Arrival in Gdansk. Airport transfer to your hotel
Visiting Westerplatte peninsula where the first battle of the Second World War took place on September 1, 1939 is just one of the highlights of our half-day private tour. You also shouldn’t miss the former Lenin Shipyards with the Road to Freedom exhibition as well as the picturesque Main Town with its fabulous town houses and the world’s biggest brick church.
Visitors love the old granaries near the river promenade and the leisurely, almost maritime atmosphere so perhaps you may like to stay and enjoy free time. If the weather is good and you feel like extensive travelling, the driver can take you also to nearby Sopot, the prime Polish seaside resort.
This half-day private tour will bring you to Stutthof. In 1939-1945 it was one of the cruellest of Nazi camps, and was established to round up and annihilate the Polish opposition in the Gdansk region – but after 1942 it became one of the extermination camps for the Final Solution. Over 100,000 people were kept in the camp, and the number of dead is estimated at 65-85,000.
