St. Bridget's Church (Kosciol sw. Brygidy) was once associated with the movement of solidarity. For many years the pastor was Rev. Henryk Jankowski - the chaplain of Solidarity. This church is a symbol of that era when the Poles were fighting for independent Poland.

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 :-)
