Prison Tower & Torture Chamber

  Targ Węglowy 26, Gdańsk ,   Old Town         05 Dec 2022
Between the Upland and Golden gates is a 16th-century complex that functioned as a torture chamber and courthouse (the smaller building) and a prison (the tower). It's alleged that flooding the underground cell (see the grate behind the door) was a common torture method used and prisoners had to bail themselves out to survive! Once the home of the city's Amber Museum, a new-and-improved version can be found at the Great Mill to the north.
