St. Mary Basilica in Gdansk
Updated: May 18, 2020
St. Mary is a Roman-Catholic church in the old Long Market in Gdansk, constructed in the 14th century. It is one of the largest brick churches in the world. Before the Second World War, it serves as a Lutheran church.
The interior of the church isn't fancy and decorated like many other churches in Poland. The gap between the impression that the church makes from the outside and the way it looks from the inside creates a bit of disappointment.
However, it is possible to climb (for a small entry fee) more than 400 stairs to the top of the tower for magnificent views of the city. I barely manage to climb it all, but when I reached the top, I forgot all about it.
