Gdańsk

Świętego Ducha Street

more than a year ago
As you duck through the alleyway between the church walls and follow it along the right, back to the main street, you are now on ul. Świętego Ducha (Holy Spirit Street). As you proceed down on the route, take a look at the buildings. Unlike ul. Mariacka, this is what a replicated ‘old’ street in Gdańsk looks like. Restoration has been done with varying success. Most notably, the concrete-rendered fronts were done during the Communist-era. The orange, Baroque building across from Four Quarters Fountain is the Kaplica Królewska (ENG: The Royal Chapel), which was built in the late 17th century. Fans of Philosophy will be interested to know that Arthur Schopenhauer lived at no.47, a little further up the road. Schopenhauer's mother, Joanna lived at no.111!
