This is really worth it to check out just for the very impressive architecture alone. It is expansive and impressive ftom multiple viewing angles both front and back sides and an important piece of Gdansk history. I recommend seeing whether you are religious or not.

From the outside the brick building looked a little dark and austere but inside it was so light and the various chapels were beautiful with some beautiful statues and icons - well worth the visit which was a stop off point on our city tour.
