St Dominic’s Fair i Gdansk i 2024.

Detaljene om St Dominic’s Fair i Gdansk i 2024 er ikke offentliggjort ennå, så vi vet ikke så mye. Det vi kan være sikre på, er at arrangementet starter 27. juli og varer i tre uker frem til 18. august. Byen kommer til å være overfylt som aldri før, så du kan allerede nå begynne å lete etter overnatting i Gdansk under den 763. St. Dominikusmessen i Gdansk i 2024!

Kort om historien til St. Dominicus-messen i Gdansk

St. Dominicus-markedet i Gdansk er et av de største kommersielle friluftsarrangementene i Europa. Den ble etablert i 1260 av pave Alexander IV, og har siden den gang blitt arrangert årlig i Gdansks gater – med en kort pause under og etter andre verdenskrig. St Dominic’s Fair er 763 års tradisjon blandet med modernitet. Et unikt klima, de beste polske håndverkerne, kreatørene og samlerne og originale regionale og internasjonale retter. Arrangementet trekker hvert år turister fra inn- og utland til Gdansk. Den unike atmosfæren i et unikt historisk område, de komfortable shoppingmulighetene, de attraktive utstillingsstandene, de ulike rasteplassene og det rikholdige kunstneriske programmet er arrangementets sterkeste sider.

Du finner det detaljerte programmet for St. Dominic-messen i Gdansk det siste året på slutten av denne artikkelen, slik at du vet hva du kan forvente deg i år.

Hva finner du på Dominikusmessen i Gdansk?

I løpet av de tre ukene dominikanermessen varer, forandrer Gdansk seg fullstendig. Byen er svært populær om sommeren, men når messen starter, er det enda mer folksomt enn vanlig. Dominikusmessen i Gdansk – Dluga Street blir skikkelig overfylt

De fleste gatene i hovedbyen er stengt for biler og er fulle av boder og butikker. Her finner du alt – klær, ravsmykker, gamle tyske hjelmer og sverd. Sistnevnte finner du på flea market – i Dlugie Ogrody Street. Her er det også mange suvenirer å velge mellom.

Messens kommersielle karakter suppleres av kultur-, underholdnings- og musikkarrangementer hver dag. De viktigste finner sted i begynnelsen av messen og på slutten. Det finnes også matboder og food trucks i gatene (Szeroka Street, Targ Rybny), der du kan spise lokale, kasjubiske eller polske og europeiske retter.

Det finnes også et område med sitteplasser der du kan spise eller drikke det du nettopp har kjøpt.

Men vær forsiktig, for mange av setene ligger under trærne, og det hender at fugler slipper noe ned fra trærne.

I år er messen flyttet til flere områder av byen – fra Motlawa-elven til Dlugie Ogrody-gaten. På grunn av renoveringen av Motlava-elvebredden vil det ikke være noen boder der i år.

Gdansk fulgte Berlinbjørnenes idé, og du kan finne Gdansk Fair Roosters rundt om i byen. Du har ikke lov til å sitte på dem, men ta gjerne så mange bilder du vil.

Hva bør du unngå under Dominikanermessen i Gdansk?

Det meste av sentrum er stengt for biler, så det er absolutt best å la bilen stå utenfor Main Town. Det er også mye bråk i Main Town i disse dager, og de fleste barene holder åpent til sent på kvelden. Så hvis du vil hvile under oppholdet, bør du bestille hotell et annet sted.

Dominic’s Fair besøkes ikke bare av turister, men også av fickpockets, som prøver å utnytte kaoset på trikkeholdeplassene og folkemengden som samles for å se noen uvanlige attraksjoner – gambling er en av dem.

Here we want to talk about things such as tolerance, openness, freedom, blurring generational differences and bringing people together cross-culturally. To talk about important things, but in a light-hearted formula of a summer, holiday atmosphere. A place to organise concerts, workshops for ambient events, to create installations together. During the week we entertain and integrate. It’s diverse here – operetta intertwines with karaoke and DJ sets, workshops for children with activities for seniors.
