Visited this church during our visit to Gdansk. We were very impressed with the beauty of this church. The altar which has extensive amber content is spectacular. The church played an important role in the Solidarity movement which can viewed in documentation during your visit.

An active church with some beautiful design elements inside. Nothing special but if you are in the neighborhood you can check it out.

Hello. No, You can visit this church for free. Sometimes there are sponsored exhibitions (when You must pay for sightseeing), but it happens very rarely. Come and see. Greetings from Gdańsk, Piotr :-)
