This 16th century, brick edifice is great example of Dutch renaissance. Its portal was under renovation in August 2005. The style is rather simple and practical for the office it housed in the past. The building, unlike most others around, survived WWII because it served as the headquarrters of the Soviet Army. In the past Polish astronomer and city councillor, Jan Hevelius, had his offices there.

There are a cellar restaurant, the Baltic Cultural Centre and temporarily expositions inside now. The interiors are worth seeing, especially the large Council Hall, the small Mayor Room on the second fllor and baroque wooden stairs. Admission is free daily at 10.00 am - 6.00 pm unless any cultural or other events take place inside.



Address: Ul. Korzenna 33/35; Gdansk
Directions: In the Old Town, by the Canal of Radunia, behind the Church of St. Joseph, 5 - 10 min. on foot from the main railway Station (Gdansk Glowny).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
