Its design is a brilliant example of the Gothic Renaissance - but do not stop with admiring this architectural masterpiece: also enter and enjoy the museum, which is housed in the building!!!

As you come into and look around this building--we had an excellent guide that took us through, it is so hard to believe that it was so badly damaged in WW2. The Polish people are so proud of this city and the way it arose once again, like the phoenix from the ashes. This building is also a reminder of... More

Wonderful building right in the city centre. Surprisingly beatiful above all the tower. Most advised corner for a sight is from down and from the side,

We entered and where not charged. Not sure why not as it is worth paying. You walk up a few steps enter the first room and that is ok then you enter the main hall - WOW - stunning. The ceilng is a master piece. So beautiful I could have stayed for hours. Please do not miss this place.

If you're interested in the Gdańsk history - go inside, there is a museum inside covering vast majority of the last few hundreds years of Gdańsk history.

Built from 1346 up to the 15th c. it stands at the junction of Dulga (Long Street) and Dulgi Trag (Long Market), part of the famous Royal Route. It now houses the Historical Museum since 2000. Above the baroque entrance doorway of 1766 there is the famous bas-relief of the lions protecting the coat of arms of the city. One... More
