I discovered Tczew accidentally because you can’t travel to the center of Poland, let’s to Warsaw from Tri-Cities ( Gdansk – Sopot - Gdynia), not being in the town. Although from a carriage window on the railway station it seems to be a dull and sleepy place, in fact it can surprise you. By the way now the train station is being rebuilt and refurnished.
Many foreign people go through Tczew to Malbork, which is obviously more famous of it’s the Teutonic castle or many head to Pelpin because of a medieval cathedral church, not knowing that in Tczew you can find both things and more.
Anyway you must be curious of provincial towns in the north of Poland, because if you are looking for elegance a la Paris or frenzy, urban atmosphere of Berlin or New York , you can be disappointed.
