    A new online game has been created by Gdańsk researchers to promote the Polish language. ‘On the Trail of the Baltic secrets’ (Polish: “Tropem nadbałtyckich tajemnic”) is a game for everybody interested in the culture and history of Gdańsk. Initially designed for Slavic language students from Istanbul University, players can walk the streets of Gdańsk, solve quizzes, collect trophies and learn Polish.

    ‘On the Trail of the Baltic secrets’ (Polish: “Tropem nadbałtyckich tajemnic”), the game by the Institute of Polish Language of the Faculty of Languages at the University of Gdańsk is aimed at foreigners living in Poland and learning Polish. It was initially designed for Slavic language students from Istanbul University. The players can walk the streets of Gdańsk, solve quizzes, collect trophies and learn Polish. 

    According to Gdańsk University:

    “The mission is to find Neptune’s trident hidden by Mercury. The game takes players to the shore of the Baltic Sea, presents selected cultural institutions of Gdańsk, important cards from the history of the city and attractive, non-obvious places on its cultural map.”

    The game has been developed as part of a project co-financed by the National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) in the ‘Promotion of Polish Language’ programme.
