Gdansk – Old Gdansk Map

© The Trustees of the British Museum

As a little addendum to the Gdansk trip series of posts, this is what I consider to be an interesting early map of Gdansk, or Dantizick as it was known then. Clicking on the image should make it larger, it’s a little challenging to compare this with the current layout of the city, but some of the key buildings are visible. The British Library aren’t quite sure of the date, but it’s sometime in the middle of the eighteenth century.
