Gdańsk Market Hall

  Pl. Dominikański 1, Gdańsk ,   Old Town          (+48) 58 346 31 33     15 Jul 2019
One of the strangest buildings in the city, Gdańsk's covered market wouldn’t look out of place posing as a provincial 19th-century train station in the south of France. Built in 1896 in a Neo-Gothic style, the market has recently been completely renovated at a cost of 20zł million, an act that led to the discovery of the foundations of one of the city’s oldest churches, the 12th century Church of St. Nicolas, underneath the main market building. Amid the cheap clothing stalls and rows of meat and dairy produce, the church’s foundations have been left as they were found, providing a small, living archaeology museum in the basement along with a display of photographs, objects found during the excavations and drawings of how the church might have looked. You can also visit the Romanesque Cellars whose entrance can be found in the courtyard outside.

If you're a British expat living in Gdansk or just a visitor who would like to purchase British brands of cigarettes, you might be interested to know that the tobacco kiosk in the covered market is one of the few places that sells Lambert & Butler and Superkings. You can purchase single packets or cartons of 200 for 113 PLN [Jan 2011]. Enter from the entrance on Panska and the kiosk is on your left.
