We were very keen to visit this church as it was unaffected/ devastated as a result of World War 2, unlike nearly all the other churches the city. However, despite 3 separate visit over the time we were in Gdansk it was never open.

I went in then turned around. It was so commercial. It was pretty but really nothing special enough to fight the crowds.

For me, St Nicks outclassed the BASILICA OF ST. MARY. As soon as you walk in, it's awe inspiring. Beautiful architecture. Serenely beautiful!
