Gdańsk is the Polish maritime capital with the population nearing half a million. Lying on the Bay of Gdańsk and the southern cost of the Baltic Sea the city is a thousand years old. With its Hanseatic tradition, it has for ages played a major role in the commercial relationships between Northern and Western Europe on the one hand, and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe on the other hand. Old Hansaetic Gdańsk was made rich by the Polish grain trade. Today it lives of the amber jewelry trade and tourism.

In 1976 the Błyskawica was returned to port and is now permanently anchored there.

In the early 13th century the Teutonic Order launched its first crusades to the territories around the central stretch of the River Nogat in order to convert the local inhabitants to Christianity. At the beginning of the 1380s the Teutonic Knights started building a castle here which they referred to as St. Mary's Stronghold (German Marienburg). In just under 30 years they had raised a quadrangular convent building complete with chapel, chapter house, dormitory, refectory, an enclosed courtyard and a bailey situated to the north. A long, high gallery was built leading from the south-west corner to the Danske or sewage-tower, which was also used for defence purposes.
