Following the Gdansk view points

Have you ever thought what Gdansk looks like from the height of over 100 metres? Or perhaps you like climbing and you want to see the city from somewhat different perspective? For active people, it will be an interesting idea to sightsee the city by climbing the highest peaks of which there are quite a few in Gdansk!

Erected in stages for over 159 years, St. Mary's Church is the largest brick church in the world. It is 105.5 m long, 66 m wide in its transept, the vault is 30 m high and the interior can accommodate about 20 thousand people. From the gallery of the impressive 78-metres bell tower with its characteristic flat-roof figure proudly raised over Gdansk, there is a great view of the city panorama. Almost 400 steps need to be covered to climb there. Besides, in the shade of the Church, there is a baroque Royal Chapel funded by Poland's king John III Sobieski, with an original facade and characteristic three domes.
