salons. It also lists details of concerts and events as well as providing practical information on travelling to and around Pomerania”

What is there to see and do in the rest of Pomerania, beyond the Tri-City?

Our region has so much to offer that it is really hard to select only a few. There is something for everyone. The magic of Pomerania is created by the rolling waves of the Baltic Sea, the mysterious forests and woods with hundreds of lakes and rivers, the beauty of the landscapes and the picturesque hills. Highlights include Malbork,
Szymbark- Kashubia with its ‘Upside-down house’ and the shifting sand dunes in the Słowiński National Park.

How easy is it to travel to Gdansk from the United Kingdom and Ireland?

There are direct flights to Gdansk from the following airports: Birmingham, Bristol, Cork, Doncaster-Sheffield, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow-Prestwick, Liverpool, Luton, Stansted and Shannon.

Are there any attractions or events that we should look out for in 2009?

There will be several events taking place throughout 2009, including the Tall Ships Races, the Open'er Festival, the re-enactment of the Siege of Malbork, the Shakespeare Festival and the St Dominic “Fair Soul” Festival.
