We think it’s fair to say that most major cities in the world are full of attractions. Each city has its own distinct architecture, places to visit, local businesses, museums, and many more things that could make it into the list. However, do you know a city that has a dog as its local attraction? And no, we aren’t talking about the Hachiko statue at the Shibuya Station in Japan, we are talking about a very lovely golden retriever in the Polish city of Gdansk.
What makes this even better is that Gdansk is one of the most visited cities by tourists in Poland. One would think seeing the old town of Gdansk or maybe visiting the local beaches that meet the Baltic Sea would make for a great getaway trip, but Gdansk citizens and recent tourists alike might have a slightly different opinion.

Recently a new and very unusual place called “The dog from the balcony” became known in the polish city of Gdansk
Recently a new and very unusual place made itself known in the Tri-City. We already mentioned an adorable golden retriever, but what does it have to do with famous tourist places? Well, I bet most of us would take the chance to visit “the dog from the balcony.”
The golden retriever called Milka lives on the corner of Politechniczna and Bohaterów Getta Warszawskiego streets in Gdansk, Poland
The dog is always sitting at the first-floor balcony greeting both the locals and tourists with her friendly smile and adorable face
“The dog from the balcony” became the highest-rated (5 stars!) tourist attraction both on Google maps and the local Polish website
“The dog from the balcony” became the highest-rated (5 stars!) tourist attraction both on Google maps and the local Polish website (think of it as Polish Trip Advisor) that lists most of the places to visit in different cities of Poland.
According to the Top Rated website, the retriever ranks first among Gdansk’s attractions and second among all locations in the city

Milka has her own Facebook page with over 6000 followers who enjoy (almost) daily pictures of Milka sitting out on the balcony
However, as of recently, “The dog from the balcony” was removed from Google maps as it wasn’t considered an official attraction of the city.
It’s also worth mentioning that Milka had higher ratings than some of the most visited places in the world, for example: the Louvre has a score of 4.7, the Taj Mahal is at 4.6 and the Statue of Liberty is at 4.7 stars.
People in the reviews said that the absence of the dog on the balcony was a legitimate reason for sadness
A user on Twitter called Daniel Tilles decided to share the Google page of “the dog from the balcony” before it got removed
