We visited the church on a weekend and spent a about 1-1/2 hours there. There is a small admission fee but well worth it. The church is loaded with chapels and art. We also climbed to the top of the tower. Beware, it is a big climb with over 400 steps! The first part is up a tight spiral staircase... More

The church is well worth a visit, it is much more interesting inside than it appears from the outside! It is absolutely enormous, it can hold 25,000 people. It is worth paying the (very small) entrance fee to see the astronomical clock alone. For a few more zlotys you can climb the tower for wonderful views of the town.

The local inhabitants are very proud of this church, which they say is the largest brick church in the world (I didn't want to break their hearts and say that I think I've seen bigger ones in break). Impressive that they rebuilt it after WWII.

The steps - there are a lot of them, some winding and some steep. But well worth the perseverance, as long as you are physically fit.

Just to stand in the square beside this delightful building when the chimes are busy, every quarter hour, and loads at the hour is a pleasure. We did it on a sunny spring day, and were quite mesmerised.

The building is a masterpiece. It's a shame that protestant christians covered all the walls with white plaster obscuring the beautiful mosaics and paintings of old, but the place is still worth visiting. And climbing up to the top to see the city panorama!

Worth a visit to the top of the steeple! The 300 steps to the top are not for the faint hearted but worth the trip up.

This was a beautiful and enriching experience in which to view the church both inside and outside. The architecture was impressive and I highly recommend coming for a visit.

A truly imposing brick church with beautiful stain glass windows and amazing architecture. St Mary's Church is a beautiful church in the centre of Gdansk that was badly damaged during the war. The inside of the church is beautiful especially the astronomical clock dating from 1498. A truly incredible place.
