Situated at the end of a charming street, this lovely church is typically polish. Simple yet Gothic interior style and well worth a walk up the million steps for the best view over Gdansk!

The trip to the top of this church is worth it! 400 stair steps, but the view from the top is amazing! I recommend good shoes and camera!

Yes, there is a small fee to pay go to the tower, but its worth it. Also please note staircase to the tower are very wide, but its a big unusually open space going up and rather not for someone with fear of hights.
