[closed] St. Nicholas' Church

  ul. Świętojańska 72, Gdańsk ,   Old Town          (+48) 58 301 35 77     13 Jun 2019
The first Catholic church in the city and the only one to escape WWII without a scratch. Founded by the Dominican Order in 1348-90, this is a remarkable church with a dark marbled interior, ancient exposed walls and a sombre atmosphere. Of note is the multi-level high altar and Baroque-panelled choir stalls which make it a popular choice for weddings. Note that the church is currently closed following the discovery of cracks in some of the churches vaults. A major project is now underway to discover the cause of the subsidence and to stabilise the building. Masses have been moved to neighbouring churches and an appeal has been launched to help contribute funds to the building work.
