Amazing view of Gdansk. 10 zloty pP. Go there early, right when they open....otherwise the small platform at the top will be very crowded.

Anna Mabbett

Went up the tower, view was incredible. Quite small viewing platform so there was a limit of who could go up due to social distancing


Spectacular views of the city! The stairs are hard to climb for larger people.
