Once you finally reach Gdansk Old Town, you will leave the bus and willtouralong the main street from the Golden Gate to the Green Gate. (which in fact is not green at all, but you will learn the story why people call it green.) Once nearly destroyed during the war, this lovely town will capture your heart with its bright-coloured houses andmansions of Polish merchants and nobility, recreated almost from ruins. You will learn how to read history from bricks,and will admire the Town Hall of Gdansk and the largest brick cathedral in the world - St. Mary's Basilica. (*inside visit is NOT included, we recommend to visit the church during free time for self-exploration at the end of the tour)
