St. Mary's Church, Gdansk
One of the largest brick churches in the world, St. Mary's Church was begun in the 14th century and can hold 25,000 people. The large hall has enough space for three aisles under the high white arches with carved relief star vaulting. The plain brick Gothic-sytle architecture stands tall in the city center and is an iconic structure for the city. Artwork inside the church, such as the Holy Mother of God sculpture and the Ten Commandants sculpture, date to the 15th and 16th centuries. The organ is a 21st-century addition; its sound fills the space with music. Put St. Mary's Church at the forefront of your travel plans using our Gdansk road trip planning app .

However, in order to enjoy the beautiful view, you have to be able to enjoy the beautiful steps up over 420 steps. The worst is the first piece, as it goes there into a narrow round turret over old stone steps, after which it goes. If you are at the top of the platform, you can also look up to the harbour. Down it is then the same, the first piece is good and the rest goes down again through a second turret.
