    Gdańsk, alongside the Pomeranian region, has joined the elite group of Polish cities featured in the prestigious Michelin Guide. This milestone was achieved through an agreement between the Polish Tourism Organization and Michelin, adding to the existing Polish entries of Warsaw, Kraków, and Poznań. This inclusion underscores the exceptional quality of Poland’s culinary scene, opening new avenues for promoting the country. Culinary tourism is booming, driven by the rise of urban and cultural travel.
