Gda?sk is Poland’s most important harbor and is located in the north, by the shore of the Baltic Sea. The 6th largest city in Poland, Gda?sk has a unique character, evident by its classic architectural style and colors. Find a good vantage point and you won’t be able to miss St. Mary’s Church, which is the world’s largest brick and mortar church. The majority of the city’s tourist attractions can be found in Ulica D?uga Street and the D?ugi Targ market.
Most of Poland rests on a relatively flat terrain, with an average surface height of 173 meters (567 feet). In the south of the country, however, on the border with Slovakia, you can find the Tatra Mountain Range. While most of the Tatra Mountains are located in Slovakia, the ridges in Poland’s area offer spectacular views, as well as the ski town of Zakopane, known as “the winter capital of Poland”.
