Classical Gdańsk

If it is your first visit to Gdańsk make sure you see a few flagship places, symbols of the city. If you have been living here for years you have probably passed them on your way home many times. Perhaps it is worthwhile to stop and see them afresh? Every reason is good to have a walk to the Main Town and the Old Town and rediscover the hidden gems of architecture; this is why we invite you for a journey through classical Gdańsk.

One of the youngest branches of the Gdańsk History Museum and, at the same time, the most beautiful one. It is located in the Gothic and Renaissance Fore Gate Complex of the Długa Street consisting of the Prison Tower (Wieża Więzienna), a Neck (Szyja) with the Prison House (Dom Więzienny) and the Torture House (Katownia). The surroundings are picturesque and unique. You can find beautiful, unique exhibits in the Museum of Amber. Both jewellery and everyday objects are made of various types of amber and sometimes accompanied by other precious stones. We can also admire natural objects, both historical and artistic ones determining the diversity and timelessness of amber products.
