Photos of the day: Gdansk. A Flemish note in the Baltic Sea
Gdansk was and is one of the most important ports in northern Europe. It was a member of the Hanseatic Union which from the 12th to the 17th century included the commercial cities-ports of the North Sea and the Baltic.
That’s why Gdansk’s architecture reminds more Flanders than Poland, as the city was included in the Polish kingdom quite late.
