Lower Town (3/13)

The lower town used to be a creepy legend some time ago. Few dared to go there. Children were told not to go there or, at least, not alone. It may sound dangerous but, fortunately, does not match the reality of today’s world. The Lower Town becomes a colourful part of Gdańsk again and is surely worth including on your must see list. The district owes its revival to numerous investments aimed at the restructuring of this part of the city. What is worth noticing there? One should see the remains of city fortifications and bastions such as the Wyskok, Wilk, Królik and Miś, a stone water gate from early 17th century, a manor from the late 18th century, 19th century buildings of the rifle factory and the former baths. Additionally, numerous historical houses and remains of the workers’ housing estate are worth seeing. Many picturesque ruins can be found along the route; all these things offer an excellent opportunity to make a few incredible photos for your Instagram  Just select an appropriate filter and enjoy the magical ambience of the location.
