Gdansk Old Town

The historical center of Gdansk, where the main attractions are concentrated, is called the Main City, and everything that is located north of Pivnaya Street is called Old Town. The architectural appearance of the latter was formed in the 13-17 centuries, when Gdansk was called Danzig, belonged to the Teutonic Order, and then became a free trading city. Most buildings were destroyed by World War II bombs, but after they were rebuilt by Polish restorers. True, the reconstruction of the Church of the Virgin Mary, the largest brick church in Europe, is still not completed.

What to see
Above the red tiled roofs, a black tower of the Old Town Hall is visible from afar. In the park in front of her stands a monument to Jan Helvetius, the mayor, astronomer and inventor of instruments for observing the stars.

In the church of St. Brigitte, built in the 16th century, there is the world’s only amber altar made by modern Polish sculptors in the style of an old temple.

The Gothic structure of the Big Mill on the Raduni Canal is very impressive. At one time it was the largest in Europe, 18 wheels were turned by millstones, grinding grain for the knights of the Teutonic Order. Today inside is a shopping center.

Practical information
Location: Gdansk, Main City.

How to get there: from the Gdansk Glowny railway station on foot along Waly Jagiellonskie and Targ Weglowy streets, the journey takes 5 minutes.
