We have spent a lot of time in Europe and have seen many Cathedrals but this one is stunning. You must come to hear the organ being played. Check the website for times.

Majestic old cathedral in the centre of town. An absolute must to visit while in Gdansk. Look also inside.

Church is nice and definetely impressive, but the super star here is the old monumental organ. Come here and spend half an hour of your time by listening to it, you will not experience anything like that anymore in your whole life.

The Oliwa cathedral is just beautiful. It does not look much from the outside, but the interior is really beautiful. It is worth the 15 minute journey with train from Gdansk Glowny. We where so lucky we arrived at the end of a mass, and catched the organ music played at the end. That was "heavy" :-)

A very great and interesting religious buildin. Worth to check because of its religious and cultural monuments and also a calm place for relaxing.

15mn North of Gdansk's main station by train, Oliwa has retained a beautiful park-cum-museum-and-cathedral complex which is well worth a visit. I visited during an impromptu concert of the organ; when played, angels, trumpets and stars start to move...!

Hadn't planned to visit but we had a couple of unscheduled hours so popped in to have a look - and certainly glad we did! Quite stunning interior (exterior nice but not too much write home about) with many paintings and very old furniture items with paintings on them too. There are several galleries with stunning architecural pieces and intricate... More

Lovely old church. Definitely easy to see the history of the city. In the "Stere Miasto". Or center of the old city.
