Interesting to see, but having learnt that 90% of Gdansk was flattened by the Red Army in 1945, I wonder if this is also rebuilt after the war. Anyway, it is nicely done and it adds atmospher to the quai.

Can only look from the outside. Not too special but worth a look if in the area. On the outskirts of the city so do on the way to somewhere else and only for quick photo and look.

The old mill is a shopping centre nowadays, with a variety of outlets inside. However this building dates back to 1342

No internals to see as its locked up, could be a decent attraction if it was perhaps. The water is channelled through at quite a force, good looking building.

On the Raduni canal, you can't miss this mill. It stands out because it looks so unlike the surrounding buildings and much of the other buildings in Gdansk. It was built by the Teutonic Knights in the 14th century.
