The latest mobile application SmartTour will make it possible for you to learn about the most beautiful corners of Gdańsk and their fascinating history. You just need to have a smartphone to go on a fascinating journey through the 1000 years’ old Gdańsk!
SmartTour is a guide for mobile phones. In addition to a very convenient form of ticket purchase, it enables you to select a sightseeing path and guides you through the city, a museum or a gallery.
“Tourists want to stay up to date. Most of them are willing to try out technical novelties if using them is simple and makes their life easier. And this is what SmartTour offers”, maintains the President of the Gdańsk Tourist Organization, Łukasz Wysocki.
What makes the Smart Tour application different than the others?
Three aspects are particularly worthy of attention among many characteristics distinguishing SmartTour from earlier solutions of that type.
The first aspect refers to the way in which contents are generated. Thanks to a special platform, they are generated by different organizations responsible for tourism in the city or in cultural institutions. They know best what the most beautiful or unique things that they can show are. The tool is excellent both for the guiding of outdoor tours and inside buildings.
The variety of paths is another aspect. SmartTour can operate in the form of a traditional guide and it can also become a role-playing game making it possible to lead an investigation, solve riddles or puzzles. Everything depends on the imagination of the person creating the sightseeing path.
The last aspect refers to the fact that the application operates in various places. We do not have to download a separate application for each city or facility. Thanks to the cooperation of qb-mobile, the Gdańsk Tourist Organization, Gdynia and Wejherowo Town Halls and the Sopot Seaside Resort, SmartTour already operates in the Tricity and its vicinity while the number of cities and facilities interested in its introduction is growing, especially because the guide is free.
4 sightseeing paths!
- Traditional sightseeing. The application operates similarly to a traditional audio guide. It leads you from one point to another inside or outside of buildings. Thanks to your smartphone, you can listen to a guide, see additional photos or read some interesting trivia
- A sentimental walk. This type of sightseeing will make it possible to discover memories related to locations. You will listen to stories, reports of witnesses of past events while standing in the same place where they stood years ago…
- Role-playing game. You can play different roles. To discover new places, you will have to solve puzzles, draw conclusions, open locks, guess passwords and ciphers. Sightseeing does not have to be boring! You can do your sightseeing and have fun like in the best escape room :)
- Recreation. Paths in this section are the best recipe for having fun. Let yourself be guided to the best restaurants, pubs, discos and other recreational facilities and have fun!
Additionally, the application has a “In the vicinity” function thanks to which you can quickly and easily find restaurants, pubs, hotels and other tourist facilities near your current location.
You will not have to worry about the ticket purchase anymore. Thanks to Smart-Tour, you will buy a ticket easily by using your phone!

What is more, SmartTour will also make it possible for you to buy a Tourist Card”, informs Michał Sarnowski from qb-mobile.
