There’s a new video blog at the New York Times called the Frugal Traveler. Week 10 is a visit to Gdansk Poland.
Why Gdansk? Why not Krakow? Unlike both Gdansk and Warsaw, Krakow was not totally destroyed during the Second World War, and its old town is just that — old. Perhaps the choice of Gdansk came from week 9’s spot: Vilnius, Lithuania. It’s a shorter hop from Vilnius to Gdansk than Vilnius to Krakow.
Still, it’s good to see Poland getting included like this.
