Sightseeing made really easy
Start at the Green Gate. Chances are you’ll witness a performance of some talented musicians playing under the gate’s arches.
Walk west inside the Long Market (Długi Targ) and absorb the atmosphere of the heart of Gdansk.
Stop at the Neptune Fountain and marvel at the Artus Court in the background.
Behind the fountain turn right into Kramarska Street or into Kaletnicza Street to get to the St Mary’s Church.
Climb the tower of Europe’s biggest brick-made church to admire views over the whole city.
Explore the impressive interior of the church, including Europe’s oldest and rare astrological clock.
Go out and east behind St Mary’s Church only to walk into Gdansk’s prettiest street - Mariacka. Take your time to stroll and possibly buy an amber item in one of the numerous galleries.
Go back in front of the church. The street unfolding to the west is Piwna. Choose one of the bars and restaurant to have lunch or a refreshment.
Head south to return to the city’s bustling epicenter - Dluga Street. Once there, you’ll see the Golden Gate on its western end.
Go through the gate to face the Amber Museum. Visit it in order to learn more about the famous Baltic gold.
