Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.Arrange your visit to Green Gate (Brama Zielona) and discover more family-friendly attractions in Gdansk using our Gdansk trip itinerary planner.

Acho esse portão muito mais bonito e interessante que o Golden Gate. Ele foi projetado como uma mansão para hospedar a realeza porem, só foi utilizado uma vez.I think that much more beautiful and interesting gate to the Golden Gate. It was designed as a mansion to host the Royals but was only used once.show original
Zielona Brama jest zwieńczeniem ulicy Długiej co już powinno być reklamą samą w sobie. W przejściach często można usłyszeć świetną muzykę na żywoGreen gate is the culmination of a long street which should no longer be an advertisement in itself. In the aisles you can often hear great live musicshow original
