The old arsenal building was eyecatching at the end of Piwna Street as I walked up that street from St. Mary's Church. This red bricked building fooled me as I thought it was a notable row house like those I had seen on the old...More

We were not able to enter the building but the facades on both sides were simply stunning. It's right at the edge of the historic old town near the Gold Gate.

This place was seen while on a walking tour of Gdansk, Poland. The architecture is quite interesting. Because of the limitation of my visit and guided tour I dont know if interior visiting is possible.

Beautiful and well maintained building. Adds that special something to the street. Was very quiet when we went which made taking pictures easy!

This is a very highly decorated frontage with great lion statues and Dragon gargoyles. The inside is very plain. There was a Christmas market inside when we visited.

We walked around this building as part of the Christmas market and feel we may have missed out on how pretty it probably was on the inside due to the stalls. The architecture of the outside was impressive and well worth taking the time to...More
