Beautiful old church, one of many in the old town of Gdansk. From the plattform on top of the church, you have a great overview over the old town and the city.

We have been there recently and the huge church is under renovation. It looks simply poor these days. The building is giant but not that pretty.

Lovely big church but still being restored. Can climb tower at certain times, 409 steps, some stone spiral, some wood, some metal. Astrological clock works at midday if you want to see in action.
