Day 23 of the Scandinavian Airlines "24 Days of Christmas" features Poland's fourth largest city in Poland and the country's principal seaport. Located alongside the Baltic Sea, Gdansk is known as the birthplace of the solidarity movement, which played a major role in bringing an end to communism in Central Europe. Things to do and see include St. Mary's Church, which is said to be the largest brick church in the world, the former path of procession for visiting Kings called Royal Road and of course tasty Polish food and beer.
