Gdansk sightseeing

The most monument - abounding city of the "Baltic Europe". The former main entrance to the city - the Upland Gate passes to the remains of gothic defensive walls with Prison and Torture Towers. The Long Market is surrounded by richly decorated mansions – like the famous Uphagen’s Mansion. Close by there is the famous 15th century crane. The late gothic Main Town Hall is a characteristic landmark. It is surmounted with a life-size gilded figure of king Sigismund Augustus and houses richly decorated chambers. Beyond the Main Town Hall there is the Artus Court – the 15th century building used for Hanseatic League meetings and since the 17th century as a stock exchange. Right in front possible to admire the Neptune Fountain – the official image of the city and its connection with the sea. Just behind there is St. Mary’s Basilica – the gothic symbol of city’s wealth and power. Worth to see is also the Cistercian Monastery in Oliwa to attend the pipe organ concert. The gothic cathedral is famous for this 18th century instrument with 7878 pipes of tin and wood. Recommended to see- the Shipyard Workers Solidarity Monument– commemorating the event that led to the collapse of communism in Central Europe. Westerplatte– the place where WWII started. Finally Mariacka Street with perfectly reconstructed terraced houses and shops with famous amber jewellery.
