  The Town Hall in Gdansk
by Paul2001

The Town Hall of Gdansk, with its high clock tower, dominates the city. This interesting building was begun in the 14th century. The tower was added later. The building was essentially destroyed by the fighting when the Soviets captured the city during the Second World War. The restoration of the structure was so superbly done, that you hardly would know that this is not exactly the original building.
The Town Hall is now the home of a historial museum. While visiting the museum you can see many of the rooms once used for offical purposes during the towns past. These rooms are brilliantly decorated mostly dating from the 17th century. In the court room there are photomontages of Gdansk after the horrific fighting in 1945.
The museum is open from 10am to 4pm from Tuesday to Saturday. On Sunday the museum opens at 11am. It costs 5zl to visit the museum.

Directions: At the north end of Ulica Dluga
