Seemed like a quite normal cathedral to me, can't compare with for example Notre Dame. The park nearby is serene and beautiful though.

A truly beautiful cathedral with an unbelievable organ! It is hard to believe that with the technology of the that day that they were able to build an organ that can do all all it can. While the organ is playing it is able to move trumpeters and set into motion a variety of figures into action. It is a... More

Maybe not that special as described in the sightseeing guides. It is nice and nicely located in the park, so go there if you are in the neighbourhood. I would skip this if not already in Oliwa.

Gothic in origin. The church has an organ performance that is sensational. If you are in the area stop in @ 10 am. It lasts about 20 minutes & is worth every one of them. Be sure to make a donation to the church when they come by collecting.

We really enjoyed our visit to Oliwa Cathedral! It is near a very nice park and the interior of the cathedral is pretty cool. It is a little outside the city center but is on the main train line running from Gdansk to Sopot. We definitely recommend a visit to this church while in Gdansk, it was our favorite.
