Lech Walesa Airport is one of Poland’s 15 passenger airports, and it’s the gateway to the Baltic coast and the region of Pomerania. Lech Walesa Airport serves cities all over Europe, even as far as the Atlantic island of Tenerife. Accommodation near Lech Walesa Airport ranges from modern business hotels to cosy guesthouses.
Lech Walesa Airport has various places to eat and shop before you board your flight. Stop for a coffee or a drink in one of the bistros, and check out the fashion and jewellery in the boutiques before you fly. It’ll be your last chance to stock up on Baltic amber jewellery before you leave, too.
Lech Walesa Airport is seven miles west of Gdansk. Buses and trains connect the airport to the city centre, as well as the seaside resort of Sopot and the port city of Gdynia. These three cities form what’s known as Tri-City (Trójmiasto in Polish), and are lumped together in most of the region’s public transport timetables.
Wander through the main town (Glówne Miasto) and you wouldn’t know that it had been virtually destroyed in 1945 at the very end of the Second World War. The reconstruction is a thing of beauty, with the cobbled squares and architecture looking as they did 300 and 400 years ago. Check out the narrow cobbled lane of Mariacka, one of the most enchanting in the city. Stroll along the alluring Long Market – known as Dlugi Targ – which is filled with restored townhouses from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Gdansk waterfront area is another place to go if you enjoy relaxed ambles along the wide promenade filled with cafes and galleries. Nearby is the National Maritime Museum, which includes the unmistakable sight of the Gdansk Crane (Zuraw). This symbol of the city was built in the 15th century and is a reminder of Gdansk’s importance as a Medieval shipping port. You can climb up the wooden crane for views of the city.
Just north of Gdansk is the seaside resort of Sopot, which has been attracting fashionable visitors since the early 19th century. There’s something for everyone here – a combination of elegant villas, colourful ice-cream cafes, huge expanses of sandy beach and a large number of nightclubs. It’s also home to the longest wooden pier in Europe. As soon as the weather warms up, you’re certain to find much of the population of Gdansk heading to Sopot.
Carry on past Sopot and you reach Gdynia, a relatively modern port city built in the 1920s when the city of Gdansk was part of Germany. You’ll find handsome Art Deco architecture, along with an energetic nightlife and some of the loveliest beaches along this stretch of the Baltic coast.
Wherever you’re staying in Gdansk, you’ll find flying to and from Lech Walesa Airport easy and straightforward. It’s also useful if you plan to explore further along northern Poland’s Baltic coast.
