    So me and a few mater are heading to Open'er festival in Gdynia this July.
    We aren't sure what to do with the rest of our time - we have another 6 free days. Has anybody got any advice on cool things to see/do around the Gdansk area?
    Any experience of what the nightlife is like around there?
    Thanks!!

    Go to Sopot for nightlife - just down the coast, back towards Gdansk.

    Malbork Castle, Stutthof concentration camp are some more 'sensible' activities.

    Gdansk is a lovely city with lots to see and great boat cruises from going regularly from centre of town. Sopot just up the coast has great beaches and good nightlife.

    +1 on a visit to Stutthof Concentration camp. It's about 35km away but you can book a taxi to bring you there and back for cheap enough (taxi will wait at camp for you at the camp). Very interesting yet a humbling experience.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I suppose we are looking to do a mix of cultural stuff and partying!! Would you say Sopot is the place to stay in terms of bars/clubs?

    Most definitely. Can't recommend any specific hotel etc as I was staying with friends but Sopot is where its at in the evening. Mind you it wasn't mental crazy either, although it was March when I visited.

    It was definitely mental crazy in June 2012 when I was there!
