In Gdańsk, it is worth seeing the tenement house covered with purple plaster at the corner of Mariacka and Mokra Streets. It has a non-typical crown. The building was originally erected in 1553. It is a unique example of the phenomenon of transitional form in architecture. A sign of the twilight of the old era and the birth of a new one. Prominent, vertical lisens, giving the crown its soaring character, are a characteristic feature of Gothic and therefore a medieval quality. Meanwhile, decorative volutes and floral ornaments, drawing the top with fractional lines, are already a typically Renaissance element, testifying to the advent of the period of rebirth. Despite this, the tenement is worth attention due to its ‘wandering history’. It has been situated in its current localisation since the times of the post-war reconstruction. Earlier, until 1945, it had been located completely somewhere else – several hundred meters further at Piwna Street, next to the main entrance to St Mary’s Church. Currently, there is a space in the square named after priest Zator-Przytocki. Before the war, the tenement frontage of the Piwna Street reached almost the very gates of the church, which meant that the entrance to the church had been located in a narrow alley. For this reason, during the post-war reconstruction of the city, it was decided to abandon the renovation of a few houses closest to the church, on the site of the then created square, in order to provide the church door with a little respite from tight urban housing. However, the form of the house was considered valuable enough that it was decided to rebuild it, but in a different place, namely at the most beautiful street in Gdańsk, Mariacka Street.
