Walk through the autumn Gdańsk

September 16, 2021

For several days I have been feeling more and more that autumn is approaching us with great strides. Increased traffic of cars on the streets, crowds of students on school playgrounds, and finally mushroom pickers encountered during a forest walk, proudly presenting the trophies in the baskets - eye-catching porcupines, goats and butterflies. And the first threads of Indian summer, floating freely in the golden rays of the sun, clearly signal that nature is slowly getting ready for sleep.

For most of us, this September time is a return to routine and a certain normality after many months of pandemic struggles. Time to rest at home after intensive days at school and at work.

Postcard from autumn Gdańsk

September 1, 2021

- What do you like the sea for? - I heard. A stream of thoughts, memories, images flashed through my head.

- For everything - smiling heartily, I glanced at the horizon.

The answer, trivial as it may seem, is exactly what I feel. The sea made itself at home in my soul a long time ago. And, perhaps, it's not the most popular opinion - I love it after the summer season. The second half of August, September, October and November have their own, more strict, but also majestic laws.

It is then that the sea seems to me the most beautiful and has a special power of attraction. Storms appearing more and more often, dark blue clouds towering proudly over the turbulent surface, sunbeams piercing through them, wind tugging on the hair and sandy spaces, with few tourists looking for the same experiences and emotions.

Shipyard from the water perspective

Do you remember which trip I invited you on last week? If not entirely, and you are hungry for sensations, I encourage you to follow the description of the cruise on our blog. I will introduce you to this story briefly. At that time, we sailed in a Galar, a replica of Polish river boats widespread in the 18th century, used for single transport of goods, i.e. salt, grain, soap and lime. On board, along with other daredevils, I crossed the waters of the Motława and Nowa Motława, and we saw Gdansk from a completely different, noteworthy, perspective.

Gdańsk from the water perspective

The holiday season at the Polish seaside is in full swing! We also started the summer with a bang in the Tri-City, because the temperatures only occasionally drop below 20 degrees Celsius, which makes everyone thirsty for hot sand, sunbathing and swimming in the waves happy. However, Gdańsk not only lives by the sea and has many other interesting tricks up its sleeve. For those who are looking for a respite by the water, but not necessarily on the vast beaches or jumping among the Baltic snowmen, I have very good news. Just like for lovers of learning about history anew, and above all, a look at the famous face of the city from... an unknown perspective - the perspective of water.

I invite you to the report from the cruise!

Holiday on four paws

May 11, 2021

There are only a few weeks left until the holidays! Spring sun is slipping into our bedrooms earlier and earlier, reminding us that it's high time to plan your vacation. Many of us will go on a trip with loved ones: spouses, partners, children, parents, with friends or solo. But, but - are I sure to mention all those who are happy at the thought of rest, carefree, beautiful views and being by our side? Definitely not!

A few words about hotels during the lockdown - guide

March 31, 2021

Open hotels or closed hotels? In recent weeks, I have received at least a dozen such questions from friends, acquaintances and family members. I also participated in several discussions in which we tried to determine what the current regulations allow us to do and what we cannot do. I thought that since the topic is alive among my relatives, it may also interest our guests, readers and people looking for answers to the most bothering questions. With you in mind, I have prepared this short booking guide during the next lockdown.

Museums in Gdańsk - the amber route to the King of the Celts

March 17, 2021

Museums in the Pomeranian Voivodeship closed again? Unfortunately, this is a pandemic truth. They are closed to visitors until at least March 28, 2021. But does that make it not worth writing about them? From my point of view, absolutely not! These additional two weeks give us time to get to know the museums in Gdańsk and the Tri-City better and to visit in April those objects and exhibitions that made the greatest impression on us, interested us or simply - we have not been to them yet. And that museums occupy a special place on the tourist map, I don't think I need to convince anyone. All the statistics from recent years clearly show that the number of museums and museum branches is constantly growing, and there are more and more visitors each year. So let's join this large group of visitors as soon as possible!

Museums in Gdańsk - modern about history

February 23, 2021

Museums have a special place on the tourist map. It is in them that we remember history anew, we learn about facts that we have not heard about before. Thanks to them, we can move back in time to both very distant and very close periods. Museum exhibitions provide an opportunity to better understand the past. Participation in history is also a great tool for a better interpretation of the situation, empathizing with it, sometimes it allows you to understand the motives behind actions and events.

