Local entertainment Gdansk (and the Tricity as a whole) is known for its concerts, festivals and cinemas. Check out where you will find a calendar with all the events in the area. Arts: Gdansk has a variety of museums to visit: the National Museum in Gdansk, Gdansk Museum, Archaeological Museum or Amber Museum. For music, you can visit Filharmonia Baltycka at Motlawa River. For ballet, Opera Baltycka. Gdynia Theatre offers fun musicals and comedies. Definitely worth checking out! For more alternative performances, Klub Zak in Oliwa has a wide range of music concerts or unusual dance performances. Lots of options! Cinemas: The biggest chain of cinemas in Poland is called Multikino which literally means - multicinema. Most films (unless for children) are not dubbed, so you don't have to worry if you are not fluent in Polish (yet). You can watch all the box office hits in English. Gdansk and Gdynia are well known for alternative film festivals. You need to search for them online or check out the programme of Kino Kameralne in Gdansk Centre or Klub Zak in Oliwa. Street markets: Eastern and Central Europe loves Christmas Markets and this is something you will definitely have a chance to see in Gdansk in December. You will be able to buy warm and cosy woollen slippers and jumpers straight from Gorale - the community from the Tatra mountains. When you are done with your shopping, go ahead and try some food from market stalls. During the summer, typically in around July and August, Gdansk Old Town turns into an old medieval market place (with a modern twist!) where all the craftsmen and artist come to show off their best skills and products. Jarmark Dominikanski, the annual Dominican Fair, is over 750 years old! Now that's called shopping tradition!
