Our driver taking us to Gdansk syopped at the cathedral while there was an organ concert going on. The church is magnificent but the concert was better. The acoustics were remarkable and we were spellbound for 45 minutes. Not far from Gdansk center by cab.

We loved the sound and watching all the moving parts - huge organs the size of a three storey building - see them if you can - hear them is even better
