This church has been on fire in 2006 So they are still renovating and remodeling. But it's worth a visit and they sell postcards seeing the church on fire. And with a donation you can help the church to be rebuild!

The inside of the church is very pretty as well. You can also climb the tower, which will give you a view of Gdansk.

The bullet holes across the street, the history the photographs to let you know what has happened there, the shell of what the church once was and what it will be again. WOW

This tower is not as high as St.Mary's, but still a climb, of course. Gives a great view of the old town: the market building, St.Mary's church, the town hall. Would recommend it for taking pictures.

St Catherine's church is the oldest church in Gdansk. One of the centerpieces of old town. Climb up the tower. It is worth the effort to see the view from above, with old and new parts of Gdansk visible and the Baltic in the background.
