Public transport in Gdansk is a convenient way to explore the city. The fares are acceptable, and if there are no traffic jams caused by some roadworks, accidents or extreme weather, it’s pretty punctual. All the buses and most of the trams are modern, with air-conditioning in summer and heating in winter.
Not as spectacular as in Sydney and not as hot as in Rio de Janeiro, but still – if you happen to be in Gdansk on the New Year’s Eve, it is worth to check what to do on that special night. This year’s celebration of New Year’s Eve in Gdansk will be a bit different from the previous years. First of all, there will be no spectacular fireworks, as Gdansk authorities decided on laser lights instead. This is to ease the animals, that are frightened by the noise they can’t understand. The other difference is moving some events out of the Main Town. Thus, the celebration will take place in four districts. All events below are free!
Gdansk Airport (Lech Walesa Airport) is easy accessible from city centre, as well as from Sopot and Gdynia. Getting to and from Gdansk Airport is easy and cheap both ways – you can get to all those places very easy and quite cheap if you decide to use public transport.
