The Golden Gate of Gdansk - Dluga 1 - this is the beginning of Dluga street - or the end of it depending from where you are coming.
It has been designed and build in the early 16 hundreds by a Dutch architect - and since that time is on of the entrances to Gdansk's Old Town - it has been also part of the city fortification in medieval times - now is one of the tourist attractions of Gdansk.
It was severely damaged - almost destroyed in WWII but it has been rebuilt/restored to its original form.
Also the writing in German - that was not restored originally - today can be seen on the gate as once was.
If you go to Gdansk and you walk on Ulica Dluga for sure you will end up here / or you start from here - take a few minutes to admire the architecture. It is a very interesting building with a lot of history behind it. Discover it by/for yourself.

Any visitor to Gdansk will be there. This is the entrance to the main street Dluga, in Gdansk. You really feel you are getting in to a different world once you pass it.

Passing through here you get from the famous Dluga street to the open square in front of the church where you find a lot of tourist guides, maybe not all to trust. But you can also board the hop-on-hop-off bus on the other side of the golden gate.

From Golden Gate to Green Gate is the most interesting street in Gdańsk. What makes the Golden Gate even more interesting are the two photo graphs with the arch showing what the street looked like after the bombing of WWII. You can look back and forth from the photo to the street in front of you and it is really sobering to see the destruction wrought and how the Poles have recaptured their city.

Gdansk definitely is one of the cities with most impressive gates - this one is the main entrance to the Old Town, another example of stunning architecture. make sure you have plenty of time and walk around the Old Town to find more of them.

The Golden Gate (Polish: Złota Brama; German: Langgasser Tor) in Gdańsk (former German name: Danzig), 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 (Long Street Gate). It is located at one end of Long Lane , 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.

The gate was largely destroyed by Soviet shelling in World War II, but was rebuilt in 1957. Although most artifacts of Germanness were eradicated after the city became Polish in 1945, an original German inscription on the gate was restored in the 1990s: Es müsse wohl gehen denen, die dich lieben. Es müsse Friede sein inwendig in deinen Mauern und Glück in deinen Palästen ("They shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces
