A Strategic Location

Gdańsk’s history is one tied directly to its central strategic location. This is probably most well known in relationship to the start of World War II; but this is modern history for this city on the sea.  Gdańsk marks where the Vistula River trading routes meet the Baltic Sea and this trade and strategic location of markets where goods like grain and amber could connect to the sea has made Gdansk a beautiful, well situated, and dynamic place.

Today, it served as another strategic location – the start of the Coastal Cities course. Gdańsk has been a perfect start to our comparative approach with beautiful weather, a vibrant city center, and a welcoming community.
