We happened to visit this church and the surrounding monastery and gardens late on a sunny Sunday morning and we were treated to some beautiful organ music both classical and traditional. The compound is tranquil yet alive with visitors who come to enjoy the gardens...More

If you are staying in Gdansk it is quite a journey to Oliwa although the public transport is reasonably good. A taxi fare cost us 50 ztl but we found it still reasonable considering that it dropped us outside the front door of the cathedral....More

Being in Gdansk it pays to visit this nice Cathedral. It is much nicer than other churches that we have seen there. But the highlight is the park that surrounds it.
