I'd like to take you to Gdańsk, the city on the Baltic Sea, northern Poland. It's close to the former late medieval and modern bundary between West Slavic and Germanic lands.
The history of Gdańsk is very interesting and full of unexpected twists. It was ruled by Poland, Germany, at a period of time it was a free city, which belonged to no country. Now, Gdańsk is a part of 3 cities metropoly: Gdańsk, Gdynia, Sopot.

Gdańsk was established in IX century, so at the moment it has more than 1000 years! Even the smallest street in the old city can tell us incredibly interesting facts from that millenium. Did you know, that many XX century polish political leaders come from Gdańsk? For egzample, Lech Wałęsa - the Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1983.
