St Mary's is amazing from both the outside and inside. The church is built entirely in bricks. You can take the 400 steps up to the tower and have a full view of Gdansk. Will recommend this for everyone, but be careful if you aren't in shape.

The winding staircase is tiring and at the time feels never ending, once you get to the top of that; catch your breath as you have many more steps to go. Not for those who struggle with heights or fitness as quite taxing on the body. The views are amazing, even on a cold and wet November afternoon. The descent... More

Amazing church with amazing views from the tower!!. Lots and lots and lots of stairs to climb to the top (the first part are a set of dizzying spiral stairs!) But what a view...

It is only 4zl to enter the church & 6zl for entry to church and the tower. So for the small amount of extra money it is well worth it. There are approx 400 steps to the top, which is slightly tiring!! but the views are worth it. The interior of the church is also very nice. Well worth a... More

Loved it. The best part for us was climbing to the tower - you can see all of the old town. But the church is also fantastic. Very big and beautiful.

Simply beautiful, many details one should pay attention to, impressive altar created in such a precision, beautiful organs, many old sculptures and paintings worth seeing. If you dare to go 412 steps up you can take a look at the city from the tower. Seightseeing is paid but you can buy a ticket for both church and tower and it's... More

The detail in this building is amazing. For those interested in architecture and religious artistic details then this building is well worth visiting. It is centrally located and readily accessible.
