A Weekend In Gdańsk Poland On a Budget

I had a lovely winter weekend in Gdańsk Poland. I stayed for 1 night from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon. Poland is cheaper than most European destinations, so I tracked and documented all my spending. This is a rough estimate based on the conversion rate I received when 1 British Pound was worth roughly 4.5 Polish złoty.

This was my second trip to Poland and I’m sure there will be a third. I think maybe Warszawa or Poznań will be next. The most popular destination for tourists is generally Kraków (which I have visited before). Whilst Kraków is a beautiful city, it’s not exactly a budget destination anymore. It has become popular so the prices are not very different to western Europe.

Gdańsk on the other hand was very cheap and seemed to have more domestic tourists than international. So if you want to go somewhere in Poland that is affordable and not crowded with tourists, then I would recommend Gdańsk.
