Green Gate (Brama Zielona), Gdansk
(4.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
The Green Gate in Gdańsk, Poland, is one of the city's most notable tourist attractions. It is situated between Long Market and the River Motława.HistoryWith the Golden Gate and the Highland Gate, the Green Gate spans the Long Market and Long Street, together comprising the Royal Route. The Green Gate was clearly inspired by the Antwerp City Hall. It was built 1568-71 as the formal residence of Poland's monarchs. It is a masterpiece by Regnier (or Reiner van Amsterdam), an Amsterdam architect, and reflects Flemish architectural influence in Gdańsk. Hans Kramer from Dresden was responsible for the construction plans.On 11-20 February 1646 the future Queen of Poland, Marie Louise Gonzaga, was entertained here. In the late 18th century the Nature Society was housed here, but soon moved to the Naturalists' House (Research Society House).Today the Green Gate houses the National Museum in Gdańsk. Exhibitions, meetings, conferences and shows are held here. The Gdańsk office of former Polish President Lech Wałęsa is located in one of the rooms.

  • Dlugi Targ Street ends to give access to the channel of the river Motlawa is to imagine as it once gave life to the city all commercial activity in the port area. From my point of view, one of the most beautiful in the city. Sometimes you can find someone playing music (to be an almost obligatory in the city) totally recommended

  • A really big building, you can't miss it. It's at the start/end of dulga street. And it's close to the crane. 
  • The iron point of the program, not the way it is omitted from it directly enter the old town, in the arcade you can listen to all sorts of artists presenting their skills on a variety of instruments. The place is interesting, with its charm
