Health & safety

Dangers & annoyances

In general Gdańsk is perfectly safe, though pickpocketing can be a problem at busy times. Believe it or not, shady moneychangers still hang around Długi Targ, Długie Pobrzeże and the train station offering foreigners marginally attractive rates; the mark-up’s not that impressive, and it’s not worth the chance of being ripped off. During the peak tourist season there’s a noticeable police presence around the Main Town, which will either reassure or unsettle you, depending on your attitude to the sight of uniformed officers.
