A city where history and tradition meet the here and now. In the twilight of the ancient world, the area of Pruszcz Gdański was chosen as a site for an important trading post. This excellent location at the intersection of several land and sea trade routes was where foreign merchants supplied themselves with various goods, including raw amber. Soon the trading post (Faktoria) in Pruszcz Gdański had become a commercial hub for the settlements between Tczew and Gdańsk, as well as for all of Eastern Pomerania. A significant portion of the profits was generated through the sale of amber goods, which triggered the development of numerous workshops. In 2011, a recreation of the trading post was opened, which presents not only the lives of the former inhabitants of Pomerania, but also offers museum classes, demonstrates centuries-old crafts and is one of the city’s cultural and educational centres.
