Old Town, Gdansk

4.8
Old Town represents a historic section in one of Poland's first cities. Although much of this area features post-World War II reconstructions, you'll also have a chance to experience the spirit of the Middle Ages as you explore. Begin at the famed city hall, constructed in the final decades of the 14th century when Teutonic Knights ruled this region. The imposing five-story building, topped by a gilt statue of King Sigismund Vasa, houses a renowned museum dedicated to the history of the city. As you continue, admire the many Gothic and Baroque buildings that appear frozen in time from centuries ago. Our Gdansk journey builder website makes visiting Old Town and other Gdansk attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is the old square of the town of Gdansk. Very interesting architecture down the main street and in the immediate area as well as the Neptune fountain. East walking distance to other attractions. ...  more »
  • Lots of history around when walking through the Old City. Only a few years ago it was not a nice place to visit. Now, so much progress and getting nicer.  more »
  • I did not raise in Gdańsk, I live here for 45ciu years, and I think that next to Krakow and Warsaw Old Town (I do not know Wrocław) Gdansk Old Town is great! Above mentioned above is due to the Motławe and long fetuses! Even most of the seals on this terrain I like. Amam almost ProFi look-I'm a OMC architect:)))
