Well worth a visit. Wasn’t destroyed completely during the war. Have a good look around 20-30 mins. We loved it.

Very beautiful church, one of the oldest in Gdansk, escaped WWII bombings as for Russians St.Nicholas is highly regarded in the Orthodox tradition. Very richly decorated, black-and-gold altars. Free to visit.
