The Royal Granary (Spichlerz Królewski) is a large, four-floor building with a huge, gable, red-tiled roof, located on the Olowianka Island and overlooking the Motlawa River. To get there take a ferry across the river which leaves by the Crane. It's a place for fans of pretty modern interiors inside old buildings and of good Polish food.
The granary has been pretty renovated recently and it houses the beautiful, 3-star, Hotel Królewski (Royal Hotel) now. I wanted to stay there but unfortunatelly the hotel had been already fully booked. There is a very good restaurant which serves delicious (I was told) Polish and European food. It's more expensive than average but not that bad. See, their speciality - the seafood dish: sola, pink salmon and shrimps with mussels and safran sauce costs 60 zl (? 15).
The Olowianka Island belonged to the Teutonic Knights in medieval times. They used to store a zinc ore, staves for barrels and lead that is "olow" in Polish language (the name of the island derives from it). In the Royal Granary, built in 15th - 17th century, crops of the Polish king were stored.
