Old Town, Gdansk

(4.8/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
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. For Old Town and beyond, use our Gdansk vacation builder to get the most from your Gdansk vacation.

  • The old town in Gdansk is the most interesting to visit in the summer when you can go everywhere and see everything, for example,, tryskajacego,, Neptune (odcieta in winter) or Church of the observation tower. Only in the summer it is to sit in and listen to the wybijajacych bells gardenie hours of the Town Hall and many others. Winter Hawk OK but not the same because.. cold and slightly boring.

  • Gdansk has a beautiful main town, called colloquially the old town. Town Hall Głownomiejski, Artus, the fountain of Neptune, Golden Gate and green gate is njbardziej known points. Next door is the old town, with the Town Hall Square, a lot smaller, which is great, in its time the largest "factory" in Europe. And it is still a wonderful Church of the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY, towering above the city. So much for the beginning:)

  • Very nice old town, everything looks nice, the only thing that is confusing-what is all this beautiful installation on the theme of the old town. All buildings were restored from ruins and virtually no original buildings in the old city there. Moreover it is enough to simply move to an adjacent street and real view of the city offers to you in the form of ruins and broken tiles
