Perched in northern Poland?s coastline, Gda?sk is a historic city that prides itself on being one of the most picturesque cities. Abounding with rich heritage and history, holidays in Gda?sk are favoured for being among the best destinations in Europe for a weekend city break. Given the city?s famous connection to the sea, travel to Gda?sk is replete with waterfront attractions in addition to several other interesting places to explore as well. One of the most famous attractions in Gdansk is Gradova Hill. Standing 50 meters high, Gradowa Hill is an interesting place to visit and it?s one of the more unusual sights in Gda?sk owing to its historical past. The hill is an excellent panoramic point from where you can see the spectacular views of the entire city. Known as the Jerusalem Bastion in the 20th century, Gradowa Hill still has many rooms that were used for military purposes. The Hill also has a science center called Hewelianum Center in honour of a very famous astronomer in Poland. Located in the heart of Gdansk is St. Mary church. Also known as the Mariacka Basilica, St. Mary Church is a huge gothic church. This church is also the tallest building in the city and can house up to 25,000 people. While the church is simple from the outside, the interiors of it are extremely beautiful and visitors can climb right to the top of the church by climbing the 409 steps leading to the top where they can catch a stunning view of the city - a sight well worth the climb.
