5 Ideas for Valentine’s Day

February 14, St. Valentine’s Day, is just around the corner. Several years ago Valentine’s Day became huge on the list of the most popular holidays in Poland, and has remained on top ever since. Each year brings more ways you can spend this special time, and we have selected 5 ideas for that special romantic celebration with your loved one.



Let’s start with something classic

First is that old, but still magical idea: a romantic dinner. Of course there are plenty of choices for where to go for dinner, but we highly recommend the Valentine’s Day dinner at Eliksir (Wrzeszcz, at ul. M. Hemara 1). The chef there is a master at both combining flavours and pairing food with drink. He is so good ... that you are sure to fall in love with it.

Tasting menu prices:

5 courses | 99 zl
7 courses | 179 zl
5 courses + 4 drinks | 189 zl
7 courses + 6 drinks | 289 zl

The Valentine’s Day package must be booked in advance.

It is worth noting that Eliksir is a special place on the food map of the Tricity. It is part restaurant, part cocktail lounge and part independent event space. Food pairing, the art of combining food with drinks, is the main theme of the restaurant.



Nothing can beat a romantic concert

The Polish Baltic Philharmonic offers the opportunity for a romantic date to the accompaniment of music and song. The two-hour concert will take you on a wonderful musical journey through the most beautiful of stories, love operettas and musicals performed by a unique Polish band - The Singing Kaczmarek Family. Enjoy the most popular and favourite arias and musicals, plus some musical surprises by Adam and Wojciech Kaczmarek. The band will be accompanied by the “Alla Vienna” chamber orchestra, conducted by Prof. Adam Manijak.

The concert starts at 7 pm on February 14. Tickets (65-120 zl) are available at the ticket desk of the Polish Baltic Frederic Chopin Philharmonic in Gdansk (ul. Olowianka 1, 80-001 Gdansk, tel. 58 320 62 50) and at www.bilety24.pl)


Cinema is always a good idea

If you prefer a romantic movie to a concert, you have a number of choices. The Helios Forum Gdansk cinema has planned a whole night of romance for the Valentine’s Day movie marathon. The Planeta Singli marathon starts at 11 pm on February 15. All… 3… parts… If you are in the mood (and have enough endurance) to see it, the tickets are 36 zloty (regular) and 32 zloty (reduced).

And if you are not a fan of Valentine’s Day...

Yes, yes, yes. There are also some interesting opportunities for those who do not enjoy all that goes with Valentine’s Day. One cinema is ready to welcome you to another movie marathon, this time a horror one. However, it is hard to tell whether it will be scarier than the Planeta Singli marathon...

At 10 pm on February 15, the Multikino Gdansk (Al. Zwyciestwa 14) is hosting its Horror Movie Marathon, as part of the Anti-Valentine’s Day celebration.

Stay and watch four new and scary horror films, including two premieres: St. Agatha, from the director of Saw and The Prodigy, from the director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

Tickets: 35 and 29 (reduced) zloty.
