Living in Gdansk

Expatriates moving to Gdansk will find that the city has a long and interesting history dating back to the middle ages which is reflected in its architecture, with some buildings even having survived from the 13th century. Most famous landmarks are located around the Ulica Dluga and Dlugi Targ areas, also known as the Royal Road, which is pedestrianized and book-ended by the elaborately designed City Gates. The gates and the surrounding area bring a number of visitors to the city, and are a must-see for any expat living in Gdansk. Another popular tourist attraction is St. Mary’s Church; one of the largest Gothic churches in Europe and supposedly the largest brick church in the world. Expats moving to Gdansk can connect with other expats and global minds living in the city to talk about history, architecture and churches, but also sports, restaurants and parks by using the numerous discussion groups and forums on InterNations.

Moving to Gdansk

Gdansk has great transport links, making it a sensible city to move to even if you are considering working in the neighboring cities. The city is typically European with many very old buildings and some more modern post-war developments. When considering moving to Gdansk, expatriates can garner information from expats living in Gdansk or other parts of Poland on topics such as apartments, housing, banking and even storage, by connecting on the discussion groups and forums on the InterNations website. Our Expat Magazine furthermore features articles written by other expats on their experiences of moving, living and working abroad, as well as general information on all things expatriate, which can be invaluable when relocating somewhere new.

Working in Gdansk

Gdansk is also known as the ‘Pearl of the Baltic Sea’, however, it’s not pearls but amber that has played a part in the economy. Most of the world’s amber deposits are found along the Baltic coast, so naturally there is an amber processing industry in Gdansk. Situated at the mouth of the Motlawa River, Gdansk has waterways that connect all the way to the capital city, Warsaw. In the past, this meant that Gdansk became the principal seaport of Poland and once had a thriving shipbuilding trade. Today, the Gdansk economy is about more than just shipping, with petrochemical, food processing, electronics, telecommunications, IT, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and engineering industries all playing their roles. Like many coastal cities, Gdansk also attracts many tourists over the summer months from the rest of Poland and the EU. Expats in Gdansk can discuss the wide range of employment opportunities that Gdansk has to offer with expatriates working in Gdansk by using InterNations.
