Old Town Hall
This is located at the heart of Old Gdansk, on Ul. Dluga (Long Street). I love coming to this place because it's always so alive with people and little cafes. There is an ice cream shop almost every 50 meters, and I swear I never tasted strawberry ice cream this good anywhere else. Makes my mouth water just writing about it. There is a fountain of a naked man with a trident (Neptune) where people always pose in front of to have their picture taken. Right now this place is really packed with people because of the St. Dominic Fair, which lasts 3 weeks. Pretty much it's a giant flea market, where people sell anything from clothes, jewelry to old WWII collectibles. It's tradition dates back to the 13th century, where German, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese merchants would sell wine, silk, jams, spices, tin and cloth. So if you want a really cool and cheap bracelet or a bayonet for your rifle, this is the place to get it.
