The Great Arsenal was built between 1600-1609 in the same structure as the medieval city walls and represents some of the finest Renaissance architecture in Gdansk, designed by Opberghen. The Arsenal was badly damaged during World War II. It had to be rebuilt from scratch. It is only recently of it has regained its former glory. Today, it is occasionally open for art exhibitions and there is a small café on the ground floor, so that those thirsty for coffee can get a glimpse of the Arsenal's interior.
