Back to the past

COVID-19 seems to be fading slowly. More countries are opening their borders and now people are getting out of their homes. Although we still have safety precautions to follow, it finally looks like we are slowly returning to life as we knew it before the pandemic.

The virus cleared out the most popular destinations almost overnight. Pictures of empty streets in Venice, New York, London and other cities became a regular feature in the media. Canals in Venice without boats, deserted Times Square or Trafalgar Square. Our Gdansk was similar – the streets of the Main City and the beaches, usually so lively in spring, but this year they remained empty. Even though nature began to come alive around us and was it getting sunnier and greener by the day, everyone living in Gdansk had to stay at home for many days. Places that were formerly crowded began to feel disturbing and resemble the set from some post-apocalyptic movie.

Fortunately everything is now returning to normal, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that COVID-19 soon becomes nothing more than a bad memory. In the meantime, we have selected some photos that show different locations in Gdansk at the peak of the pandemic, and then later on – when the virus began to fade away.

We are returning to normality – see for yourself!
