#14 of 33 in Sightseeing in Gdansk
Landmark Tourist Spot
The Golden Gate in Gdańsk, Poland, is one of the most notable tourist attractions of the city.It was created in 1612 - 14 in place of a 13th-century gothic gate, the Brama Długouliczna . It is located at one end of Long Lane, where, together with Brama Wyżynna and Wieża Więzienna, it forms a part of the old city fortifications.It was designed by architect Abraham van den Blocke and was built by Jan Strakowski. The architectural style of the gate is Dutch mannerism. Next to it is the late-gothic building of the Brotherhood of St.George.Both sides of the gate have attiques, with figures symbolizing the qualities of the ideal citizen. They were designed in 1648 by Jeremias Falck, and reconstructed in 1878 due to the originals being damaged by weathering over time.From the West side they represent : Pax, Libertas, Fortuna and Fama . From the East side they are Concordia, Iustitia, Pietas and Prudentia . The Latin inscription on the gates reads: Concordia res publicæ parvæ crescunt – discordia magnæ concidunt .

  • This is one of the two entry points to old town. In the arch are pictures of old town when it was destroyed in the war. Outside old town is not very attractive.  more »
  • Under this gate there is a photo of Gdansk taken in 1945 and another one taken as it is now, what they have done in this city is amazing, the arch is beautifully built  more »
