Gdańsk, Mariacka

I wanted to start my today's post with saying a big thank you to all of you who have been reading this blog and leaving all those friendly comments. I didn't realize blogging could be so much fun and it is with your support I came to understand how to make it even more so :)

Some of you mentioned you were interested in the city where I live... I've already posted about a couple of nice places around here (Jozef K & Indygo)... but not about Tricity itself, which definitely also deserves my full attention. Tricity consists of Gdańsk (which is the city I live in), Gdynia (the city where I work) and Sopot (a great place to go out and party :P). Gdańsk has a lovely old town and Mariacka is definitely my absolutely favourite street here:

This street is the most magic and special one for me of many other streets of Gdańsk old town. Although only 185m long - it is full of small art galleries, amber shops and of course wonderful vintage cafes, one of which I'm going to write about very soon ;) Of course there is so much more to see in the city, but could this street alone be a good reason for you to come and visit Gdańsk? Judge by yourself...

I also want to share my excitement because today was my lucky day to win all these gorgeous treasures from Roc, Troc and Recup blog. Thank you very much, Floss, for the give away fun! I really recommend her blog, where Floss writes about her interest in vintage and second hand stuff, about making things, her own little projects and everyday excitements... and she adds great pictures of all of this! (Also check out the 'lovely blog award' she gave me to the right :))

Hi Olga,
The pictures you posted are absolutely beautiful. Suddenly Gdansk reminds me Prague, where I was last September. Those streets are streets for lovers. They look so romantic with that old style and that foggy atmosphere. All of them suggest romance and a nice candle dinner. You are really tempting me to run to Gdansk to visit the city. Maybe we will see each other one these days, sooner than we have dreamed of. You shouldn’t post more pictures about Gdansk because I’m falling in love with your city. :) I loved the pictures and I'm looking forward to see some more, of course! A big hug, TI
p.s. I sent you a mail! Bye

Hello Olga
I enjoy your beautiful blog.
I have never been to abroad except New Zealand.
So I imagine your country.
And I am dreaming walking your city.
Thank you for fascinating photo.

Thanks Fernando - there will be more pictures of Gdansk - definitely ;)

Thanks TI, it is great that you like it. I don't think Gdansk can be compared to Prague - Prague has a bigger old town, still there are things to do around here - so if you would like to come - just let me know :)

Hi Sky Trail - it is nice to meet you and welcome :) Thanks for your words of encouragement!

Polski oczywiscie - tak jak kazdy inny jezyk - jest tutaj mile widziany :) Musze jednak zrobic mala korekte i powiedziec, ze nie jestem polka...chocioz w Gdansku mieszkam juz od 3 lat. Fajnie, ze wpadles 'do mnie' - niestety nie pokazuje mi sie link do twojego bloga w twoim profilu - chyba ze tak zrobiles, wiec jedyne co moge zrobic - to odpowiedziec ci tutaj. Pozdrawiam!

O, Ogla. I love old streets and towns. Now I wish I could just get to Gdansk and *smell* and feel this very lovely town for myself.
