Gdansk is a town with a storyline that narrates greatness. Bombed to ruins during WWII, the old city centre of Gdansk has been restored to its towering glory, reflecting the city’s spirit of rising from the ashes to rise like a phoenix. See the restored Hanseatic architecture at its finest. Wander about Gdansk's sweeping boulevards, and discover a city that still resonates with the splendour of its past status as the most bountiful port on the Baltic. Stroll through the Main Town and see the precious monuments situated along the Royal Way- Dluga Street and Dlugi Targ. Visit the Dlugi Targ, home to the symbol of the city - the monument of Neptun. You can also see the renaissance Town Hall built in 1330. The building’s greatest attraction is the beautiful 81 m high soaring tower. On the top of the tower, there is a helmet with gilded statue of Sigismund August from 1561. Inside the town hall, you can browse through the History of Gdansk Museum. This museum is worth visiting even if for its wonderful council room. You can also visit one of Europe's biggest gothic brick churches of St Mary.
