This tower is not as high as St.Mary's, but still a climb, of course. Gives a great view of the old town: the market building, St.Mary's church, the town hall. Would recommend it for taking pictures.

St Catherine's church is the oldest church in Gdansk. One of the centerpieces of old town. Climb up the tower. It is worth the effort to see the view from above, with old and new parts of Gdansk visible and the Baltic in the background.

As I have an interest in these clock mechanisms, I persuaded my wife to join me in visiting this museum. The stairs are worn and narrow but worth the effort . The museum houses many turret clock mechanisms, some working and some not. For me...More

Abselutely a must when you are interested in church history. St. Catherines Church is one of the most important church in town and has a lot of things to tell you inside.

We have been there with our kids. This old church is very impressive. In the neighborhood you can find a vegetable market, a lot of little wooden shops selling souvenirs, restaurants to eat cheaper than the dluga street, water canals to stroll around.

You can climb the tower and it gives an OK view of Gdansk. The inside of the church is very pretty as well.
