Why did you choose to go to Gdansk, Poland?

I chose to go to Poland because the cost of living is the same as in Romania, my home country. And also because the city is at sea side and it has interesting architecture.

The rent is moderate but it depend on the city you live, Gdansk is cheaper than in Sopot.