Winter adventure with children in the Tri-City

January 26, 2021

Hu hu ha! Hu hu ha! Our winter…. pretty good! Children like winter. For many adults, this statement may seem surprising, because they often associate them mainly with clearing snow from cars or a backyard pavement, but for the youngest the vision of making a snowman, making an eagle or an angel in the snow, rolling down a hill in white powder, and above all a battle snowballs with parents and friends are still very much anticipated. It is not without reason that the Disney's "Frozen" has enjoyed unwavering popularity for many years among the younger and slightly older ones, and has just got its second part. I strongly encourage, despite the January season, to follow the example of Elsa, Anna, Olaf the snowman and Sven's reindeer and try to find winter beauty. Let's help children create beautiful memories that we surely have ourselves! So I invite you to the Tri-City to check what winter has hidden for us in the forest, on the hill and… in a hiding place.

Winter evening in Gdańsk

23 December 2020

2020 will go down in history for many reasons. The catchy slogans "2020 cannot be forgotten" or "2020 still in shape", did not leave the headlines, were the reason for writing articles, entries, and also a great opportunity to create countless memes. The Year 2020 itself has been changed by all cases, and its ending is still very exciting. For many of us, saying goodbye to him will not be particularly sad and difficult. Regardless of whether the last months have been gentle with us, have initiated positive changes, or we do not like them excessively, let's look with hope and make the best of this winter time.

Lockdown

Lockdown, November 24, 2020
I love business trips! Although I did not go to them often, I always looked forward to another trip with great joy. Everything for a simple reason - after work, even very late, you are still in a new place, maybe for the first time or after a long break, and this creates opportunities for walks, getting to know cities in their natural, not only weekend, rhythm. Do you like business trips or treat them only as a task of significant importance for you or your company? Or maybe you combine them with the opportunity to rest and explore new places and people?

Some ideas for running lovers

Actively in the Tri-City, 9 November 2020

November comes unexpectedly. Over time, we get used to shorter days and brighter mornings. Outside the windows more and more leaves are blown in the wind, fog rises above the meadows, and the vision of a warm blanket and an interesting book creeps into our thoughts. You can wait this moment and rest. You can also roll up your long sleeves and take care of your health, immunity, good condition, as well as cultivate certain habits in order to wake up in a better shape in spring than in the previous year.

Some ideas for cycling enthusiasts

Actively in the Tri-City, 12 October 2020

Yellow and red leaves sway in the trees, chestnuts and acorns fall straight into the narrow streets, and the iodine-rich sea breeze brings a feeling of refreshment on a lazy afternoon. These little signals remind us that the golden Polish autumn has already arrived at the seaside and is slowly trying to make ourselves at home in our heads and hearts. Let's give her a chance!

In the mainstream of history

A family weekend in September, 14 September 2020

After a day full of attractions, the youngest dreamed their childhood dreams. Still in their imagination, they were building from sand, splashing each other with sea water, jumping on stones and imitating the sounds of animals. In the morning, refreshed, with a smile on their faces, they woke up and quietly climbed into their sleepy parents' bed. The beginning of the day belonged to the family. The morning is a great time to tell what each of them liked the most, what impressions they will share with their friends in the kindergarten, and what attractions are waiting for today.

In the rhythm of the sun

Family weekend in September, 31 August 2020

Families I know from different parts of Poland often ask me how to best plan a holiday by the sea and what places are worth seeing in Gdańsk. I cordially invite you to read a short story about a dream weekend at the Baltic Sea, serving as an inspiration that I have prepared for Ola - mother, Krzysztof - father, and Aniela and Adaś for their upcoming holiday.

Author of the Grano Hotels blog Daria Bałdyga

Hi! I am Daria and I want to tell you a few words about myself.

Ever since I was a child, I loved spinning the globe and wandering my finger on the map. That's probably why I became a geographer. I was able to combine my passion with work. For many years I have run and organized themed camps for children and adolescents, playing the role of a pirate captain and exploring the secrets of survival, to become a MICE coordinator today. On weekends, you can meet me as a facilitator of short orienteering marches for families or extreme rallies for adults. I love my border collie Inari madly. I train agility with her and throw Frisbee. Her wet nose motivates me every day to expand my knowledge of the canine world. I like being active and on the move. I run and cycle in the woods, backpacking in the mountains, and wandering off-road. When I close my eyes, I see the northern lands: beautiful, wild landscapes, space and the warmth of candles placed in the windows. I like to wander around old cities and delve into their history. After an active day, I gladly assume the yoga pose of a pigeon or cheer on the developing leaves of my potted flowers. I compulsively collect crayons, felt-tip pens, pens, notebooks, stickers and washi tapes, creating a bullet journal. I love to hide under a blanket with a cup of tea and read. I look longingly for fiction and reportages. From time to time I also write short forms about emotions that accompany us in our lives.
