This wooden, old looking sailing ship is an impressive replica of an original two-masted sailing ship. I have seen it full of visitors onboard, on the Motlawa River, steering towards Westerplatte and back. Unfortunatelly it didn't travel under full sail. If I had more time I'd take a cruise on the ship called Westerplatte.

I am not an expert in old sailing ships but I always like to look at them even when they are only, sometimes kitchy, replicas built for fan and transportation of visitors. I have seen a lot of them for example in some tourist resorts of Turkey and Tunisia.



Address: Dlugie Pobrzeze, Gdansk
Directions: Walk eastwards Dluga street, enter the longitudinal square called Dlugi Targ, pass through the Green Gate to see the Motlawa river. About 25-30 min. on foot from the Main Railway Station (Gdansk Glowny).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
