Gdańsk among the world’s most attractive cities

One of the most famous portals dedicated to tourism, TripAdvisor, has published the ranking of the best tourist destinations in the world. On the list, which included as many as 296 positions, there was one Polish city, which achieved the 5th position - Gdańsk!

The ranking of the best tourist destinations entitled “Destinations on the Rise”, which is published every year by TripAdvisor, is created on the basis of the opinions of the travellers from around the world and the increase in the number of positive opinions given by people who visit a certain city. For example, accommodation, restaurants and monuments are assessed. Gdańsk achieved the 5th position – the highest one among all European cities.

- We were glad to hear that tourism attractiveness of Gdańsk was appreciated once again. We are continuously developing our tourist offer and promoting our city abroad. That is why, we are even more pleased with high positions in rankings created by our guests. It is worth recalling that last year we achieved the third position in European Best Destination plebiscite – said Paweł Adamowicz, the Mayor of Gdańsk.

Among the sites, which according to tourists cannot be missed, there are the Main City (called “the old town in Gdańsk”), the Museum of the Second World War and St. Mary's Church. However, as many as 296 tourist attractions in total were taken into account, out of which every attraction was assessed by Internet users.

The ranking included:

  • Ishigaki, Japan
  • Kapaa, Hawaii, USA
  • Nairobi, Kenya
  • Halifax, Canada
  • Gdańsk, Poland
  • San Jose, Costa Rica
  • Riga, Latvia
  • Rovinj, Croatia
  • Nerja, Spain
  • Casablanca, Marocco

This is another distinction for our city, which – together with Pomeranian Voivodship – has recently been considered as the most effective, dynamic and “best performing” big city (the ranking concerned cities and regions) in Europe. “Best-performing Large Cities in Europe” ranking, the matter at hand, was prepared by Milken Institute think-tank.
