The areas of the Grodzisko Fort are managed by a special municipal unit called:"Gdansk Fortress" Culture Park of City Fortifications. The Grodzisko Quarter is a small part of the centre of Gdansk, unique because of its history and an architectural shape which has remained almost unchanged for the last one hundred years or so.

The most important historic and urban complexes located here include the fortifications of the Grodzisko Fort together with the fortress park, a former Corpus Christi hospital with a very precious church and a compact complex of prison buildings located at the Kurkowa Street, where the Investigation Prison is now located. We particularly recommend the following vantage points: Jerosolima Bastion with Millennium Monument and Napoleon vantage point with a table and a map of Gdansk siege in 1807, vantage point with a view to the Old Town, the building of Napoleon Redoubt, Cemetery of Non-Existing Cemeteries ; the Group of Corpus Christi, Post-fortress park, Natural path, Ecological grounds and the workshop of artistic farrier’s art and metal-work . Grodzisko fort is opened for the whole year for all those who are interested in finding out more about this great corner of the ancient fortifications located nearby the city centre.
