Gdansk is a city on the north coast of Poland, famous for its old town which is home to the city's major landmarks such as St John's Church, the Great Mill and the Great Armoury, and is itself one of the oldest cities in Poland. The Gdansk region is also well known for processing the vast quantities of amber, (a gem which changes colour depending on how old it is),which is found along the coast. As Poland's major sea port, the city has benefitted from centuries of strong trade along the European shipping routes.
Hire a car in Gdansk during the summer and we'd definitely recommend making your way to the Shakespeare Festival. This is an international theatre festival that is held every August to celebrate the work of world-famous playwright William Shakespeare as well as his Elizabethan contemporaries.
With three different universities in the city, this part of Poland excels in its academic aspirations. As a hub of student activity, there's plenty to appeal to a young audience, as well as many educational museums and galleries to indulge your taste in culture. Check out the Museum of Modern Art set inside Abbots Palace to see some beautiful paintings and sculptures from around the world.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
