If you like beer (the golden nectar) you don’t have to travel to Munich this year. The Oktoberfest takes place also in Gdansk, Poland. Try German beer in Gdansk.
This German beer has a particularly strong aroma and it’s served in liter „pints” by waitresses in traditional Bavarian costumes. Of course beer is not all what is available on the fest. The Bavarian specialties are served too, such as the roasted pork knuckle in dark beer and sausages served in water with sweet mustard.
The Oktoberfest in Gdansk runs until the end of October. More details here: www.brovarnia.pl
