Closeness and verticality! Good photo.

I’ve never been to Gdansk but this looks deceivingly familiar! If you had not told us that this is Gdansk, but had asked us: “Where is this picture from”, I would have responded some old town in Belgium, like Leuven.

@ingrid yes, you get a very similar architecture all the way along the coast in any of the Hanseatic towns

The triangular top is very northern, but the close quarters and the winding ways can be found in any old cities that grew, as it were, vegetatively. I would have said Amsterdam but Venice feels the same. Even in my town some alleys are just gaps between buildings.
