How did the build this hundreds of years ago!?

No entrance fee, as Poland is very religious - Holy Mass is happening often. Not really liked quite loud guided excursion.

Historical place with one of the biggest organs in Europe. Must visit when the concerts are. Surrounded by the beautiful Park Oliwski.

With our guide we got there in good time for the concert. A real bargain for music lovers, but it could be twice the length. Be sure to enjoy watching the organ during the concert – a nice surprise.

If you are in Gdańsk - Oliwa you must see the cathedral. It' s the heart of Oliwa. That's a special place for all visitors: people interested in history, architecture and also for prayers. Don't forget to see listen to the concerts.

One of the 'musts' for church visits here. Wonderful craftsmanship and a great feeling of serenity. Take your time and breath in the history.

A not to be missed venue especially for its architecture and awesome organ - daily demonstrations are provided and these are brilliant to listen to and to observe the movements of the encompassing architectural features. The park within which the building is situated is equally beautiful and within a short signposted walk from the railway station. Loved the place.

Even if you are not an organ music fan, this place is a must-see. There are free concerts throughout the day except Sundays (small donations will be welcome by the Cathedral). Face the organ during the concert and watch the moving parts - it's not every day that you can see angels in action blowing their trumpets! Seriously though, make... More

An easy 20-minute tram ride from the centre, and a lovely 5-minute walk through the park nearby (get off at Obroncow Westerplatte on either tram 6 or 12 from the central station). If you're there for about 11am, there could be a free recital on the 'all knobs and whistles' organ - well worth joining the coach parties for the... More

This church has been rebuilt few times, but still carries a lot of history, with old graves and wall paintings inside. They organize short organ concerts here several times a day, well worth experiencing.....
