Walk the fascinating Old Town of Gdansk, visiting such landmark sites as St. Mary's Church and the renowned Oliwa Cathedral where you'll be treated to a musical performance.

Your tour begins with a scenic drive to the historic heart of Gdansk where upon arrival, you‘ll start your walk near the Golden Gate. This grand ornamental arch once served to allow access to the city through its medieval defensive walls. During your walk, you'll pass the Town Hall, Long Market and the beautiful 15th-century Palace of Artus Court.

Visit St. Mary's Church - the pride of Gdansk. Situated in the center of Old Town, this medieval church took 159 years to build. Its deceivingly plain exterior belies a bright, spacious interior with large windows and more than 30 beautifully decorated chapels.

Following some free time to explore on your own, your tour continues to Oliwa Cathedral. Located on the grounds of an old Cistercian monastery, the Oliwa Cathedral dates back to the 13th century and is a mix of Romanesque, Gothic and Rococo styles. One of the most important attractions of Oliwa lies herein, an impressive complex of three organs consisting of 7,876 tin and wood pipes which can imitate sounds of different musical instruments and natural voices. During your visit, you will be treated to a brief musical performance before returning to the ship.
