Gdansk for Valentine’s Day 2013 – Amber for her, Zywiec for him

Fancy somewhere different, beautiful and very affordable for Valentine’s Day this February? Why not head off for a romantic getaway to pretty Gdansk on the Baltic Coast in Poland?

…. and only a short 2hr flight later and only around £300 per couple (hotel + flight!!!), you could be enjoying beautiful city views like this on a 3 night long weekend break: (with maybe a bit more snow 🙂 )

For her: nothing beats hours of gorgeous Amber jewellery shopping for the ladies … plus spa hotels, Artus court, great panorama views and seaside strolls

For him: Zywiec (of course!), Westerplatte WW2 peninsula, boats, trams and a Museum of Torture 🙂 … and a cheap price! 😉

Here’s a webcam to see the infamous Gdansk Dluga Ulica (Long Street) with its beautiful townhouses: http://oognet.pl/content/details/725 …. this is where you could be strolling arm in arm (or hugging as it’s quite cold!) before popping into one of the multitude of Amber shops.
