The largest brick church in the world, St Mary’s Church – also known as St Mary’s Basilica – dominates the centre of Gdansk’s main town.
To stay near St Mary’s Church, choose from the wide range of accommodation in Gdansk’s main town, or near the waterfront. You can book a stay at a luxury hotel built in Baroque style, or opt for one of Gdansk’s many three- or four-star apartment hotel in a modern new development by the river. If you’re on a budget, there’s the option of staying in a two-star hostel within easy reach of St Mary’s Church and the main sights in Gdansk city centre.
The building of this massive church started in 1343, but it was expanded to its current size in 1502. It can hold 25,000 people, and became a vital meeting place for members of the Solidarity movement when Poland was under martial law in the early 1980s. One of St Mary’s Church’s most striking features is the 15th-century astronomical clock, which you can see in the northern transept.
St Mary’s Church has 31 chapels and wandering around it you can feel almost overwhelmed by the white starkness of the interior. The original frescoes were whitewashed after they were severely damaged in the Second World War, but the plain walls merely make it easier to appreciate the many works of art throughout the church. For some impressive views across the city, climb the 405 steps to the top of the church tower – and don’t forget your camera.
Walk around St Mary’s Church’s eastern side and you end up on one of Gdansk’s prettiest streets. Ulica Mariacka is a narrow cobbled lane lined with tall Baroque-style townhouses, many of which have cafes and restaurants tucked into cosy little terraces.
Head around the corner to the Royal Way, the alluring pedestrianised thoroughfare that has some of the main town’s most beautiful architecture. Pop into the Artus Court Museum, which is housed in one of the grandest buildings along the street. You’ll also come across the splendid rococo Neptune Fountain, which was built in 1633.
