||MIKOLAIJKI - GDANSK
Today you will experience a very unique tour at the Elblag Canal that was named one of the Seven Wonders of Poland.
The canal was built in the 19th century. Since the difference in height between the lakes was too great for building
locks, several inclined planes were added to the canal system. That means that the boats partially transit the canal
by water and partially on rail tracks with a gauge of 3.27 meters. Later in the afternoon, we will arrive in Gdansk. (B,D)
Centuries as a major Baltic port, membership in the Hanseatic League, and wealthy merchants shaped Gdansk.
Today's quality of life and high living standard in the city sets Gdansk apart from many other Polish cities. The
flair of the city is unique and can be experienced during our city tour by coach. We will see Dutch-style buildings
dating back centuries and impressive modern architecture. The Highland Gate is the beginning of the Royal Route that

more places in the Old Town, at the Long Market, or at the Artus Court.(B,D)
