The Saturday reception and all dinners, except for the one on Thursday, are planned at famous Gdansk restaurant "Piwnica Rajcow".

Dlugi Targ 44 St. Gdansk Old Town Main Square, at the corner near Neptune's fountain, 5 min walk from the University complex on Kladki street.

This cavernous cellar feels tailor-made for some old school revelry. You can well imagine barrels of ale being rolled in here for a lively cast of rotund merchants. Given that this building - the famed Arthur''s Court - was once the pride and joy of Gdansk''s elite, then there''s probably more than a little truth in the notion of hell-raising antics. Today you can settle in for a suitably indulgent dinner. Kick off with a Kir Royal and then try a light goulash soup followed by fresh Norwegian salmon. You''ll find the restaurant just round the corner from Neptune's fountain. >> link <<
