Why to study in Gdańsk?
What makes Gdansk so unique?
Gdansk is the oldest and biggest city in northern Poland. Together with Gdynia and Sopot, it forms metropolitan area known as the ‘Tricity’.
Gdansk is the place where Lech Walesa initiated the process that led to the collapse of Communism.

Gdansk has much more to offer: the city’s cosmopolitan, open and tolerant atmosphere is a reflection of its history – Gdansk has not always been Polish and has changed hands between Poles and Germans no fewer than six times, as well as being independent for three separate periods. Some of the most known citizens of Gdansk include: Jan Heweliusz, Günther Grass, Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, Jan Bernard Bonifacio, Anton Möller  and Arthur Schopenhauer.

In the most recent history Gdansk was one of the host cities of the UEFA's "EURO 2012".

In 2013 we will be hosting the 28th edition of The Men's European Volleyball Championship. The matches will take place in Ergo Arena which can accommodate up to 12000 people.



The Tricity is a summer holiday destination attracting thousands of tourists drawn by the city’s magnificent architecture and the beautiful sandy beaches of the Baltic coast.

The Old Town in Gdansk, which boasts the largest brick-built church in the world, always makes a huge impression on visitors. Tourists are attracted to the city centre by the many restaurants, cafes, clubs, bars and amber shops.

Beyond Gdansk’s Old Town, a number of other destinations await travellers: the suburb of Oliwa hosts parks, a zoo, and a spectacular cathedral, while Sopot offers sandy beaches and nightlife. Gdynia provides some of the area's finest restaurants, trendy bars and a beautiful seashore.
