Following the Gdansk view points

Have you ever thought what Gdansk looks like from the height of over 100 metres? Or perhaps you like climbing and you want to see the city from somewhat different perspective? For active people, it will be an interesting idea to sightsee the city by climbing the highest peaks of which there are quite a few in Gdansk!

Bastions on the Motława River flow round (2/11)

Over the picturesque Motława River flow round there are earth fortifications - on the right the St. Gertrude Bastion  with casemates, and on the left - Bison Bastion (Żubr Bastion). Between them - the Lowland Gate of 1626, designed by the famous builder from Gdansk - Jan Strakowski. In the streets along the Motława River flow round we pass the remnants of defensive redoubts and bastions of the modern Gdansk - Wilk (Wolf), Wyskok, Miś (Bear), Dzik (Boar) and Królik (Rabbit). The last redoubt of the Gdansk fortifications is Żbik (Wildcat). Along the moat, on the embankments and bastions there are sidewalks and bicycle paths that have converted the former fortress areas into a specific city recreational park.
