If you have already seen Neptune, Długi Targ and other Gdansk hits, it’s time for Gdańsk not so obvious. I will take you on a journey to my personal mysterious city. We will go through two districts: Lower Town and Biskupia Górka. Why there? Because there are hidden nooks and crannies, unexplained puzzles and stories that will delight you. This will not be a historical lecture full of dates, unintelligible names and surnames of people you do not know. This will be the story of Gdańsk told the adventures of extraordinary people. I will take you to places where history, mystery, adventure and special people mix like spices in a good sauce. So that you can touch, smell and taste the city in your own unique way.
