Gdańsk is a beautiful city with a huge number of monuments, museums, galleries and other interesting places to visit. The old city looks stunning from above. You can see them - just go to the ferris wheel AmberSky on the island of granaries (Wyspa Spichrzów), the tower of the Main Town Hall or the tower of St Mary's Basilica. You can see more photos from Gdansk in the galleries: Gdansk by night, Summer in Gdańsk, Autumn in Gdańsk or Winter in Gdańsk.

Gdańsk Oliwa - Olivia Business Centre
Olivia Business Center in Gdansk at night. I have strange feelings when I look at these glass factories. Those who work there probably feel somehow honored - they can look at the world from modern office buildings and from above. For me, a man who escaped from the city and abandoned the corporation, it is a glass cage in which I would not be locked up ...
The Co-Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (the so-called St. Mary's Basilica) in the Old Town of Gdańsk. From this perspective, it looks like a giant brick ship sailing through "waves of tenement houses". The tower of St. Mary's Basilica was built in 1466 and is 77 meters high up to the edge of the roof. You can enter the observation deck on the tower - you only need to climb stairs with 409 steps. It is worth going there because the views are unforgettable.
December morning in the middle of the week is the perfect time to explore the city in peace. The rising sun gently illuminates the buildings - it is quiet and peaceful - just look and admire.
Panorama of Gdańsk: the Old Town, the Crane, the National Maritime Museum, the Sołdek ship and the Stara Motława river. You can see more winter photos in the gallery: Winter in Gdańsk.
I like the vividness of such pictures - with light mists and soft light, the further plans blur a bit as if they were painted with watercolors. Gdańsk like painted: St. Mary's Basilica and Main Town Hall, old town. A Christmas tree is already standing on the Long Market (Dlugi Targ) at Neptune .... Gdańsk is almost ready for Christmas. Now we're just waiting for snow...
The center of Gdańsk is in the controlled zone of the airport CTR (controlled traffic region), so before you start a drone flight, read the regulations carefully. First of all, you should not fly above 100 m.
