The Dwor Artusa was in many respects the epicentre of Gdansk's mercantile galaxy. Named after the mythical British King Arthur, it provided an arena for the movers and shakers of Gdansk to strut their stuff in knightly style. The enterprise was inspired by the courts of King Arthur, and the merchants endeavoured to emulate the chivalrous, brotherly ideals that were espoused in the Arthurian legends. Originally founded in 1350, the edifice got a sumptuous baroque make-over in the seventeenth century, although nearly all was lost in 1945. Thankfully, large sections of the interior had been spirited away, and these are amongst the highpoints of this splendidly reconstructed treasure.

Quite a sight. As if one were to be pulled back in time.
Worth dropping by. Gives an idea of how wealthy the city was in Renaissance times. Likewise the facades of buildings, all beautifully restored
Artus Court is a sumptuous mansion on Dluga Street, right in the centre of Gdansk by the fountain of Neptune. Stunning interiors
