The Main Town is today's architectural center of Gdansk, as opposed to the Old Town. It is one of my personal favorite old towns, a painstaking post-WWII reconstruction of post-WWII Flemish-influenced buildings, a legacy of the Hanseatic trading league and the cosmopolitan impact of the many traders who made fortunes off of the port city.

The sheer hard work after the war to restore the city makes one appreciate Gdansk even more, as it certainly is something people can enjoy for many years to come.

I find the atmosphere the streets create very cozy, intimate, and enchanting.
