We have the Poland Eyewitness Travel book so we are following it to find the sights. First we see several churches that are all impressive. Then it was time for a break with waffles! But we really wanted to see the wooden crane that was capable of lifting 4 tones during it’s time. We get to the water and zero in on it and go for a look. It is really awesome. The crane was run by men walking on the great wheels to turn the cranks and raise the load
After we left, our posse found us! These were the well meaning and kind ladies from yesterday who made sure we were on the right bus and right train in order to get to Gdansk. They were touring around and heading for a boat that would take them around the harbor. They wanted us to come along but unfortunately, the tour was just in German so we might have seen the sights but wouldn’t have understood anything. Not as much fun. Been there and done that already in other German speaking towns.
Had some pierogi for lunch. It was good but very reminiscent of Korean dumplings. Continued following the map and book to get to the main tourist street, Dlugi Targ. The houses along this street are gorgeously decorated. Just beautiful. However since we started rather late and had to go after the train tickets, the museums were closing. We’ll have to hit them another day. Made a dodge over to St. Mary’s and climbed the tower which pretty much wiped us out.
It was a very good day in a lovely city.
