One of the largest brick churches in the world, St. Mary's Church was begun in the 14th century and can hold 25,000 people. The large hall has enough space for three aisles under the high white arches with carved relief star vaulting. The plain brick Gothic-sytle architecture stands tall in the city center and is an iconic structure for the city. Artwork inside the church, such as the Holy Mother of God sculpture and the Ten Commandants sculpture, date to the 15th and 16th centuries. The organ is a 21st-century addition; its sound fills the space with music. Put St. Mary's Church at the forefront of your travel plans using our Gdansk road trip planning app.
