Located on Poland’s northern coast, Gdansk is a city known for its rich history, quaint seaside vibe and for being one of the country’s most beautiful locations. All in all, it’s the perfect destination for a city break.
While most tend to visit the seaside town in summer, thanks to an outrageously good Ryanair deal, I found myself strolling Gdansk’s cobblestone streets in late-January, where temperatures hovered around -10C and lounging on the beach was completely out of the question.
It was cold, but the sun was shining, the air was clear and the city was alive. The conditions were perfect for exploring this beautiful Baltic city. So, I did what any good adventure does: I bundled up and set out.
Although the days were cold, I wasn’t thanks to a few excellent wardrobe choices. If you’re planning on visiting Gdansk (or Poland) in winter, here are the six key pieces I recommend you bring to keep you warm while looking stylish on your trip.
