So this is the building of the University of Gdansk (Uniwersytet Gdański), where I tried to gain more knowledge about that beautiful, but difficult language. It sure has been a wonderful time to study in that modern University. I mean how awesome is it, when you can reach the beach of the Baltic Sea by tram right from your University?

You already know this view, but last time I showed a photo from the sunset. Well, there was a second day that I came to Gdansk, and this time it was a bit later. As I wasn’t alone, I couldn’t spend enough time on that shot as I would have liked to. Read more!
Another photo from the Tricity (Trójmiasto), this time it’s from the beach around Sopot. The trip there was really good and I’m looking forward to go there soon again as there is now a direct train connection from Berlin to Gdansk. The colors of the sunset on the baltic sea have been stunning. More information on the photo!
That Beauty is over 100 years old. It was in 1909 when it was built in Hamburg and named Prinzess Eitel Friedrich. After WW I the ship was taken as reparation by Great Britain and brought to France. But because they didn’t want to refurbish it, they sold it and the buyer was Poland. In Poland the Dar Pomorza was used as a training ship for long time and today it is a Museum ship in Gdynia.
When I was in Gdansk (Gdańsk), Poland, for a language and culture course, our schedule was so packed that we barely had any free time. You have to know that this area is known as Tricity (Trójmiasto) consisting of the cities Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. We were accommodated somewhere between Gdansk and Sopot, so every time I wanted to take some pictures I first had to catch a train. So in the end I only managed to see se old town of Gdansk twice, but at least I could capture a nice sunset. The picture was taken on the bridge in front of the green gate (zielona brama).
