Description

With many years of experience in organizing the best-selling guided tours in Gdansk, we invite you on an original walking tour of the Old Town and Main Town. Our Licensed Local Guide will show you the best of Gdansk, its history, culture, daily life, regional traditions and customs. Only with us you will visit St. Bridget’s Church, home to the remarkable Amber Altar! Come and feel the magic of Gdansk! Join a 2-hour 15-minute group tour of the Old Town and Main Town of Gdansk. We start our adventure in front of the High Gate, one of the few medieval city gates decorating the historic center. A Local Expert will lead our 25-person group through the charming Dluga street to the Long Market (Dlugi Targ), which in the Middle Ages was one of the busiest markets in the Baltic Sea region. We'll listen to stories about the wealthy merchants who gathered at the Artus Court to trade amber and other goods, and we'll admire the colorful tenement houses and the legendary Neptune’s Fountain. We’ll take a walk along the picturesque embankment of the Motlawa River and see a medieval port Crane, one of the most iconic symbols of Gdansk. The guide will also take us inside St. Mary’s Basilica - the largest gothic brick church in the world. The highlight of our tour will be a visit inside the Basilica of St. Bridget, which played an important role as a sanctuary for the leaders of the anti-communist movement Solidarnosc. We're the only tour operator to provide entrance tickets to this church to show you its unique treasure: an altar made entirely of amber. It’s a must-see attraction, so book now!
