Probably worth a visit because of its age and central position in the Old Town. But major building works when we went made it hard to appreciate.

Its a must if you are staying in Gdansk, I would do your research on the internet if you decide not to have a guided tour. Well worth a visit just to see the Amber Alter which is still being built

It was the monastery church of the Swedish order St. Bridget. Interesting history and interiors. Attention attracts the Amber Altar.

It is a beautiful church, if not a little cold at times. In the spring, children from local schools undergo First Communion, so don't be surprised if you see little angels dressed in white!

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 :-)
