Summer break is a time of amazing deals, hence a perfect opportunity to reset and recharge your style and refresh your wardrobe. Tricity is full of shopping centers but we chose two of those that, in our perspective, are the most interesting and deserve your attention.
Forum Gdańsk is a modern urban space, where leisure, shopping and entertainment are interconnected with a city life. Creative and open space filled with energy was built on Targ Sienny and Targ Rakowy – historical areas of Gdańsk trade.
Up to 1/3 of Forum Gdańsk space is a vivid, 2 hectares green area with 33 thousands plants from over 80 species! There are also 2 trees – chestnut tree and ash, planted many, many years ago.
Thanks to that the city center gained a unique ecosystem that brings butterflies and singing birds. The surroundings are blossomed with greenness and autumn’s redness, but regardless the season, space around Forum is always esthetically creative.
The genius-like concept, based on which forum was created, allows public space to shape the trading space, not the other way around. The mall is based in the central part of the metropolis, right next to train station Gdańsk Główny, historic Main Town, public utility buildings, and transfer junction Gdańsk Śródmieście. It all makes it a wonderful place to go shopping.
On the other hand, the biggest shopping-entertainment center in Pomorskie is Rivieria in Gdynia. The design and architecture inspiration of this place was drawn from the French Riviera. Thanks to various leisure zones, fountains and many entertainment events, shopping here is stress-free and the special kids area invites whole family.
On 70,000 square meters, there are about 250 shops, bars, restaurants and service points. At Riviera, you can find shops from the acclaimed polish and foreign fashion and beauty brands. Also, Riviera and Forum Gdańsk often engage with cultural endeavors and those integrating local society. That’s why you definitely should visit both malls in the summertime, where you will also have an opportunity to buy regional cheese, honey and other treats straight from local producers.
What we recommend to the tourists, especially in centers like these, is a visit at the shops from polish brands. Polish clothes as well as cosmetics are growing in strength around Europe. In Poland, leather shoes, business shirts, sophisticated business and premium accessories producers reassert their position on the market. Polish jewelry also gains a lot of attention abroad – it is recommended to hunt for items with amber additions. Casual clothing brands from Poland are very popular in Europe – LPP portfolio from Pomorskie is insanely popular among British women. You should also take a look at a vast offer from polish cosmetics manufacturers – quality-wise it is practically the same as most of the western products but, what is worth noting, the price is much, much lower.
