although the big empty block in the middle ground above is now developed with retroversionist /contemporary kamienice, not bad, but would prefer more accurate historic reconstructions that will stand the test of time.

I guess bad taste isn't the best building material.

And what about the suburbs: another interesting note. A compact Catholic hinterground would be entered almost immediately behind the city gates with the only exception to the east - the Nehrung (across the Vistula) and small exclaves like Pruszcz, Orunia or several Kashubian villages owned by Danziger Protestant landlords.

I stand corrected: in Gdansk Główne Miasto (Main Town) nearly 100% were Protestants. It is impossible to estabish, whether it was 91 or 99%, there was no statistical office at that time Regarding Catholics in Główne Miasto: they haven't got any churches left. St Nicholas wasn't a parish church - it was Dominican church, under the protection of king Sigismund - that's why it wasn't used by Protestants.

St Bridget's and St Joseph's were outside the Main Town, and IIRC they were not parish churches as well.

There is a book that can be found in the main library in Gdansk.The title is "Wspomnienia z odbudowy głównego miasta"(Memories from the reconstruction of main town).Worth of reading.Highly recommended.

The only thread that comes to my mind regarding the subject: a couple of 1945 photos that a friend of mine discovered in a Russian web archive. I'm quite sure they haven't been published outside Russia so far. Gdańsk, then Częstochowa and Budapest.

With more renovations (colourful facades), some trees and cobblestone-covered street it will be absolutely charming place

"Declaratio vera" (1577), "Kancyonał" (1641) and "Kancionał to jest Pieśni chrześćiańskie" (1693)








If you're interested in the pre-1793 prints and documents (especially policies by Executive committee) published in Gdańsk, you'll find over 1000 titles within Bavarian State Library.
For example:
- "Vniversal poborovvy rokv ... 1577" (Stefan Batory, 1577)
- "Vladislao IV. Poloniae & Sueciae Rege primum Post felicem Coronationem die XIX Decembris Anno M DC XXXIV." (1634)
- "Kancyonał : to jest Ksiegi Psalmow y Piesni Duchownych" (1641)
- "Przedmovva zalobna przed wyprowadzeniem z zamku do kościoła szlachetnego ciała ... Evphrozyney z Szwarcwaldow Krokowskiey ..." (Jan Musonius, 1641)
- "Gestrvm Vladislai IV Pol. et Svec." (1643)
- "Gratulatio, Augustissimi Serenissimi... Vladislai IV. regis Poloniae... et Serenissimae... Ludovicae Mariae Gonzagae, reginae Poloniae et Sveciae... nuptiis" (1646)
- "Commentariorum Chotinensis belli libri tres : opus posthumum" (Jakub Sobieski, 1646)
- "Oratio ad famam semper prosperam... Vladislai IV. Poloniae et Sueciae regis..." (1648)
- "Polonia defensa contra Jo. Barclaium" (1648)
- "Joachimi Pastorii Florus Polonicus Seu Polonicae Historiae Epitome Nova" (1651)
- "Gestorum populi Poloni sub Henrico Valesio Polonorum" (1652)
- "Simonis Starovolsci Polonia" (1652)
- "Stanisl. [Kobierzycko] Kobierzycki Obsidio clari montis Czestochoviensis in regno Poloniae" (1659)
- "Kurtze Erklaehrung Der Sinnbilder und Gedenck-Sprueche So an dem Feurwerck zu sehen und zu lesen. Welches an dem Kroehnungs-Tag Joannis des III. Koeniglicher Majestaet in Pohlen" (1676)
- "Historiae Poloniae Pars prior" (1680)
- "Joachimi Pastorii De praecipuis beneficiis et successibus qvibus divina gratia s. regiam majestatem et Rempubl[icam] Poloniae universam" (1680)
- "Kancjonał to jest Ksiegi Psalmów. Modlitwy publiczne. Modlitwy chrześcianskie." (Christian Mansklapp/Jan Rybiński, 1684)
And so on...

Not bad, not bad..... but too bad on this place. Why not reco's and place these buildings somewhere a bit outside of the Altstadt/Stare Miasto?

This is the Gdansk waterfront in 1687. Every single house shown in your photograph had stood almost untouched from this time. Gdansk grew in wealth during the Thirty Years war and these bland Baroque facades were supposed to be the showy results. I would love to see any surviving images of the Hanseatic or Renaissance beauties they replaced.
