Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

St. Catherine's is the oldest Gdansk Church dating back to 1300-s.
However, it suffered several devastations, the biggest in WWII and more recently a big fire in 2006 causing a total roof collapse.
Today, it's restored, open and free to visit. It's set between the Amber museum and terrific St. Brigitte church behind it.

Had read about the biggest clock in a church and had to see if while visiting gdansk with my partner. Its amazing church ceilings are really high, the clock is amazing to look at. It was nice to sit and just listen to the the quiet of the church. A must to see while visiting gdansk.

St. Catharine's Church ("Kosciol Sw. Katarzyny") is the oldest church in Gdansk. It suffered a major fire in 2006 and it was restored, but now it does not look very interesting, apart from a gilded side altar.

The former parish, brick church of the Old Town was built in 14th century. Here Hevelius was church administrator and here is also his final resting place. You can find his tomb at the rear behind the altar along with an epitaph funded by his grandson nearly 100 years after the great man's death. Unfortunately in 2006 was great fire, which resulted in the ceiling collapsing, work to restore the church took a number of years.

Absolutely beautiful building. The starkness of it makes the features stand out all the more. Absolutely loved it.

The church has a clock museum. We were taken on a tour with no less than the museum's director as our guide. Worth exploring. For people with stronger knees, I highly recommend climbing to the topmost part of the church and see for yourselves a panoramic view of the Old Town, as well as marvel at the gigantic bells located on the top floor.

This is a fascinating church because it is nearly a thousand years old - not this present building. It was built on the foundations of another church in the 13th century. But it is beautiful on the outside. There is a fascinating clock tower that one can go up but we were too tired and of the day to go up. But still the church inside has beautiful ceilings, some very nice artefacts. Most of it burnt down in 2006 and they are still restoring. But it is still worth going inside and what is also fascinating is the several half - timber houses around the church which used to house the church workers. These houses date back to the 16th century and are also called Tudor houses. The small windows on these may be lattice windows made of lead pieces and small pieces of glass as glass was very expensive at that time.

The bell tower is the main draw here because of the great views it gives you across the city. The entrance has a red/green traffic light system because the stairway up is so narrow but once you reach the reception on the first floor thing broaden out. The views from the top are great

There has been a church on this site for near on a thousand years. The current church is a restored set of buildings that have been undertaken with great care and it is worth a visit.

You are able to climb the stairs to the top of the church spire which is 52 metres above street level and it provides a wonderful view of Gdańsk. On the way up you pass the church bells and a small but interesting museum on clocks which is worth stopping at.

Inside the church they detail the history of the Carmelite Order in Gdańsk and the suffering that was perpetuated upon them during the occupation of World War Two. Don’t forget to visit the crypt where you can view the burial from the 10 century.

This poor church has been through the wars - literally and you can really feel for these people. Some very interesting pieces can be found here and it is worth reading the literature that surrounds. Certainly eye opening.
